Starting on July 1st, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will air their most loved Christmas films for a week and its sister channel will start their week-long marathon 9 days later on the 10th.
To get you even more into the Christmas spirit, they will be showing off this year’s Christmas Keepsakes Ornaments in between the movies.
Event though Santa Claus has 255 more nights of sleep, it is never too early to dream about the season of giving and getting. Plus, who doesn’t love a sweet as candy cane holiday movie from Hallmark? I know I look forward to them every year, no matter when they air!
Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn have a Hollywood romance we all wish we could have, so it makes sense that the couple will star in Hallmark Channel movie that is part of the network’s Countdown to Valentine’s Day programming event!
Love Locks premieres on January 28th and was partially filmed in Paris, former home of the Love Locks. Which brings us to our story. When Lindsay Phillips (Romijn) was a young woman, she studied art in Paris. She met a man, fell in love, but something went wrong and she moved back to NYC to become an editor of an art magazine instead of an artist.
Years later, she is returning to Paris with her teenage daughter so that Alexa (Jocelyn Hudon) can study with the same art teacher she had back then. That won’t be the only blast from her past because she will also run into her ex Jack Burrows (O’Connell) and they will reignite their love affair in the city of love. Proving that true love can last the test of time.
Lock the date in your calendar because this is telemovie you are not going to want to miss.

You won’t be able to see Bob Saget’s Halloween costume this yea because it will, thankfully, be covered by his pants. That’s because his penis is going as a bigger penis. Which we can all imagine how big or, should I say, small the original one is. I know what I am thinking, what are you thinking?
Chesapeake Shores debuts at 9p on Hallmark Channel and it is a touching series that we have been longing for. We just did not know it until now.
Abby (Meghan Ory) is a very busy top financial analyst in a prestigious NYC investment firm. She is also divorced with twin daughters who are 8 years old. Because of her job, she does not have a lot of time for them and their nanny is raising them.
Then one day her younger sister Jess (Laci J. Mailey) calls her and begs her big sis to come back home to Chesapeake Shores. After much convincing, she packs up the girls for a long weekend trip to her beautiful home near Baltimore.
As soon as she gets her home her grandmother (Diane Ladd), who helped to raise her, greets at her the house. Then Jess comes out, but does not tell her big sister why she needed her to come home immediately. Then next day Abby finds out Jess bought a house to turn into a Bed & Breakfast, but it is falling apart and she is behind on payments. Jess asks her to help convince to the bank to give her an extension.
When they get to the bank, Abby sees her ex-fiancé’, who she left and never told him she was leaving for NYC. Even though Trace (Jesse Metcalfe) and her have their tension over that, you can tell that they still have a connection.
Another person Abby needs to connect to is her workaholic father (Treat Williams), who came back from a job in Boston to see his oldest daughter. The two of them love each other, but Abby still blames for causing her mom to leave and he was barely there when she was growing up.
Even though, she is getting close to her family again, it is time for her to go back to the city. Plans change when her grandmother suddenly collapses, and she decides to extend her trip.
The longer she stays in Chesapeake Shores, the more she thinks it would be better place for her to be now. Especially, since her nanny suddenly quit and ex-husband wants custody of the twins. Along with the fact that the head of the Baltimore office, offers her a job if she wants it.
Will she stay at her home with her family or go back to NYC to her job? You can assume from the title, she stays. Therefore, the series will follow her adjusting to being back home with her grandmother, her father, her two sisters and two brothers, her ex-boyfriend and most importantly her girls.
If the series is anything like the two-hour premiere tonight, I cannot wait to see the rest of the episodes. Chesapeake Shores is a show that is all heart, something that seems to missing from so many television shows these days. We all need a break from reality for a show that is all about the closeness of family being a family. Along with a cast that you can tell genuinely like each other, you would almost think that they are related. Something I think comes with working with Treat Williams, he brings a compassion that very few actors possess as much as he does. In addition, having Diane Ladd as the matriarch is the glue that keeps the whole cast connected.
