| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bob Newhart will return to television in August as the star of ‘‘Herb’s Murders,’’ a two-hour original telefilm on the Hallmark Channel.

In ‘‘Murders,’’ Chicago-native Newhart, 78, will play a Los Angeles detective who investigates a publisher’s killing along with his daughter, also a police officer.

The project is one of several announced this week by Hallmark.

Other projects are ‘‘The Ride of Her Life,’’ with former ‘‘7th Heaven’’ star Stephen Collins; ‘‘Thanksgiving Reunion,’’ headlined by Jacqueline Bisset, which will air in November; and ‘‘Ladies of the House,’’ about three women (Pam Grier, Florence Henderson and Donna Mills) who work on a home renovation project sponsored by their church.
