REBECCA ROMIJN AND JERRY O'CONNELL STAR IN HALLMARK HALL OF FAME FILM, "LOVE LOCKS," A CROWN MEDIA PRODUCTIONS ORIGINAL PREMIERING EXCLUSIVELY ON HALLMARK CHANNEL, JANUARY 28

Life is the Art of Drawing Without An Eraser

STUDIO CITY, CA - December 21, 2016 - Hallmark Channel announces the newest original film in the revered Hallmark Hall of Fame franchise, "Love Locks," starring Rebecca Romijn ("The Librarians," "Skin Wars") and Jerry O'Connell ("Scream Queens," "Mistresses") is set to premiere exclusively on Hallmark Channel, Saturday, January 28 (9 p.m. ET/PT) as part of the network's highly-rated COUNTDOWN TO VALENTINE'S programming event. Crown Media Productions shot "Love Locks" on location in Paris, France, and Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

In "Love Locks," Lindsay Phillips (Romijn) and her teenaged daughter Alexa travel to Paris so the girl can enroll in art school with the same teacher Lindsay had as a young woman. Lindsay is a gifted painter, however, after a broken promise with a boyfriend, she ends up back in New York, not as an artist, but as the editor of an art magazine. Lindsay cannot imagine that her journey to Paris with her daughter will result in an unplanned encounter with her former boyfriend, Jack Burrows (O'Connell), a hotelier, or that the pair will reignite their passionate love affair.

" 'Love Locks' is a film about love that won't let go no matter how much time has passed, and it will be a great addition to the revered Hallmark Hall of Fame franchise," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Publicity, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

"Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell starring in a beautifully written love story set against the backdrop of the world's most romantic city sounds like a picture perfect recipe for great movie-making," Vicary concluded.

The custom of attaching padlocks onto famous bridges began around 2008 and is traced to Italian author Frederico Moccia's novel, I Want You, which features couples writing their names on padlocks and attaching those to Rome's Milvian bridge and then throwing the key into the river as a sign of eternal love. While the phenomenon originated in Italy, the Pont Des Arts bridge in Paris became the defacto worldwide landmark for millions of lovers yearning to display eternal love. Here where the bridge connects the Left Bank and the Right Bank over the river Seine, couples have placed multiple millions of pounds of love locks, enough to cause damage to the structure which dates back to the time of Napoleon. The City of Paris, while reclaiming the integrity of its bridges, has gone to great lengths not to destroy the locks, but to repurpose them into one-of-kind metal sculptures along the passerelles and river.

"Love Locks" is directed by Martin Wood from an original screenplay written by Teena Booth, with revisions from David Golden, John Tinker, and Tippi & Neal Dobrofsky. Executive Producer is Jim Head. Producer is Gilles Perreault.
