STUDIO CITY, CA – September 22, 2022 – Hallmark Media celebrates 13 years of Christmas programming with 40 all-new, original movie premieres across Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. The perennial popularity of the networks’ annual holiday programming events has catapulted Hallmark Channel to the top of the ratings, with the network becoming the most-watched entertainment cable network in Q4 among Women 18+ for eight consecutive years; among Women 25-54 for six straight years and among Households and Total Viewers for five years in a row.*

This year, the pop culture phenomenon returns with round-the-clock holiday programming starting Friday, October 21, when Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ “Miracles of Christmas” kick off the yuletide season. That same day, Hallmark Movies Now, the company’s standalone streaming service, kicks off its annual holiday celebration “Movies & Mistletoe” that will offer subscribers more than 150 Christmas movies with new content becoming available each week through the end of the year.

Viewers can look forward to seeing their favorite stars returning in all-new holiday movies, including, Lacey Chabert, who stars in a record-breaking twelfth Christmas movie for Hallmark this year, Alison Sweeney, Andrew Walker, Ashley Williams, Benjamin Ayres, Brennan Elliott, Brooks Darnell, Erin Cahill, Holly Robinson Peete, Jonathan Bennett, Kristoffer Polaha, Luke Macfarlane, Marilu Henner, Nikki DeLoach, Paul Campbell, Rachel Boston, Ryan Paevey, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Taylor Cole, Tyler Hynes, Victor Webster, Will Kemp and more.

Hallmark is thrilled to welcome exciting and legendary new talent helping to make this year’s lineup merry and bright, such as award-winning actress Marlo Thomas, Ann-Margret, Ellen Travolta, Greta Scacchi, Kara Wang, Grammy Award-winning R&B artist Ledisi, Emmy Award winner Lynn Whitfield, Margaret Colin, Moira Kelly, Mykelti Williamson, Reginald VelJohnson, Reshma Shetty, Stephen Tobolowsky, Tamala Jones, Tia Carrere and Yael Grobglas, among many others that will light up the screen.

In the spirit of the network’s 2022 ratings hit “The Wedding Veil” trilogy, “Three Wise Men and a Baby” brings together three of Hallmark’s most popular leading men, Paul Campbell, Tyler Hynes and Andrew Walker. The trio stars as brothers who get the surprise of their lives when they are forced to work together to care for a baby over the holidays. As they slowly get the hang of things, they find themselves on unexpected journeys of self-discovery and begin to rebuild their relationships as brothers, as well as the damaged romantic and professional relationships in their respective lives… all while rediscovering their love of Christmas.

Continuing the tradition of working with top recording artists, this year’s original movie premieres will feature special songs celebrating the sounds of the season. “When I Think of Christmas,” starring Shenae Grimes-Beech, Niall Matter and Beth Broderick, features the song of the same name co-written by six-time Grammy(R) Award winner Amy Grant, Matt Maher and Jason Ingram. R&B recording artist Ledisi stars in “All Saints Christmas” and performs her original song “Home on Christmas” as well as “Be There for Christmas,” while other tracks from her album It’s Christmas will be featured in the movie.

On Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, viewers can celebrate the holidays with new originals inspired by two beloved Hallmark brands. “The Gift of Peace,” starring Nikki DeLoach and Brennan Elliott, is the first movie produced under DaySpring, the highly popular faith-based brand and “The Holiday Stocking,” starring Nadine Ellis, Tamala Jones, BJ Britt, Karon Riley and Mykelti Williamson is the third installment of the critically acclaimed Mahogany banner and first Christmas movie.

Hallmark’s commitment to creating heartwarming holiday movies that offer something for everyone continues. On Hallmark Channel, the rich and diverse culture of Chinese Americans is at the heart of two movies, “A Big Fat Family Christmas” and “Christmas at the Golden Dragon.” “Hanukkah on Rye” is a new story set against the backdrop of The Festival of Lights while “Holiday Heritage” starring Lyndie Greenwood, Brooks Darnell and Holly Robinson Peete, marks the network’s first-ever movie celebrating Kwanzaa. “The Holiday Sitter” features Jonathan Bennett and George Krissa as the first lead LGBTQ+ couple in a holiday movie. On Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, “Our Italian Christmas Memories” starring Sarah Power and Beau Bridges is a touching tale about Italian siblings who look to a family tradition as they try to jog the memory of their grandfather struggling with dementia.

