Hallmark Movie Updates! White Hot, A Time to Dance, Hearts of Spring, and More!!!

There has been a lot of Hallmark movie news floating around, lately... so I thought I would share some of the latest updates...

Karen Kingsbury's Book
A Time to Dance
Karen Kingsbury’s A Time To Dance:

News has finally been released on the Karen Kingsbury book, A Time to Dance, becoming a Hallmark movie. We first learned the possibility of this happening in September of 2014! I shared the press release, here.

According to Deadline.com, "pre-production is underway for the movie adaptation of Karen Kingsbury’s A Time To Dance, the first novel in her Timeless Love series, scheduled to premiere this year (2016!)."

I'm not certain which Hallmark station, as of yet, they will air this on.

Karen Kingsbury’s book A Time To Dance is available through Paperback, Hardcover, Audible Audio Edition, and Kindle.

White Hot:

The Movie White Hot (based on the book by Sandra Brown) will star:
John Schneider (Come Dance at my Wedding) as Huff Hoyle,
Shenae Grimes-Beech (Christmas Incorporated) as Sayre Hoyle,
Sean Faris (Christmas with Holly) as Beck Merchant -
and Jeremy Guilbaut (My Boyfriends' Dogs) as Chris Hoyle
on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries - premiering April 17, 2016!

Storyline via whatsfilming.ca: "After spending 10 years away from Destiny, the main character, Sayre, returns to look into the suspicious death of a family member. Sayre must overcome many obstacles along the way including a history of tension between her and her corrupt father that is reignited and her feelings for the lawyer who is investigating the crime."

Please Note: From what some of you have shared with me, I know you are surprised to see this story come to Hallmark. I have not read this book - so I cannot comment on it, but it is my hope Hallmark will keep to it's usual moral standard. If I hear anything different, I will be sure to let you know!

Mommy Bloggers - NEWLY NAMED: Hearts of Spring

Some details on the upcoming Hallmark movie Mommy Bloggers have also been released via whatsfilming.ca: "The film features Vancouver’s own Michael Shanks (Saving Hope, Stargate SG-1) and Carrie Genzel (Watchmen, Jennifer’s Body). Real life mother/daughter combination of Lisa Whelchel (The Facts of Life, For Better or For Worse) and Clancy Cauble will be portraying a mother/daughter relationship in the movie as well."

UPDATE: According to Hallmark's web-site:
http://www.hallmarkchannel.com/hearts-of-spring - it looks like this Lisa Whelchel Movie has been re-named Hearts of Spring and it is scheduled to air April 9, 2016 at 9pm/8c.!

Actor Dylan Neal (Cedar Cove, Gourmet Detective) has confirmed via Twitter, that he and Brooke Burns will be starring in Gourmet Detective: Death Al Dente, which is currently in pre-production and will be coming up later this year on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries!

This will be the third mystery movie in this series!

Garage Sale Mystery: A Novel Murder:

We knew another movie in this mystery series was coming, but now we also know since Actress Lori Loughlin (Full House, When Calls the Heart, Northpole: Open for Christmas, Fuller House, etc...) has shared via Twitter... they are in the midst of filming it: Garage Sale Mystery: A Novel Murder!

Lori also shared a couple on-set pics, via twitter:

Lots of Wonderful Movies, Mysteries, & Adventures are Coming around the bend for Hallmark, and for all of you, like me, who love Christmas any time of the year, it will be wonderful to have Part 2 of Karen Kingsbury's The Bridge in March... Click here for more details!

Until the next Update...
I hope you enjoy your next movie night
and you can say...
"It's a Wonderful Movie!"


  1. Wow!! I'm so excited for Hallmark churning out all these great looking future films. Now, please, please give us weekday, evening movies!! You know your ratings would go "through the roof"!! Thanks, Net, so much to look forward to...

  2. Yay! Glad to see some favorite/familiar faces in White Hot. Always did like Sean especially in Christmas with Holly.

  3. Cool! So great seeing these new movies.


  4. Wonderful to hear that Hallmark is producing so much original content for their Movies & Mysteries channel! Great news!

  5. Great Job on your blog!! Keep up the great work!

  6. Thanks for all the great updates, Net! Your blog is my only daily for-fun viewing habit.

  7. I was just thinking how fun it is to see so many stars from shows I grew up watching with Lisa Whelchel first and foremost as the beautiful Blair Warner from Facts of Life, Ted McGinley from Happy Days, Lori Loughlin AKA Aunt Becky from Full House, Dylan Neal from Dawson's Creek, and then the BIG ONE - John Schneider from Dukes of Hazard!!! Seriously good picks Hallmark! Everyone still looks great! Not only do I love Hallmark movies which are notoriously good, but they draw me in with all these fantastic actors! I am more than excited for what's ahead for Hallmark. Thanks for this recent update! You made my day!

  8. I'm guessing the "Mommy Bloggers" is their Mother's Day movie this year. They usually are pretty good, and one of the holiday's, other than Christmas, that they theme their films very well towards.

  9. Net, I just saw a commercial on Hallmark channel's website about the new lineup for their television shows. Apparently, "Chesapeake Shores" is going to be a t.v. series that will premiere on July 17th.

  10. Once again UP Entertainment had "Love Finds You In Valentine" It was wonderful and went along with all the other "Love Finds You" movies. I would like to know if it is available on DVD or BluRay. Also "Unleashing Mr. Darcy." Thank you so much for all your great help and keeping us informed.

  11. I'm not seeing White Hot on Channel 312 for April 17th. I searched for it also with no luck.

    1. White Hot will only be premiering on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel. You must have the HD Channels to see it. I'm assuming you have DirecTV since you said the channel number is 312. Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is a different station, channel 565. Hope you have it, too!
