CMT is adding made-for-television movies to its programming lineup, and LeAnn Rimes and Laura Bell Bundy will star in the first two films. The one featuring Laura Bell is called To The Mat, which also stars Ricky Schroder, and is set to premiere sometime in August. LeAnn's flick is called Reel Love, and production gets underway in April. The movie is tentatively scheduled to air in September.

CMT Original Movies was created in the wake of the success of CMT Films, which produced and distributed such movies as Broken Bridges and Beer For My Horses, both of which starred Toby Keith, and the Emmy-nominated Dale, about the life of NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt.
