Hallmark Channel News: On the Anniversary of its Final Episode, Relive ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Classic Moments!

On Jan. 13, 2012, ONE LIFE TO LIVE aired its last episode on ABC. Although OLTL and ALL MY CHILDREN were both canceled at the same time, OLTL aired its last show nearly four months after AMC gave its final bow.

OLTL made its debut on July 15, 1968, created by the late daytime legend Agnes Nixon. In the beginning, the soap focused around the Lord family, especially Viki Lord, played by Emmy winner Erika Slezak. But over the decades expanded its scope to encompass all the diverse citizens of Llanview.

After AMC moved production to California in 2009, OLTL remained the last daytime soap still filmed in New York City. But after nearly 43 years on the air, ABC announced OLTL’s cancelation on April 14, 2011. Prospect Park purchased the rights and broadcast an online relaunch of OLTL starting on April 29, 2013 via iTunes and Hulu, but it was sadly short-lived.

Celebrate the glory days of this beloved daytime institution in our special flashback gallery below!

Hallmark Channel News --- MADDIE Y ABBY, EL REGRESO

¿Abby Lee y Maddie Ziegler trabajarán juntas en un nuevo proyecto?


Mientras disfrutamos del talento de la asombrosa Maddie en Dance Moms, no podemos evitar hacernos la pregunta: ¿Qué hará después del show? 
La muchacha, como no podía ser de otra manera, está llena de ideas y proyectos por venir, y no solo relacionados con la danza. 

En cuanto a su carrera cinematográfica, ya ha comenzado a poner en marcha varios de ellos. Por un lado, se encuentra promocionando el film “The Book of Henry”, a estrenarse este año, en el que tuvo el honor de actuar junto con grandes figuras de Hollywood como Naomi Watts y Sarah Silverman. Mientras tanto, está trabajando en el rodaje de la película “Sister”, dirigida por la cantautora Sia (¡nunca nos cansaremos de esta dupla inseparable!). 
  
Pero eso no es todo. Recientemente se ha revelado la posibilidad de llevar adelante un proyecto con la mismísima Abby Lee, ¿puedes imaginarlo? Aunque la singular entrenadora expresó gran alegría y orgullo por la futura carrera de su alumna estrella, hacerse a un lado por completo definitivamente no era una opción. 

Qué se traerán entre manos estas dos, permanece aún como un misterio. Sin embargo, Abby sugirió que, si mantenemos los dedos cruzados, dentro de no mucho tiempo podremos verlo en nuestras pantallas de televisión, incluso en nuestras computadoras. 

¡Esperamos con ansias que este enigmático proyecto salga a la luz! Y, para tolerar la espera, afortunadamente contamos con la mejor medicina, pues aún nos queda mucho de Maddie por ver. 

¿Qué estarán planeando esta increíble bailarina y su tenaz instructora? Si quieres algunas pistas para averiguarlo, no dejes de ver Dance Moms, DOMINGOS a la Noche.

Christmas Land is a festive and magical new movie slated to premiere in two days. Still plugging away at their “Countdown to Christmas,” programming event Hallmark has released a slew of incredibly heartwarming movies this season to elevate your holiday spirit. Christmas Land is about a busy businesswoman who finds out that she has inherited a Christmas-themed farm from her deceased grandmother. This holiday feature is directed by Sam Irvin and written by Robin Archer, Jay Cipriani, and Daisy Maclean. The cast stars Nikki Deloach as Jules Cooper, Luke Macfarlane as Tucker Martin, Richard Karn as Mason Richards, and Jason-Shane Scott as Mitchell.

Hallmark’s Christmas Land Synopsis

Christmas Land follows Jules Cooper, a marketing exec who learns that her dear grandmother, Glinda, has passed away. Not only that, but she is told that her grandmother left her a Christmas tree farm in need of repair. Tucker Martin, the handsome attorney who is overseeing the countryside property, encourages Jules to think long and hard about selling the farm. Not wanting to deal with it at first, Jules has a change of heart once she lays eyes on the place again, which brings back warm and cozy memories of spending time on the farm with her grandmother as a child. With just the right touch, it’s possible that she can restore the magic back to this Christmas farm once again. First, she must deal with a shrewd businessman named Mason Richards, who wants the charming Christmas-themed village all to himself. Now, Jules must decide whether she wants to go back home to her boyfriend and continue working on her growing career, or if she wants to stay to see how her new budding relationship with Tucker Martin develops.

Filming for Christmas Land took place in Salt Lake City, Utah, according to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB). Producers absolutely love filming there, since Utah is known for its beautiful mountains, picturesque scenes, natural resources, and generous film production tax breaks. Hallmark’s Christmas Land doesn’t skimp on the holiday charm. It has all of the elements of Christmas that viewers look forward to seeing in a movie. You’ll enjoy the powdery white streets, the majestic snow-capped mountains, the dark olive trees, with specks of bright red that peek out in just about every scene.

