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.

BWW Review: BIG NIGHT Starts Humorously but Changes Direction After a Senseless Attac Photo BWW Review: BIG NIGHT Starts Humorously but Changes Direction After a Senseless Attack
by Shari Barrett - Sep 18, 2017

Master satirist Paul Rudnick blends a deep humanity with a honed sense of hilarity in this powerful and funny play about family and fame, the personal and the political, and the drive to stand up and speak out. But it is also one that promotes a very progressive political stance on human rights, especially within the gay community, with much of the dialogue presented as if they are soapbox speeches meant to sway the listener to take action. But given our current political circumstances, there is nothing wrong with encouraging people to take a stand and speak out to make the world a better and more equal place for everyone.