Hallmark Media extends the celebration beyond the screen with numerous ways for viewers to bring the Hallmark holiday magic to life.

To Her, With Love 9/11 on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries





‘TO HER, WITH LOVE,’ A HALLMARK MAHOGANY PRESENTATION STARRING SKYE P. MARSHALL AND TOBIAS TRUVILLION
WITH A SPECIAL CAMEO BY SHANICE PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 11, ON HALLMARK MOVIES & MYSTERIES
STUDIO CITY, CA – August 11, 2022 – Hallmark Mahogany presents “To Her, With
Love,” a new original starring Skye P. Marshall (“Good Sam,” “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”)
and Tobias Truvillion (“One Life to Live,” “Sand Dollar Cove”), and premiering Sunday,
September 11 (9 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Hit singer-songwriter Shanice
Wilson-Knox (“Pose”) appears in a cameo role as herself in the movie, which celebrates the
lifechanging power of the arts and dedicated teachers.

Kayla (Marshall) heads back to her hometown of Stoneville, North Carolina, after her
substitute teaching job at an elite, private high school comes to an early end. On her first day
back, her loving yet inquisitive mother (Maria Howell, Hidden Figures) sets up a job interview at
her high school alma mater. Kayla, who ultimately wants to get into a competitive teaching
program in London, is hesitant to apply. However, when she is offered the job on the spot,
shortly after learning that her high school best friend Tanya (Brittany L. Smith, “Sweet Magnolias”)
is a teacher there, she quickly accepts. When Kayla initially struggles to connect with her
students, Jordan (Truvillion), a jack-of-all-trades teacher who is devoted to supporting
underserved students, steps in to help. Though reluctant to accept his input at first, she is soon
inspired to try a fresh approach to help each of her students tap into their unique artistic passions
and her students begin flourishing. When Kayla learns the school may be cutting the arts
department due to budget cuts, she and Jordan work together to set up a fundraising showcase,
with a little help from her longtime friend Shanice Wilson-Knox. Soon, sparks are flying between
Kayla and Jordan as they discover a shared love of teaching, service and Sidney Poitier movies.
However, when Kayla receives some teaching opportunities that would take her away from
Stoneville – and Jordan – she finds that her heart may still have a few things to teach her about
what will make her happy.

“To Her, With Love” is from Hallmark Media. Beverley Gordon is executive producer.
Daniel Lewis is producer and Eric Upshur is co-producer. Stan Foster directed from a script by
Tyler Straessle.

Movie Features Original Music Performed by Denton and Saum

STUDIO CITY, CA – August 22, 2022 – James Denton (“Desperate Housewives,” “A Kiss Before Christmas”) and Sherri Saum (“The Fosters”) star in “Perfect Harmony,” a new original premiering this fall on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Sheppard Denton reunites with his father on-screen for the first time since his debut role in Hallmark Channel’s “For Love and Honor” in 2016. Denton performs the original song “Ooh Wee Ooh,” and Saum duets with him on “Perfect Harmony,” also written especially for the movie.

When Jack Chandeller (Denton) and Barrett Woodward’s (Saum) mutual friends Naomi (Julia Benson, “Seasoned with Love”) and Simon (Peter Benson, “Big Sky River”) are ready to tie the knot, they ask the pair to be Best Man and Maid of Honor. Barrett is a buttoned-up college professor. Jack on the other hand, is a laid-back, former pop star. They have been like oil and water since they met 10 years prior but, to support Naomi and Simon, they agree to set aside their differences. At the engagement party, Barrett is horrified to learn Jack’s plan for party music was nothing more than a playlist. She guilts him into performing but he insists she join him on stage, much to his son Teddy’s (Sheppard Denton) dismay as Barrett also happens to be his professor. Jack and Barrett bring down the house with their duet and with that, the frost between them begins to thaw.

Slowly, they begin to change their perceptions of each other and find they may be more in tune than either of them would have imagined.
