Hallmark Channel Greenlights New RHI Entertainment Productions

NEW YORK -- RHI Entertainment has received the greenlight to produce no less than 12 original television movies and three miniseries for a 2007 delivery to the Hallmark Channel. The agreement was announced today by Robert Halmi, Jr., President and CEO of RHI Entertainment.

This domestic production arrangement is indicative of the incredible range and value of the RHI product. By combining marquee talent, exotic shooting locations, high production values and powerful storylines, RHI Entertainment consistently delivers large-scale productions with cinema-release quality.

The first three of these telefilms are currently in production on the West Coast.

Love is a Four Letter Word is a romantic comedy about divorce lawyers featuring an all-star cast that includes Teri Polo (Meet The Parents), Robert Mailhouse (Sports Night), Barry Bostwick (Spin City) and Donna Mills (Knots Landing).

�The Hallmark Channel is now one of the most popular cable networks in the US, due in part to our broad range of original, quality movies and miniseries,� said Robert Halmi, Jr. �We are excited that RHI Entertainment will continue to be a part of the Hallmark Channel.�

This recent agreement continues the long-standing relationship between the two companies. Since their first deal in 2000, RHI has delivered over 150 movies and miniseries to the Hallmark Channel including the highly rated Meet the Santas, Love Comes Softly, and The Reading Room.
