Lori Loughlin's arrest makes for unlikely drama for Hallmark

Things are not going well for Lori Loughlin. Loughlin also stars in Hallmark's ongoing "Garage Sale Mysteries" movies and the series "When Calls the Heart".

"We are evaluating all creative options related to "When Calls the Heart" series", the company stated.

Hallmark Cards Inc. says it will no longer working with Loughlin and has stopped development of all productions involving her.

Hallmark's announcement follows an earlier one from LVMH's Sephora beauty chain, which said it was ending its partnership with Loughlin's daughter, Olivia. "This is our format, this is what we do,"' Loughlin said in an interview past year with The Associated Press about the Christmas movies.

Loughlin was one of roughly 40 people charged in what officials called the "largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice".

Loughlin and her husband were taken into federal custody and later released on separate $1 million bonds on Wednesday.

As part of her bond arrangement, Loughlin is being permitted to travel within the continental U.S.as well as British Columbia, where she is now filming. Loughlin actually has projects slated through November, after which the judge has ordered her to surrender her passport on December 19.

The actress' travel was restricted to the United States and Canada, as she had been filming Garage Sale Mysteries in Vancouver.

The New York City native with a sunny smile proved a good fit for the channel that specializes in romantic dramas and comedies with a wholesome touch, while her media-friendly personality allowed her to expertly tout her shows on her website and in TV appearances. Authorities allege she and her husband paid US$500,000 to have their daughters labeled as crew team recruits at the University of Southern California, even though neither was a rower. This, though neither child had participated in the sport.

Fellow actress Felicity Huffman, an Academy Award nominee, was arrested at her home on Tuesday for her alleged involvement in the scheme.
