2nd Highest Rated and 2nd Most Watched Original Movie In Network History


In a breakout first quarter, Hallmark Movie Channel, now available in 50 million U.S. homes, builds momentum with its third original premiere of 2013, “Our Wild Hearts”, scoring a 1.0 household rating and attracting nearly 1.1 million unduplicated viewers.


The Saturday, March 9th original debut replaces the recent premiere of “Goodnight for Justice: Queen of Hearts” as Hallmark Movie Channel’s 2nd highest rated and 2nd most watched original movie in network history among households and total viewers.


“Our Wild Hearts” averaged 702,000 total viewers and ranked as the #4 rated ad-supported cable movie of the day.


A two-hour original film written by veteran actor, Ricky Schroder and his wife, Andrea Schroder, and starring their daughter, Cambrie Schroder, “Our Wild Hearts” tells the tale of  Willow, a strong and independent teenager from Malibu, determined to find the father she’s never known. Willow leaves Malibu for the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains in order to search for her father, Jack Thomas, a rugged cowboy who sells wild horses to make ends meet. As Jack and Willow struggle to know one another and understand each other's ways, Willow discovers her first love is a wild, but gifted mustang she names Bravo. The steed’s indomitable spirit helps Willow find a love for spontaneity and adventure with the father she thought she’d never meet. Directed by Ricky Schroder, “Our Wild Hearts” stars Ricky Schroder and Cambrie Schroder.

    I love movies about horses but this was nothing but a vanity project, poorly written and directed by Ricky Schroder and his wife, and starring Ricky Schroder’s daughter.

    You would think that the Hallmark Movie Channel would show MOVIES 24 hours a day. They ruined the regular Hallmark Movie Channel with the non stop old series reruns, and I was so happy when we got the Hallmark MOVIE Channel. Now, they are ruining it as well with the non stop Murder She Wrote, Matlock, and Perry Mason reruns,especially late at night. Please show movies all the time on the Hallmark MOVIE Channel!!!