Its stunning views definitely exude an elegance and charm that makes a Hallmark viewer want to grab a blanket and sit by the fireplace during the movie. Additionally, the writing and the actors deliver an impressive storyline showcasing all that makes the season bright.

Hallmark Channel News: Lori Loughlin, now in 'When Calls the Heart,' is enjoying more than just a Hallmark moment


Lori Loughlin likes a whole lot of things about being a go-to actress for Hallmark Channel.

“You know there won’t be anything where, if your kids walk into the room, you have to change the channel,” she says. “I know I won’t be doing anything on the screen that I wouldn’t want my teenage daughter to do.”

And then there’s job security.

“It’s a lot like the old studio system,” she says. “They have you under contract and if they like you, they keep you working.”

They certainly keep Loughlin working.

She stars alongside Erin Krakow, Daniel Lissing and Jack Wagner as Abigail Spencer in “When Calls the Heart,” a movie-turned-popular-series that returns Saturday at 8 p.m.

Loughlin also stars in the next “Garage Sale Mysteries” movie and just finished the holiday film “North Pole 2” with Dermot Mulroney.


“I had no idea that at this point in my career I’d be working so much,” says Loughlin, who turned 50 last year. “Honestly, it’s caught me a little off guard.”

Her biggest challenge these days, she says, is juggling her work with her home life. She and husband Mossimo Giannulli have two daughters and a son from his previous marriage.

“I’m a wife and mother,” she says. “I love acting, but I leave it all on the set. My kids are in high school and when I get home, I’m just ‘Mom.’ They don’t even watch most of my shows.”

Loughlin says she enjoyed her earlier shows “90210” and “Full House,” for which Netflix is putting together a sequel that she might join. But Hallmark is a nice anchor.

“I love Abigail,” she says. “I love her strength and her spirit. I think there are ways I’m like her, and it’s pretty special play such a strong woman.”

Hallmark Channel News: Bailee Madison uses Taylor Swift's cancer announcement to get her mom in for a check-up


Taylor Swift announced on her Tumblr on Thursday (April 9) morning that her mother, Andrea Finlay, has been diagnosed with cancer. Following the pop star's upsetting news, actress Bailee Madison took to Twitter to let Swift know that her message helped inspire her own mother, Patricia Riley, to go to the doctors to have her health checked.

"We've been trying to convince my mom to get checked out for months now, but she hasn't yet," writes Madison. "She focuses on what other people need more than what she needs ... I think moms have a way of doing that ... but after me reading this to her she has finally agreed [to get checked]."

A spine-tingling mystery awaits Candace Cameron Bure (“Christmas Under Wraps,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “Full House”) and five-time Golden Globe nominee Marilu Henner (“Taxi,” “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”) in A BONE TO PICK: AN AURORA TEAGARDEN MYSTERY. This Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Original Movie World Premiere is the first in the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries; future installments of “Aurora Teagarden” will be seen exclusively on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President of Programming, Crown Media Family Networks, commented on the planned series of “Aurora Teagarden” Originals: Audiences are going to love seeing Charlaine Harris’s exhilarating ‘whodunits’ on TV, led by one of Crown Media Family’s own, the very talented Candace Cameron Bure. We’re also so fortunate to have award-winning actress Marilu Henner starring in the film, her chemistry with Candace as mother and daughter is unbeatable.

Hallmark News: Hallmark Channels Launch Production Arm to Fund TV Movies, Series (EXCLUSIVE)


The parent company of Hallmark Channel is stepping up its investment in original content with the launch of Crown Media Productions. The new unit is designed to allow the Hallmark and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channels to own more of their programming outright and to control it across multiple platforms worldwide. Crown Media Prods. aims to bankroll the production of up to six telepics this year, with the goal of doubling that number by 2016. The production arm will be overseen by Michelle Vicary (pictured), exec VP of programming for both cablers, which are units of Crown Media Family Networks. The creation of a Los Angeles-based production operation marks “the next stage of the company’s evolution,” Vicary said. “A production arm creates the infrastructure that makes it possible for us to keep up with an ever-growing demand for more and more original Hallmark-branded programming across a variety of platforms, and it benefits Crown Media with more direct input into the creative process and financing, rights retention, and growing one of the best family film libraries in entertainment,” she said. The move comes as Hallmark is expanding its original programming focus to include original series as well as its trademark heart-tugging telepics. Hallmark Channel’s slate of original skeins at present include the Andie MacDowell starrer “Cedar Cove” and “Good Witch,” toplined by Catherine Bell and James Denton. Crown Media’s decision to fund its own productions makes sense at a time when off-network content licensing becoming a bigger part of the revenue picture for most established cablers. Vicary said she intends to make the rounds of Hollywood’s talent agencies in the coming weeks to explain Crown Media’s focus and shop for talent and material.

