With many television networks still trying to develop programing that will garner yearly growth, Crown Media Family Networks (home to Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries) seems to have perfected a winning formula. This year alone Crown Media has given the green light to a staggering 89 movies, making it one of the industry’s most prolific studios, eclipsing many of its Hollywood counterparts. The networks are boasting double-digit revenue and ratings increases over the last three years and a boost in subscribers, with Hallmark Channel at 88 million and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries approaching 79m. Of course, greater success brings greater demand.
