Love is blooming!
Hallmark has set its spring schedule, rolling out a total of seven original films for the months of March and April. Hallmark Channel will premiere five, while Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will debut two, and only ET can exclusively reveal the networks’ full lineup and details for every upcoming movie ahead of the network’s Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday.
Hallmark Channel’s annual “Spring Fling” slate kicks off March 20 with five straight Saturdays of original movie premieres — the first being Chasing Waterfalls, starring Cindy Busby and Christopher Russell. Italia Ricci and Ryan Paevey lead Breakup Bootcamp, which airs the weekend after, while Taylor Cole’s nuptials-themed One Perfect Wedding opens the month of April.
Downton Abbey’s Allen Leech makes his Hallmark debut in April 10’s As Luck Would Have It, opposite JoAnna Garcia Swisher, which was filmed on location in Ireland. Pretty Little Liars alum Janel Parrish, who made her debut with Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ Holly & Ivy in November, returns with Right in Front of Me to close out “Spring Fling.”
Starting Sunday, March 14, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries launches new installments for two of its popular franchises, Aurora Teegarden Mysteries with Candace Cameron Bure and Marilu Henner, and Mystery 101 with Jill Wagner and Kristoffer Polaha, the latter coming off the recent success of Wonder Woman 1984.
“We’re thrilled to offer viewers all-new mysteries featuring some of their favorite crime-solving characters in smart and exciting adventures,” Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President of Programming at Crown Media Family Networks, said in a statement. “Sleuthers can expect the thrilling cases they’ve come to love and there may also be a dash of romance along the way.”
