In today’s Girls Gone Hallmark super bonus episode, Megan and Wendy welcome screenwriter Julie Sherman Wolfe to the podcast! Julie has an extensive resume writing for television, including some of our favorite 2020-21 Hallmark movies like Taking a Shot at Love and One Royal Holiday. She also clears up some of our biggest questions, talks about her life in Avon, Connecticut and what we can expect next from her on Hallmark Channel. Email the show at email@example.com.
Who is Julie Sherman Wolfe?
Julie Sherman Wolfe is an award winning screenwriter who spent 25 years in Los Angeles writing for sitcoms like Everybody Loves Raymond and full-length feature films for Disney and Paramount. She won a Writers Guild Award for her 2010 Avalon High script.
She is a prolific Hallmark Channel Movie writer including fan favorites like Birthday Wish and Wedding Every Weekend. Julie’s recent work includes our favorite movie from the 2021 New Year, New Movies line up Taking a Shot at Love.
Julie currently lives with her husband and son in Avon, Connecticut. Fun fact: Avon, CT is the town featured in Taking a Shot at Love where Jenna (Alexa PenaVega) lives and helps Ryan (Luke Macfarlane) rehab his hockey injury.
Her focus when writing any script is its voice. Specifically, the banter and tone of the dialogue and that is what really made Taking a Shot at Love our favorite of the New Year, New Movies bunch.
Are There Any Easter Eggs in Taking a Shot at Love?
Yes, there is an Easter egg in Taking a Shot at Love. Julie explained she named Avon’s winter festivities “Winterfest” as a nod to the Hallmark Channel’s brand of new winter movies. PLOT TWIST: Hallmark Channel refreshed their “Winterfest” lineup in 2021 to “New Year, New Movies.”
Spring Movies on Hallmark Channel
Right after our interview with Julie, it was reported that she will have a brand new movie debut on Saturday, April 17, 2021 as part of Hallmark Channel’s Spring Fling movie line up. Fans of Pretty Little Liars and Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before will be excited to see Janel Parrish star in Right in Front of Me.
