In another major acquisition for NBCUniversal’s streamer, Peacock, now comes word on Monday, that it has picked up the Hallmark Channel in a wide-ranging content deal with Hallmark Media.

The deal will include streaming simulcasts of Hallmark’s linear channels, as well as a library of on-demand and next-day content.

Known for its Christmas and holiday movies (which often feature soap stars including Days favorite, Alison Sweeney), Hallmark Media will bring their original films and current series to Peacock. The linear channels that will be available include: Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and Hallmark Drama.

According to the Hollywood Reporter who shared the news, it’s a rare streaming deal with a third-party for Peacock, which has mostly built its service using content developed in-house at NBCUniversal. Just last month Peacock began streaming programming from channels like NBC and Bravo on a next-day basis, after taking back the rights from Hulu.

Kelly Campbell, president of Peacock and direct-to-consumer at NBCUniversal, in a statement: “As we continue to make Peacock a premium streaming destination, Hallmark is exactly the type of brand we want to align with. Through this groundbreaking partnership, we’re giving Hallmark viewers a unique viewing experience while continuing to grow our audience, boosting engagement across both brands.”

Days of our Lives recently joined Peacock back in September after nearly 57 years on NBC.

So, what do you think of the Hallmark Channel and its content coming to Peacock? A good fit along with DAYS? Comment below.

Oh no!!! I watch a lot of Hallmark on the Women’s channel as part of my basic cable package. Does this mean I am going to have to pay to get Hallmark on Peacock? So far I am not a subscriber to any steaming services. And don’t want to become one.

Su000…Thanks for the heads up. I’ll check with my provider as well, and see how their program options are for Hallmark. I would miss having H as a frequent, good ending, time out from all the new I do follow. But even I can’t binge on H after a while…too many copy-cat stories from other seasons. But I always nice to see some of our soap people spreading their wings.

Su000…Thank you so much for the info. I’ll see what I can do with my provider. Otherwise no streaming at $5.99 for me. Needless to say I am so disappointed. Whoever bought Turner Classic Movies ruined it, too. I think it was Warner’s, No more free movies in my basic cable. Oh, I can get it on YouTube, but again they want you to pay. TPTB who are running the world now now keep taking more and more away us day by day. Unless you now pay or have apps. I won’t be ruled by greed and tech. So f**k… Read more »

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
