CROWN MEDIA FAMILY NETWORKS INKS MULTI-PICTURE DEAL WITH VIEWER FAVORITE HOLLY ROBINSON PEETE

STUDIO CITY, CA - March 24, 2022 - Crown Media Family Networks and Holly Robinson Peete ("Our Christmas Journey," "21 Jump Street") have signed a multi-picture deal, including exclusivity on holiday movies, the company announced today.

"Since her first movie with Hallmark in 2015, Holly's intelligence, vulnerability and tireless advocacy work have made her one of our networks' most beloved talents, on screen and off," remarked Lisa Hamilton Daly, Executive Vice President, Programming, Crown Media Family Networks. "We are so happy to continue making movies with Holly and to be her official home for original television movies at Christmas."

"Hallmark is one of the most unique and warm destinations on television, especially at Christmas, and I am so proud of the projects that we have done together these past years," Robinson Peete said. "I am thrilled to continue my work with them to collaborate on creating joyful and heartfelt movies, while highlighting special stories in which viewers can truly see themselves."

Most recently, Robinson Peete starred in and executive produced "Our Christmas Journey" for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, which premiered in 2021 during the network's "Miracles of Christmas" programming event and dealt with a cause near and dear to her heart - autism. She has starred in six installments of "Morning Show Mysteries" for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as well as in the network's holiday favorites for which she also executive produced. Additionally for the network, she starred in "The Christmas Doctor" and "A Family Christmas Gift," opposite Patti LaBelle. On Hallmark Channel she starred in all four "Christmas in Evergreen" movies as the town's beloved mayor, Michelle. For two seasons, Robinson Peete invited viewers into her home on the reality series, "Meet the Peetes."

Robinson Peete's career first took off with her breakout role as Officer Judy Hoffs on "21 Jump Street" - a character she later reprised in the movie adaptation. She continued to star in popular television series, including "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper" and "For Your Love." Additionally, she was seen recurring on the hit drama series "Chicago Fire," as well as the comedy series, "American Housewife" and "Mike & Molly." Robinson Peete's successful television career places her as one of only a handful of actresses to star in four shows in syndication. She also successfully launched the show "The Talk" as one of the original co-hosts. Speaking to her enduring presence on television, the Hollywood Walk of Fame will honor Robinson Peete with a star later this year.

In 1999, Robinson Peete and her husband, former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete, formed the HollyRod Foundation, inspired by her father Matt Robinson - the original Gordon on "Sesame Street" - and his courageous battle with Parkinson's disease, with the mission to help improve the quality of life of people with Parkinson's. Shortly thereafter, inspired by their eldest son's autism diagnosis, HollyRod Foundation's mission expanded to provide support and resources to those affected by autism. Through the HollyRod Foundation and her family's personal experiences, Robinson Peete has become one of the most trusted advocates for consistent and reliable education, outreach and support for both Parkinson's and autism.

Robinson Peete is repped by Artists First; Agency for the Performing Arts; and Kim Stenton and Jessica Boardman of Myman Greenspan Fineman Fox Rosenberg & Light LLP.
