Movies 24 – the movie channel operated by NBCUniversal International Networks – has acquired Hallmark’s All Of My Heart: The Wedding and Lifetime’s A Twist Of Christmas after striking a deal with international distributor Red Arrow Studios International.
All Of My Heart tells the story of Jenny Fintley, a former caterer from Connecticut, and Brian Hudson, a hard-driving Wall Street type from New York. When they both inherited a quaint Bed and Breakfast called Emily’s Inn in Bucks County, the last thing they expected was to fall in love.
Still, their chemistry is undeniable, so they both move to rural Pennsylvania to remodel their inn and eventually get married. The movies are produced by Front Street Pictures and Better Road Productions and star Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls), Brennan Elliott (Criminal Minds), Ed Asner (The Mary Tyler Moore Show), Daniel Cudmore (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Heather Doerksen (The Cabin in the Woods). The Wedding is the third entry in the All Of My Heart series and Movies 24 previously scheduled the UK premiere for the movie before the deal to acquire it was formally announced.
A Twist Of Christmas picks up when, in the frenzy before Christmas, two single parents – busy working mom Abby and her son, and overwhelmed lawyer Ryan and his daughter, accidentally mix up their toys at a crowded department store. As a result, both of their Christmases appear to be ruined. Although the two can’t stand each other, the only way to get things back on track is to help each other salvage their holiday plans – not realizing they’re falling for each other in the process. The movie is produced by Lighthouse Pictures and stars Vanessa Lachey and Brendon Zub.
The deal with Movies 24 was announced today by Red Arrow Studios International alongside a plethora of other deals with international broadcasters in other countries. “These recent deals really are testament to the on-going strength of our TV movie portfolio and our enduring relationships with our suppliers, both in Europe and the US”< said Bo Stehmeier, President of Red Arrow Studios International. “We’re pleased to be able to share such a great array of content with our network of partners across the continent.”
