Jessica Lowndes is no stranger to Hallmark Channel or its companion network Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, racking up five films between the two since joining the Crown Media Family in 2016. But the multi-talented entertainer entered new territory for Over the Moon in Love, her latest Hallmark Channel project, serving as the star, the screenwriter, an executive producer and music contributor, along with pretty much anything else you could think of concerning a production. For the delightful 30-year-old, the movie brings to fruition something that she’s been preparing for since childhood. “I've been writing my whole life,” she enthusiastically shared when MediaVillage sat down for an exclusive chat about the project. “My introduction to that was at age 10. I had a schoolteacher who had a currency in his class, kind of like Monopoly money, and he'd give everyone a classroom job and pay you in that currency. He’d hold auctions and you could buy things, only he never knew what to do with me. So, he made me the class playwright. Every week he’d give me a lesson that he was teaching, and I would write a play, star in it, direct it and cast it around that lesson -- it was amazing. I saw him a few years ago and he printed off those plays and gave them back to me!
