Series: Hallmark Hall of Fame

Hallmark Hall Of Fame (1951-) is a Long Runner series of (mostly) serious Made For TV Movies produced and promoted by the Hallmark greeting card company in the US, usually featured on the Hallmark Channel. Outside of PBS and the Met, Hallmark Hall Of Fame is one of the few productions still sponsored and aired (on occasion) by a single corporate benefactor. The works vary all over the place — from hard-hitting drama and tragedy, to soft-tissue Melodrama and slice-of-life pics.

For the more general Genre of shows that express some form of "Hallmark Sentiment", see A Hallmark Presentation.

Notable entries include dramas which challenge such audience expectations.

For the Darker and Edgier version, see HBO, Lifetime Movie of the Week.

Not to be confused with movies made for The Hallmark Channel, which often aren't part of this series.
