Lacey Chabert (Crossword Mysteries) has signed a new deal with Hallmark parent company Crown Media.
Chabert most recently appeared in The Wedding Veil trilogy alongside Allison Sweeney (Chronicle Mysteries) and Autumn Reeser (The 4400). That project proved to be a big hit for the network helping solidify Chabert as one of the go to talents. Chabert developed the movie series which went on to become the second most watched non-Christmas title at Hallmark. In her time working with Hallmark Lacey has done much more than just acting, including developing and executive producing.
Lisa Hamilton Daly, EVP, Programming, Crown Media Family Networks was full of praise:
In addition to shining on screen, Lacey is a prolific behind-the-scenes creative partner, developing and executive producing many of our highest-quality, most-beloved projects of all time. She inherently understands and embodies what our networks are all about – the transformational power of love and making people feel good – and we look forward to continuing our work with her to create heartfelt, compelling stories that will entertain, inspire, and touch our audience.Lisa Hamilton Daly
The deal is a two year long multi-picture deal with Crown Media. It includes headlining, executive producing, and developing content for the Hallmark Channel and “other Hallmark platforms”.
That last part might be of particular interest to Mystery fans. Other Hallmark platforms is likely to signify Hallmark Movies & Mysteries so maybe more Crossword Mysteries? It is too early to say for sure, it could point to a new Mystery starring Chabert.
Hallmark Is Home
Lacey Chabert has been making films for Hallmark since 2010. She has now racked up an impressive 30 films and had this to say:
My experience at Hallmark, a home to me for over ten years now, has been wonderful and it’s beyond rewarding to create characters and develop stories that resonate so strongly with viewers. I’m also incredibly grateful to Crown’s programming team for supporting me as a producer and empowering me to develop and star in projects that bring my passion and creative vision to life. I am so excited for what’s next and to continue connecting with Hallmark’s audience.
