HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL UNVEILS ITS Q4 2012 - Q3 2013 ORIGINAL MOVIE SLATE AT ANNUAL UPFRONT PRESENTATION TO ADVERTISERS

Slate Includes 9 New Original Movie Premieres

Hallmark Movie Channel unveiled a robust slate of Original Premiere films at the annual Upfront presentation to advertisers in New York City today. The number of Original Premiere films increases again this year to 9 as the network continues on its strategy to make Hallmark Movie Channel one of the more popular offerings in cable. The announcement was made today by Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel.

"Hallmark Movie Channel celebrates movies, all genres - mysteries, westerns, dramas, romances. It distinguishes itself from the product on Hallmark Channel which is all about seasons, holidays and special occasions," Ms. Vicary said.

"Hallmark Movie Channel Original films tell credible, authentic and emotional stories that the entire family can enjoy together, and I am pleased to announce an increase in the number of new HMC premieres every year for the foreseeable future," Ms. Vicary concluded.

The Q4 2012 - Q3 2013 Hallmark Movie Channel premiere schedule includes:
