Hallmark Channel Drops Lori Loughlin in Wake of College Admission Scandal

The Hallmark Channel has severed ties with former Full House actress Lori Loughlin after she was indicted in a sprawling, multi-million dollar college fraud scandal, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Loughlin starred in the When Calls the Heart series, the Garage Sale Mystery T.V. movies, and several made-for-T.V. Christmas films on the channel. “We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” Hallmark's parent company, Crown Media, said in a statement. “We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin, including Garage Sale Mysteries, an independent third party production.” Another parent indicted in the scandal, Bill McGlashan, reportedly resigned from his private equity investment firm after his indictment.
