STUDIO CITY, CA - February 1, 2016 - Hallmark Movies & Mysteries announces four more movies in 2016 from the incomparable storyteller and Executive Producer Martha Williamson.

In "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: From the Heart," the beloved POstables Eric Mabius ("Ugly Betty"), Kristin Booth ("Orphan Black"), Crystal Lowe ("Smallville") and Geoff Gustafson ("Primeval: New World") discover a 200-year-old valentine that could change history, while their investigation of a damaged letter leads them to a public figure who could be brought down by its contents.
