While promoting her new role at Great American Family, and her upcoming movie, Candace said that it was more than just a contract renewal.
“My heart wants to tell stories 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,” she says, before adding that Hallmark “basically is a completely different network than when I started because of the change of leadership.”
Later on in the interview, Candace also spoke about the network featuring same-sex couples.
“I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core,” she says.
CEO Bill Abbott then chimed in, saying that “it’s certainly the year 2022, so we’re aware of the trends. There’s no whiteboard that says, ‘Yes, this’ or ‘No, we’ll never go here.’”
