It was just announced that Hallmark Movies & Mysteries has been given the green light for the making of a brand new mystery movie starring the couple.  The movie is written by Walter Klenhard, who has been a big hand in the popular “Garage Sale Mysteries” movies on Hallmark.

Alexa and Carlos will star alongside one another in the new mystery movie.  Alexa’s character owns a photo studio where she creates beautiful portraits for special occasions as well as for real estate brokers, etc.  She uses her strong intuition and innate ability to help solve mysteries that somehow find her.  In addition to photography, Alexa’s character gets a part time job using her videography skills and starts making her way down to breaking stories.  If she is able to get good footage, she attempts selling it to a local news station.  

This is where her real life husband, Carlos comes in.  He plays a detective for the local police.  They continue to run into each other at the scenes of these breaking stories.  

Carlos realizes that he needs Alexa in his crime-solving world, making this an unstoppable crime solving duo.  

Carlos and Alexa attended the 2018 TCA’s last night in Pasadena, California.  He hinted at a big 2018 with Hallmark Channel in the photo posted to his Instagram hours ago, saying, “Absolutely adore this woman 🙂 Loved celebrating with @hallmarkchannel tonight. Big things happening in 2018!!! Can’t believe how blessed we are to be part of this family!!! #datenight #TCA18 #hallmark#THANKYOU.

“We have been fortunate enough to work with the talented Alexa and Carlos PenaVega on some of our most successful projects,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. “Bringing them together coupled with the mystery prose of Walter Klenhard is sure to be one of the next hit mysteries for the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries audience.”
