Lori Loughlin is back in front of the camera since getting out of prison — doing work on a network you may have never heard of … until now!
The former ‘Full House’ star and Hallmark Channel darling is acting in her first TV show since the college admission scandal … which implicated Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli – both whom eventually pleaded guilty and served time behind bars.
The dust has mostly settled on that front — and, so, here’s a first look at Lori getting back to normal with the upcoming holiday series “When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas” … a 2-part premiere that’ll be airing on the GAC Family network in December.
This series is a spinoff of Lori’s old Hallmark show, “When Calls the Heart,” and she’s reprising her longtime role of Abigail Stanton. The difference now … this new show is NOT on Hallmark and was picked up by GAC, which is a lot like THC in the content department.
You’ll recall … Lori got dropped by Hallmark on the heels of being charged in the college admission scandal in 2019 — and they made it quite clear she wasn’t welcome back.
With that said, it’s bizarre that a Hallmark-linked show got greenlit elsewhere … with Lori’s character being brought back, and folks making the Hallmark connection. Still, it’s not technically being carried on their airwaves — maybe they think their hands are clean. 🤷🏽♂️
In any case … she’s not the only one getting a second chance — Felicity Huffman, too, is going back to work. She’s set to star in a comedy series on none other than ABC.
It seems her owning up to her crime early and often had a slightly different result career-wise.
