Mariah Carey is making her directorial debut on the Hallmark Channel.

Carey will direct and co-star in "Mariah Carey's Christmas Project," the network announced last week. Production will begin in the fall. The scripted film is slated to air in December as part of its annual "Countdown to Christmas" programming.

The announcement comes at a busy time for the singer. This week she'll receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She recently launched a residency in Las Vegas where she performs her No. 1 hits, including "Vision of Love," ''Hero" and "We Belong Together."
