More Actors Leave Hallmark For Faith-Based ‘Great American Media’

Two more popular actors from the Hallmark channel have left the network to work for Great American Media.

Carlos PenaVega and Alexa PenaVega will reportedly appear in the movie “Mr. Manhattan” on the streaming site Great American Pure Flix, part of the Great American Media company.

“Carlos and Alexa are audience favorites and beloved for their commitment to family on and off the screen, which is the foundation of Mr. Manhattan,” Bill Abbott, President & CEO of Great American Media, said.

“And we are excited about a number of additional projects in development with these two enormously talented actors,” he added.

The Great American Pure Flix streaming site is described as the “leading faith and family streaming service that inspires, uplifts and entertains with content that you can confidently stream with the entire family.”

Actress Candace Cameron Bure joined GAF in 2022, where she develops, produces, and stars in movies and TV shows broadcast on the channel.

The former “Fuller House” star previously said she left Hallmark because she wanted to share “faith-filled” messages “that have more meaning and purpose and depth behind them.”

“I knew that the people behind Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment,” Bure said.

The actress noted that Hallmark had essentially become “a completely different network” than when she signed on due to a “change of leadership.”
