Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Up Across All Key Demos, Registering Double-Digit Year-Over-Year Increases

STUDIO CITY, CA - April 6, 2016 -- Jennie Garth ("Beverly Hills 90210"), Dan Payne ("All Yours") and Corbin Bernsen ("LA Law," "Psych") star in "Karen Kingsbury's A Time To Dance," an original drama based on Karen Kingsbury's best-selling novel, premiering on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Sunday, May 15 at 9pm ET/PT.

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is in the midst of a record breaking year, up across all key demos with double-digit year-over-year increases. The Hallmark Movies & Mysteries premiere of "Karen Kingsbury's The Bridge Part 2" on Sunday, March 20 became the highest-rated and most-watched program in network history, averaging a 1.8 HH rating and 1.4 million total viewers.

The film tells the story of Abby (Garth) and John (Payne) Reynolds, a married couple who have been together since their days as high school sweethearts - when John was a football hero and Abby dreamed of becoming a writer. Now in their forties, Abby is a restaurant critic for a local newspaper and John is a football coach at their son's high school. Though their seemingly perfect marriage is the envy of their peers, the truth is that they have fallen out of love, and plan to announce their impending divorce during their daughter Nicole's upcoming college break. But John and Abby's plan takes a turn when an elated Nicole surprises them with an announcement that she has gotten engaged. Not wanting to put a damper on Nicole's cherished event, John and Abby agree to wait until after her wedding to tell her about their divorce. With the clock ticking and John and Abby helping Nicole prepare for her wedding day, they may have one last chance to again find their love. Bernsen portrays Abby's father, Pops Chapman, a retired football coach who senses that his daughter's marriage is on the rocks, and is determined to help save their relationship.