Hallmark Channel News: Hallmark Channel Extends Kitten Competition To Summer


Hallmark Channel is extending its Super Bowl counterprogramming kitten competition franchise to the summer, with Kitten Summer Games. It will premiere on the network in August 2016 and will showcase hundreds of adoptable kittens. “With our phenomenal shelter partners, Crown Media Family Networks is having a positive impact on rescuing animals from high kill shelters and significantly increasing the numbers of shelter pet adoptions,” said Bill Abbott, President & CEO, Crown Media Family Networks. More than 20 shelter partners of North Shore Animal League America came together to host Kitten Bowl II viewing parties which resulted in hundreds of animals being adopted on Su-Purr Sunday. Hallmark Channel hopes many more shelters will host adoption parties around Kitten Summer Games with the goal of dramatically increasing pet adoptions. Kitten Summer Games is executive produced by 3 Ball Entertainment’s JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Adam Kaloustian and Brant Pinvidic, with Jesse Drollette serving as co-executive producer. 3 Ball Entertainment credits include Extreme Weight Loss (ABC), Bar Rescue (Spike) and My Cat From Hell (Animal Planet), among others. Crown Media Family Networks, which owns and operates Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, is the home of Pet Project, the company’s pro-social initiative, which utilizes entertainment to show the joys pets bring to lives. The company recently adopted Happy The Cat from a shelter in rural Ohio, and Happy The Dog who was abandoned on a street in South Los Angeles.

Hallmark Channel News: GOOD WITCH Fans Asking, ‘Where is Chris Potter?’ but Hallmark Urging Viewers to Save the Date! (Video)


Hallmark Channel is urging viewers to “Save the Date” for the upcoming 2-hour premiere of the Hallmark Channel Original Primetime Series, GOOD WITCH on February 28. The series will star Catherine Bell (“Army Wives,” “JAG,” “Bruce Almighty”), who returns to the network as audiences’ beloved ‘good witch’ Cassie Nightingale, alongside series regulars Bailee Madison (“Northpole,” “Just Go With It,” ”The Fosters”) and Golden Globe Award and two-time Screen Actors Guild Award winner James Denton (“Desperate Housewives”). Fans of the “Good Witch” movies, the network’s most successful Original Movie franchise of all-time, are super-excited to learn just what the series will entail, although many seem apprehensive about changes that could be made when the storylines go from occasional movie to weekly series. But, the network seems confident that GOOD WITCH will inspire with each intriguing episode and will have viewers immediately charmed by the quaint town of Middleton–which is in store for new changes, big surprises, and, of course, a little bit of magic! GOOD WITCH will take viewers on a new magical journey with Cassie Nightingale (Bell) and her bright, young-teenage daughter Grace (Madison), who shares her mom’s special intuitive charm. When Sam, a doctor (Denton), and his teenage son move in next door to Grey House, they are immediately charmed by the ‘magical’ mother-daughter duo and wonder is it really magic, a lucky coincidence or just a special intuitive insight only this family possesses? While there is great anticipation related to the upcoming premiere, there is also a lot of apprehension, with doubts about the addition of James Denton—and the apparent absence of Chris Potter, who played Cassie’s husband, Jake, in the movies. For example, in response to an earlier article, TVRuckus reader r.c. young commented: I love the movies and must admit that if they decide to take the series in another direction and have Cassie single or divorced or separated from Jake I will not be watching it. I did see the advertising of the series and only saw James Denton, a young girl and Cassie. I do wish the series much success. With so much going on in the world so much change I had hoped something would stay the same. I will be re-watching the movies. And, reader Sandra agreed: As others have stated if Chris Potter isn’t in the series I will not be watching James Denton great looking and great actor but for this show we need the original cast. The only indication Hallmark Channel has given at this point about the creative direction of the show and the characters is that when the storyline of the TV show picks up, several years have passed since we last saw the “Good Witch” franchise characters. Previously, we were told the story would be five years down the road; however, we just received the following info from Hallmark Channel, following this morning’s publication of this article, based on answers they indicated they have given to questions on the official “Good Witch” Facebook page: Unfortunately Chris Potter is committed to another series (which he has been on for the last 7 years) and was not available for the Good Witch series- we will miss him! And the series is about 10 years since the last movie but many of the characters from the movies will be in the series “Martha” “Derek” “George” “Lori” “Brandon”with some new great characters being introduced too! Grey House and Middleton and Bell Book And Candle are all there, the series is based on the movies but with the series weekly 1-hour format vs the movies yearly 2-hour format, it has given the writers an opportunity to introduce new characters and storylines and expand on the characters and storylines from the movies too. The series is made from the same great production team that brought the 7 movies. The series will have the same great magic you loved! Will fans make good on their vow not to watch if Chris Potter is not involved with the project? Or, will the audience find that, in fact, the storyline brings a different but equally enjoyable “Good Witch” to Hallmark Channel as a series? And, if Chris Potter’s character will have no part in the series, does that mean he will not be involved in any future “Good Witch” movies? Only one way to find out the answer to these questions: Stay tuned and, as Hallmark Channel is asking fans, save the date. GOOD WITCH, the Hallmark Original Series, premieres on Hallmark Channel on Saturday, February 28, at 8/7c.
