LORI LOUGHLIN SET TO STAR IN GREAT AMERICAN FAMILY ORIGINAL MOVIE FALL INTO WINTER
Romantic Comedy Marks Loughlin’s First for Network
NEW YORK, NY – September 22, 2022 – Great American Family today announced Lori Loughlin (When Hope Calls, When Calls the Heart) is set to star in Fall Into Winter, which premieres in January, 2023 as part of the network’s annual winter programming event. The film, Loughlin’s first romantic comedy for Great American Family, follows her successful reprisal of the role of Abigail Stanton in When Hope Calls Christmas last holiday season. Fall Into Winter begins production October 23.
“Lori is a genre-defining star that I have had the honor to call a close friend and collaborator for more than 15 years,” said Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Great American Media. “We have a shared vision for creating meaningful and memorable movies that resonate with our passionate fans, and I look forward to welcoming her back to Great American Family to anchor our 2023 winter programming slate.”
In Fall Into Winter, Keely (Loughlin) is aghast when her brother sells his half of their family-owned, upscale candy shop to his best friend from high school (and her nemesis, Brooks) forcing a sudden urgency to find connection and common ground. Keely has been hurt before; change is her new nemesis. Brooks’ past is a mirror of Keely’s. He, too, has a fortress around his heart. Fate brings the pair together. Might it also offer new beginnings?
Fall Into Winter is executive produced by Brad Krevoy and Susie Belzberg Krevoy.
David Anselmo produces for HP Into Winter Productions, Inc. Fall Into Winter is written by Cara J. Russell.
