'Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove' premiere: Does Hallmark's adaptation live up to the books?
MacDowell stars as Olivia Lockhart, the municipal judge in the titular town, a coastal community in Washington State that's so idyllic it almost harkens back to a different era of television. In the two-hour pilot, Olivia is offered the change to take the federal bench -- a job that would take her out of Cedar Cove. You can probably guess how that resolves itself.
