HALLMARK TV'S HOLIDAY CELEBRATION IN A LEAGUE OF ITS OWN TELEVISION'S MOST CELEBRATED, TOP-RATED CHRISTMAS PROGRAM EVENT, 'COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS,' SPECIAL 10th ANNIVERSARY EDITION, BEGINS OCTOBER 25

HALLMARK MOVIES & MYSTERIES HEARTWARMING 'MIRACLES OF CHRISTMAS' PREMIERES 16 NEW ORIGINAL HOLIDAY FILMS ON ALL NEW NIGHTS 40 NEW, ORIGINAL CHRISTMAS MOVIE PREMIERES ON BOTH NETWORKS IN 2019

STUDIO CITY, CA - Wednesday, September 4, 2019 - Call it secret sauce. Each batch of holiday goodness individually, impeccably made. The mammoth success of Hallmark on TV's inviting Christmas programming, well, that is no longer a secret. Carefully crafted through the lens of the parent company's 110-year-old brand of care enough, emotional connections, and celebrating life's special moments, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries' original holiday movies are the industry's indisputable leader. The uniqueness, quality, brand, emotion, and star power cannot be matched. 85+ million viewers watch holiday programming on Hallmark's networks and Hallmark Channel ranks as #1 out of all networks - cable and broadcast - consistently in Q4. Hallmark's two flagship linear channels will premiere 40 new, original Christmas movies in 2019 with the commitment -- and differentiator - that every World Premiere will be a one-of-a-kind holiday gift for viewers.

Beginning October 25, Hallmark Channel salutes 10 remarkable years of COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS, the #-1 rated program event on television. Holiday-themed movies had gone out of vogue and networks stopped making them until Hallmark Channel brought the genre back to television in 2009. COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS is "must-see TV" for tens of millions of Christmas enthusiasts, and Hallmark Channel is the holiday gold standard other networks seek to emulate. The 10th Anniversary edition of Hallmark Channel's COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS will showcase big stars from all areas of show business: Broadway, film, music, and television for the 2019 World Premiere of 24 all-new, original holiday movies.

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, the #2 network in all of cable throughout holiday, kicks off its heartwarming "Miracles of Christmas" program event on October 25, offering the biggest slate of holiday-themed original movies the network has ever produced. In 2019, 16 all-new, original movies celebrate beloved traditions that bring people together: acts of altruism, heroism, heart, and inspiration are central to the new films that make up Hallmark Movies & Mysteries 2019 Christmas event. Hallmark Movies & Mysteries also reveals it will extend the Hallmark on TV holiday footprint by offering its 2019 Christmas films on all-new nights - World Premieres on Thursday and Friday throughout the season.

"Hallmark holds a special place in the hearts of all who love holiday celebrations, and no one does Christmas like Hallmark," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming & Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks.

"A Christmas movie is so much more than carols, tinsel, and lights. A Hallmark holiday movie is filled with Christmas, and joy, romance, emotion, sweetness, and tradition. What we built in holiday entertainment on television 10 years ago has grown into a cultural phenomenon beloved by tens of millions of people and it cannot be copied," Vicary concluded.

Viewers will see behind the scenes sneak peeks of new holiday originals during the primetime movie on September 7 and are encouraged to follow all Hallmark World Premieres by downloading the Hallmark Movie Check List App available for iOS and Android.

The 2019 holiday celebration on Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries includes:
