AN AUTUMN ROMANCE
Starring Jessica Lowndes & Chad Michael Murray

In "An Autumn Romance," when Seattle-based librarian Taylor Harris (Lowndes) suddenly loses her job, she travels to Montana to visit her brother Craig (Andres) and his wife Christine (Ogunsuyi) and quickly finds herself immersed in her brother's effort to save the Graff Hotel, which has been purchased by tech tycoon Joel Sheenan (Murray) and his associate, Ray Dixon (Brown). The town of Forest Ridge, Montana is split on Joel's decision to turn the once quaint hotel into an upscale property for tourists. To protect the hotel's charm and her brother's place of employment, Taylor goes on a search to find a significant historical event that will qualify the hotel for landmark status and prevent the City Council from issuing permits for its renovation. With the clock ticking, Taylor seizes on a photograph that has the potential to verify the property's historical value while also providing an invaluable piece of personal history to the hotel's new owner. Executive Producers of "An Autumn Romance" are Brad Krevoy, Chad Michael Murray, Jessica Lowndes, James Moorhouse, Susie Belzberg Krevoy, Bradley Walsh, Amanda Phillips, Amy Krell, and Eric Jarboe. Producer is David Anselmo. Associate Producers Julie Currie, Charles H. Cohen, and David Golden. Supervising Producers are W. Michael Beard, Allan Fung, and David Lowe. Bradley Walsh directs from Emily Golden's adaptation of Jane Porter's novel, The Tycoon's Kiss.

Premieres: Saturday, October 23, 2021 at 8pm ET/PT

Reviews:

🍁"That GAC one was (originally) called Tycoon's Kiss and I saw some of it on YouTube. It was family friendly from what I recall." Misty

🍁"Autumn Romance (aka Colors of Love) was good! It wasn’t too much of a fall movie, but the leaves were actually real! At least in the scene where she drives her car off the road. I especially enjoyed it because I am a history buff and that part of the story line was so different and intriguing. The perfect twist to an otherwise normal movie plot. The mixed couple was a bit strange, but I’d give this family-friendly movie a watch!" ~Anonymous

🍁"I watched Autumn Romance Saturday. Really felt and looked like fall. Really liked story line and characters had a good chemistry. Family friendly for sure. Especially liked the surprise at the end. Had the feeling of some of the older HMM Christmas endings. Just curious about historical reference as to actual event or just creative license." ~JoCo

🍁"An Autumn Romance was fun to watch. Loved seeing Jessica Lowndes and Chad Michael Murray together. I do love history along with surprises. This movie proved to be so much more interesting than I expected. I am looking forward to their Christmas movie! The mixed couple appeared to be added for no apparent reason, plus there isn't a lot of scenes with the two of them." ~kitkat

🍁"An Autumn Romance was a great start to original movies on GAC Family. I enjoyed the history part and the family relationships. Chad Michael Murray is definitely becoming a family movie staple." ~ Jennifer R

🍁"Autumn Romance" was family friendly and quite enjoyable in spite of the done-to-death plot. Chad Michael Murray made it worth watching. He was excellent, as always, and though Jessica Lowndes isn't one of my favorites, I felt they had good chemistry. The movie kept me engaged throughout." ~Amy Lama

🍁"I saw "Autumn Romance" and I really enjoyed it. The book that it is based off of, however, is not family friendly. I read a portion of it and then stopped. "Autumn Romance" has a more wholesome feel and while similar to the original book, it is quite different. Of the two family friendly movies I saw this weekend, I'd probably watch "Autumn Romance" a second time." ~Mary

🍁"An Autumn Romance is a festively fun, family-friendly fall-themed movie, an ideal movie launch for GAC Family! The setting was a beautiful farm - with all the lovely, rich fall colors changing their hue in the background. And if the beauty of nature wasn't enough, the entire town and the Harvest Ball were decorated with lots of faux leaf garland and autumn decor. Jessica Lowndes and Chad Michael Murray, once again (they also star together in Lifetime's "Too Close for Christmas"), have an excellent on screen connection, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching their cute glances and playful banter back and forth, as they disagreed over the tearing down of the old, Graff hotel. It's a wonderful story, with a delightful ending. This is one of those movies I look forward to watching over and over again!" ~Net

🍁"We really liked An Autumn Romance, the story and characters were all really good, like a lot of others here, I enjoyed the history aspect. We will definitely watch again next fall. -brother in Christ




MUCH ADO ABOUT CHRISTMAS
Starring Susie Abromeit & Torrance Coombs

In "Much Ado About Christmas," Haley is beloved in her community of Winterstone for acts of kindness ranging from managing The Hope Chest to directing the children's choir. Haley is also the daughter of one of Winterstone's wealthiest residents Leona Lloyd. Despite Haley's down-to-earth demeanor, she is financially set as Leona's only heir – information she fails to share with new love interest Claud, an artsy, hopeless romantic. Haley introduces herself to Claud as "Haley Logan," raised by a single, struggling mom, a small fib that becomes a complication when Claud and his team present an ad pitch to Leona that includes a photo of Claud's new girlfriend…Haley! Secrets are revealed and relationships ruffled, but Christmas is coming and miracles do happen. "Much Ado About Christmas" is executive produced by Brad Krevoy, Eric Jarboe, Amy Krell, Lorenzo Nardini, Amanda Phillips, Brad Southwick, and Jimmy Townsend. The film is directed by Michael Damian from an original teleplay by Michael Damian. Producer is Janeen Damian.

CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE
Starring Dewshane Williams, Rukiya Bernard & Tom Pickett

There is only one hitch. No matter how many properties in Pine Valley Nia shows Julian, he keeps coming back to the one resort that isn't for sale…the one belonging to Nia's widower dad, Patrick (Pickett). Patrick would like to sell the property and retire. It's Nia who cannot let go of memories of an idyllic time in life when her mom was still alive and very much a part of the resort. Julian realizes Nia's reluctance to sell the property, but it may not matter. Julian's impatient boss has come to Pine Valley intent on getting the deal done before Christmas. At risk of losing his job, Julian comes up with a magical plan for saving Nia's family's resort.

    1. That movie is filming this month - so I think they are waiting to give premiere details later on.

      In the press release above it says:
      "Additional holiday movies and specials will be announced at a later date."

      I hope we will see several more new movie announcements for this holiday season! :)

  4. So it does look like GAC is going to offer some tough competition for Hallmark!

    An Autumn Romance with Jessica and Chad is a new title for Colors Of Love which we were hoping would appear on TV at some stage - I think it was shown in some cinemas.

    I really liked it and it's Family Friendly although I would expect all of GAC's output will be.

    Looking forward to seeing Torrance Coombs again - I know I was a minority but there was something about his movie with Cindy Busby (Romance In The Air) which I really loved.

    We've rewatched it several times - Florence

  5. Does this mean all of their movies are completely family-friendly?! That would be awesome! I am looking forward to Christmas Time is Here. The stars are so funny!

  6. This is such exciting news. There are people online trying to bad mouth this network already, saying it is owned by OANN who supported the "insurrection" and other garbage. I am so happy for this channel and will watch all these movies. I am so happy to see Bill Abbott back, and do hope he gives other channels a run for their money. I believe he can.

    So excited to see Susie Abromeit back, the Michael Damien movie too. So happy to see big names on this network like Jen Lilley and CMM, this is just such wonderful news and hope we get a lot more from GAC :)

  8. If I can get this channel, I will happy to support it. Hoping everything goes well with GAC, then our prayers will be answered for a family friendly viewing channel once again.

    Chad Michael Murray and Jessica Lowndes should be great together. I am looking forward to watching all of these.

    A big thank you Net for this news.

  11. Wonderful news that makes me so happy! I hope I can get these channels on Spectrum or stream. We would definitely pay (though not extreme) to have a service with family friendly viewing. GAc sounds like a prayer answered.

  14. "Open by Christmas" with Allison Sweeney has a gay couple in it for a couple minutes. The gay guy introduces his fiancΓ©. I am so sad! Not family friendly.
