CROWN MEDIA NETWORKS PRESENTS ITS ORIGINAL PROGRAMS TO ADVERTISERS INCLUDING EIGHT ORIGINAL MOVIES TO PREMIERE ON HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL IN 2011-2012

HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL IS THE MOST DESIRED EMERGING TV NETWORK CABLE OPERATORS WANT TO ADD IN 2011*

New York, NY - Crown Media Networks, part of the television portfolio that includes Hallmark Movie Channel and Hallmark Channel, today presented its cable television networks' 2011-2012 slate of Original Programs. Highlights of Crown Media Networks' presentation included the announcement of eight new Hallmark Movie Channel Original Premiere films for Q4 2011-Q3 2012. The announcement was made by Michelle Vicary, EVP, Programming for Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel.

"We are incredibly excited by the growth and ratings success of Hallmark Movie Channel, the emerging cable television network most cable operators want to add in 2011. Hallmark Movie Channel had the 4th highest-rated ad-supported cable movie of the day for January 29 with the World Premiere of the Luke Perry-starring 'Goodnight for Justice.' That film, directed by Jason Priestley, proved that Hallmark Movie Channel competes favorably now with the most distributed networks in cable television. I am pleased to announce that the network is doubling the number of Original Movies for Hallmark Movie Channel, including a sequel to 'Goodnight for Justice', which will premiere in January, 2012, along with seven other star-studded, big picture movies," Ms. Vicary concluded.

Hallmark Movie Channel Original Premiere films include:

FINDING A FAMILY, a Hallmark Movie Channel Original Premiere, Saturday, October 15 (8 p.m. ET/PT, 7C), starring Kim Delaney ("Army Wives") and produced by the Emmy(R) Award winning team behind "Homeless to Harvard" in the film that is based on a heartrending, true story. Alex Chivescu is a talented, intelligent teenager who enters foster care after his mother is critically injured in a car accident. With dreams of a Harvard education, Alex is at a loss when budget constraints keep him from attending an academic high school outside his orphanage's school district. Determined to succeed, Alex takes it upon himself to find an adoptive family so he can graduate with honors and fulfill his Harvard dreams.

GOODNIGHT FOR JUSTICE 2, a Hallmark Movie Channel Original Premiere, Saturday, January X, reunites executive producer and star Luke Perry with director/friend Jason Priestley in a sequel to Hallmark Movie Channel's highest-rated film of all-time. Judge Goodnight crosses paths with a stagecoach under attack and comes to the rescue of its passengers. On board, a Pinkerton detective is found dead, but the beautiful woman in his company survives. Is this woman a prisoner? Or was she being protected by the detective as she claims? The journey will take the pair on a riverboat gambling adventure where Goodnight discovers her true identity.

AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, a Hallmark Movie Channel Original Premiere, Saturday, April X, about Rosie Meyers, a housewife from Long Island's tony gated community of Shore Haven, who in the midst of planning her 25th wedding anniversary celebration makes the gruesome discovery that her husband has been murdered in the kitchen of their home. The 40-something suburban schoolteacher fears - quite accurately - that she will become the odds-on favorite as prime suspect. Rosie becomes a fugitive from justice to avoid what surely will be a trial in a kangaroo court. [IN DEVELOPMENT]

LOVE'S PLAYING OUR SONG, a Hallmark Movie Channel Original Premiere, Saturday, September X. A shy, but handsome photographer who suffered from ugly duckling syndrome after a torturous high school experience hires a popular girl he knew from school to be his dating coach.

As attraction blooms between student and teacher, each realizes they must correct mistakes made in the past if they are to hold onto true love this time around. [IN DEVELOPMENT]
