HALLMARK CHANNEL AND HALLMARK MOVIES & MYSTERIES INCREASE PRODUCTION ON ORIGINAL SPECIALS

BEVERLY HILLS, CA - July 26, 2018 - Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will increase production on original specials in the coming months that will give viewers a glimpse at new, original movie premieres, celebrate seasons and further the company's commitment to raising awareness for pet rescue and the benefits of having pets in our lives. The announcement was made today as part of Crown Media Family Networks' bi-annual Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour.

"We're pleased to offer our viewers a variety of seasonal and pet-themed specials that complement our original movies and primetime series for a riveting viewing experience," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. "From animal advocacy to celebrating the seasons and life's treasured moments, these original specials are sure to resonate with viewers."

The robust slate of original specials includes previews for seasonal franchises, hosted by fan-favorite talent, giving the audience an exclusive sneak-peek at upcoming original movie premieres for programming events such as Fall Harvest, Countdown to Christmas and more. As the holiday season is in full swing, viewers will be treated to two all-new, one-hour specials to help make their homes merry and bright: "Christmas in America," from Executive Producer Candace Cameron Bure, which highlights some of the funny, outlandish and heartwarming Christmas traditions around the country and "Amy Grant's Tennessee Christmas" (wt), an inspiring look at Christmas in her home state featuring musical performances and personal, holiday memories. Additionally, Hallmark Channel affirms its commitment to highlighting the joys of pet rescue and celebrating the triumphs of our four-legged friends with the "American Humane Hero Dog Awards," "Kitten Bowl VI," "2019 American Rescue Dog Show" which expands to a two-night event, and the first-ever "Cat Bowl," a one-hour special featuring adult cats from past "Kitten Bowls" as they come together for an all-star game.

On Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, host Lori Loughlin will give sleuthers a preview of the second annual Garage Sale Mysteries month in August and audiences are sure to get into the holiday spirit early with the Miracles of Christmas preview.
