'THE BIGGEST LOSER' HOST ALISON SWEENEY WILL STAR AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCE 'RADIO HYPE,'
A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE IN DEVELOPMENT
Alison Sweeney Returns To Hallmark Channel With An All New Original Movie
Alison Sweeney ("The Biggest Loser," "Days Of Our Lives," "Second Chances") is in development with Hallmark Channel to star-in and executive produce "Radio Hype," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie. Sweeney will star as a radio host who moves to Chicago for her boyfriend and a new hosting gig, when her picture perfect relationship abruptly ends. She shares her troubles with a fellow colleague, not realizing he is a competing shock jock. When these rivals must work together, they soon find out they have more in common than their radio personas reveal.
"Having Alison Sweeney back in a Hallmark Channel Original Movie is perfect. Alison's first movie for the network, 'Second Chances' was one of the highest rated and we are so eager to work with her again as an actress and executive producer," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President of Programming, Crown Media Family Networks.
"Radio Hype" will be produced by Reynolds Entertainment. Kelley Reynolds and Alison Sweeney will be the Executive Producers.
