HALLMARK CHANNEL CREATES CUSTOMIZED, CO-BRANDED PSAs FOR AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY TO SUPPORT NETWORK'S ORIGINAL MOVIE "LIVING OUT LOUD"

Hallmark Channel has produced a series of customized public service announcements co-branded with the American Cancer Society, the nation's leading voluntary health organization, supporting the organization's sponsorship of the network's original movie "Living Out Loud," premiering Saturday, May 2 (9-11 p.m., ET/PT). The PSAs integrate scenes from the movie with information about the Society, its resources, and community events like Relay For Lifeďż˝, an inspiring event which brings communities together to celebrate the lives of those who have had cancer. They will air throughout the week of April 26.

"Living Out Loud" stars Gail O'Grady as a wife and mother battling breast cancer and coming to terms with her mortality. The theme of the movie dovetails with the American Cancer Society's newest branding campaign which has adopted the tagline: "The Official Sponsor Of Birthdays." The line is intended to communicate how the organization is saving lives and creating a world with more birthdays by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.

The network crafted a series of six PSAs for the American Cancer Society which will air on both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel to help drive viewer tune-in to "Living Out Loud" and build awareness of the Society's lifesaving mission.

In addition to the PSAs, Hallmark Channel has developed a microsite (www.hallmarkchannel.com/livingoutloud) to support the original movie, which features behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast and director, photos, downloads and a community message board.

This project marks yet another customized venture for an advertiser, the mission of Hallmark Channel's Sponsorship Solutions Unit.

"In this cluttered marketplace, it's imperative that we work with our sponsors to create customized solutions that meet their specific marketing needs and help them stand out from the crowd," stated Bill Abbott, Executive Vice President, Advertising Sales, Hallmark Channel. "Our Sponsorship Solutions Unit works hand-in-hand with advertisers to craft messages that seamlessly integrate the trusted brand of Hallmark with that of the advertiser. The result is a consumer-targeted message that delivers greater ROI for our clients."
