Time Change for Hallmark Hall of Fame movie "Love Takes Flight"

Instead of the usual Hallmark Saturday night movie time, this all new Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, "Love Takes Flight," will premiere at 9p.m. ET/PT /8C. See all the details in Hallmark's latest press release below...

Hallmark Press Release:



STUDIO CITY, CA – Monday, March 11, 2019 – Hallmark Channel announces the 263rd installment of the revered Hallmark Hall of Fame, “Love Takes Flight,” starring Nikki DeLoach (“Reunited At Christmas,” “Truly, Madly, Sweetly”) and Jeff Hephner (“Chicago Fire,” “Chicago Med”) will have its World Premiere on the network, Saturday, April 27 (9 p.m. ET/PT, 8C). Hallmark Hall of Fame, first broadcast in December 1951, is still the longest-running and most award-winning series in the history of television.

In “Love Takes Flight,” Dr. Lizzie Beauman (DeLoach) is a single mother and hospital administrator determined to attract enough world-class doctors and treatment options to make her hospital successful enough to build a wing for patients’ families to be able to stay together while healing. Lizzie’s five-year old daughter, Quinn, suffers from an insulin disorder and Lizzie knows the demands on working families who have a sick loved one to care for. Lizzie has spent years doing her best construction building walls around her own expectations: no fun and no spontaneity here as the best-lived lives are created through discipline and order. But all that changes when new EMS pilot Charley Allen (Hephner) comes into Lizzie and Quinn’s lives. Charley challenges the constrictions Lizzie places on herself, especially, her fear of flying. And Charley learns something from Lizzie about the patience it takes to nurture relationships, especially between Charley and his dad whose relationship has been strained since his mom passed away. The day comes when Charley and Lizzie must come together as a team, each performing at the highest skill level to save a transplant patient. In the process, Lizzie and Charley may be able to heal themselves and their loved ones.

“Love Takes Flight” is written by Eric Brooks. The film is directed by Steven R. Monroe. Executive Producers are Stan Spry and Eric Woods. Co-Executive Producer and UPM is Anthony Fankhauser. Lesley Demetriades produces for Seabound Productions LLC.

  1. Isn’t this 3rd movies for Mother’s Day?

    Love Takes Flight

    1. "Love Takes Flight" will be airing just before Mother's Day, and I'm sure they will be promoting Hallmark's Mother's Day cards during the commercial breaks, but this may not be an actual Mother's Day movie, per se.

  2. I noticed they seem to be moving the movies to 9 pm on the hallmark site, I am happy about that. When it got dark at 5:30, it was never a problem to catch the movie at 8 pm, but now that it stays light til after 8, and while it has been warm here in florida for a very long time, its warming up everywhere and its very hard to get inside to watch a movie at 8 pm.

    I would still like them to play the Sunday shows at 8 pm, cause sunday nights I try to wind down early so I can get up Monday am. But hopefully we are moving to 9pm premieres thru the summer.

    1. I suspect that is exactly why they are starting the movies at 9 p.m. now. They know that people are slowly transitioning into "summer mode" (which is funny, since spring barely just started), and it will be harder to get them in front of a TV at 8 p.m., when daylight hours are extended and more viewers are out of the house.

      Personally, I prefer the 8 p.m. premieres (despite the extended daylight and warm weather). One reason I don't watch a lot of the new mystery premieres on HMM is because of that 9 p.m. start time. Something about it just doesn't work for me, and I can't even really pinpoint why I don't like it.

      I think it would be a good idea to keep people in the habit of expecting a movie every Saturday at the same time, instead of changing the start time for a chunk of the year and then reverting back to the 8 p.m. schedule for the Countdown to Christmas and beyond.

      But... I understand why Hallmark is doing it this way, and it's not a huge deal to me. I'm just happy to have so many new movies to enjoy in 2019, all year long, whenever they start!

    2. Yes I see what you mean, I mean most people have a dvr or a way to record the movie so its no big deal when its on, I haven't done a live tweet in a while cause I haven't been able to watch live. Working all week, Saturdays are our best time to do what we need to do and then the walking and exercise gets pushed back since it stays light til after 8 pm. So most of the time I don't watch the Saturday movie til Sunday or later. And pretty soon it wont get dark til almost 9 pm so they cant really move the movies to later, so maybe it is better they just leave them at 8. I usually cant stay up to finish the movie if I start it at 9 or 10 so I just save it for Sunday.

  3. If 8pm/5pm will miss the movie if you’re at work or church
