After a tragic loss, each character embarks on an empowering journey of transformation and self-discovery while also uncovering a twisted web of secrets, threatening to tear the family and their small Colorado town apart at the seams. Emotions run high and clashes are common in the complicated Murray clan, but they are a tight-knit group who don’t give up easily.

“There’s nothing I love more than a grounded family drama that delivers dynamic and inclusive storytelling so when I first read Rebecca & Chris’ pilot, I was instantly hooked,” remarked Greg Gugliotta, Executive Producer, Nitelite Entertainment. “We knew that the Murray Ranch would find a home and we’re proud and excited to be part of the venerable Hallmark family in 2023.”

Color My World With Love 6/12 on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries





LILY D. MOORE, ERICA DURANCE, BENJAMIN AYRES AND DAVID DESANCTIS STAR IN ‘COLOR MY WORLD WITH LOVE,’
A NEW ORIGINAL PREMIERING JUNE 12, ON HALLMARK MOVIES & MYSTERIES

STUDIO CITY, CA – May 12, 2022 – Lily D. Moore (“Never Have I Ever”), Erica Durance (“North
to Home,” “Open by Christmas”), Benjamin Ayres (“You, Me & the Christmas Trees,” “Detention
Adventure”) and David DeSanctis (“Where Hope Grows”) star in “Color My World with Love,” a new
original premiering Sunday, June 12 (9 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
“Everyone has a dream to fall in love and get married one day, even people with disabilities,”
said Lily D. Moore. “I hope viewers take away that ‘Color My World with Love’ is about painting your
own story through your emotions and that we all have endless possibilities.”

Kendall (Moore) is a talented artist with Down Syndrome who creates beautiful paintings in the
Impressionist style that reflect the reality of her subjects as she sees them. Thanks to the support of
her mother, Emma (Durance), and grandmother, Bev (Karen Kruper, “The Wedding Veil”), Kendall is
happy and thriving. Her life takes an exciting turn when she meets Brad (DeSanctis) in a cooking class
at the local center for diverse learners and romance blooms. Emma has spent the last 22 years trying
to protect her daughter and has reservations about Kendall and Brad’s new relationship, especially
when it quickly moves in a serious direction. Not wanting Kendall to experience heartbreak, Emma
tries to slow things down. With the help of Nic (Ayres), a longtime family friend of Brad’s, Emma slowly

accepts that Kendall is ready to – and should – live her own life. In the process, Emma learns a lesson
from Kendall about how to look beyond what’s in front of you and see the beauty that exists. And, just
maybe, she finds herself ready to find love once again.

“Color My World with Love” is from Spell Love Road Productions Ltd. Jonathan Eskenas,
Kimberley Bradley, Denielle Jackson and Orly Adelson are executive producers. The movie was
produced by Charles Cooper. Peter Benson directed from a script by Pamela Wallace and Charlie
Shahnaian & Shari Simpson.
