The seven week break in the airing schedule allows the cast and crew to get some much deserved time off during the holidays to rest and spend some time with family. It will also allow for them to have a easier production timeline upon return from their holiday break.

We also will be busy in this time period with Hallmark Heartbeats leading up to Christmas. Camille is supposed to have surgery on her throat in January and we will take the time off given to us to rest, enjoy Christmas with our families, and for her to recover from surgery before the show returns in February.

We say enjoy life and your holiday season!
