Actress Sara Rue returns to Hallmark Channel this weekend in the premiere of True Love Blooms, part of the network's annual Spring Fever programming event. For Rue, who made her Hallmark debut in 2017's All for Love, the wait in returning to the network had good reason; True Love Blooms was her baby, based on an idea by, and executive produced by her. "This one was really exciting," she told MediaVillage in an exclusive interview. "I've sold pilots as a writer and movie ideas with creative teams, but never anything that was greenlit. There are so many steps to the process, so when I spoke to [the people at] Hallmark and they said, 'Congrats, we're going to make this,' I was like, 'Really?' I couldn't quite believe it.
