Lori Loughlin Is ‘Genre-Defining Star’

Bill Abbott, who is President and CEO of Great American Media calls Loughlin, “Lori is a genre-defining star that I have had the honor to call a close friend and collaborator for more than 15 years.”

Last year, Abbott brought the WCTH star into guest star in When Hope Calls Christmas. She reprised her When Calls The Heart role of Abigail Stanton. In addition, Daniel Lissing came in for a moving cameo, reprising his role as Jack Thornton.

Therefore, Abbott was happy to have her return for another movie. “We have a shared vision for creating meaningful and memorable movies that resonate with our passionate fans, and I look forward to welcoming her back to Great American Family to anchor our 2023 winter programming slate.”

Lori Loughlin Received Prison Sentence For Role In College Admissions Scandal

It has been a four-year journey for Loughlin to get back to starring in a movie again. Back in March 2019, the Fuller House star’s life imploded. The actress spent two months in jail for participating in the College Admissions Scandal, and her husband five months.

What was the scandal? William “Rick” Singer got money from wealthy parents in exchange for admitting their college-age students into the University of Southern California. Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli exchanged  $500,000 to Singer so that their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose could get into UCLA.

When the news came out, Bill Abbott, then Hallmark CEO, fired Loughlin from the network. In addition, they stopped airing new episodes of When Calls The Heart. The producers then had to painstakingly remove any trace of Loughlin from the remaining episodes of Season 6.

After her prison sentence, Lori Loughlin did community service, as well as set up scholarships for students.
