Hallmark News and Notes
- Hallmark Publishing closed operations unexpectedly in October 2022. This is relevant because “Sweeter Than Chocolate” by Lizzie Shane was published by Hallmark Publishing and later developed into a movie for the channel.
- Five new movies were announced for March. Films include Hallmark favorites like Kimberley Sustad, Kristoffer Polaha, Tyler Hynes, and Paul Campbell.
- Last week’s “Love in Glacier National: A National Park Romance” ranked 13/150 in cable telecasts for Saturday, January 28. It pulled in 2.0 million live viewers.
