GAC Media has announced that Full House alum Candace Cameron Bure has signed an agreement with the company to develop, produce, and star in movies and television across GAC Family and GAC Living.
The hiring of Bure continues GAC Media’s efforts to rebrand since bringing aboard former Crown Media CEO Bill Abbott last year. In September 2021, the former Great American Country network relaunched as GAC Family, aiming to present more family-oriented entertainment, similar to Abbott’s former employer Hallmark Channel.
Bure is perhaps best known for playing D.J. Tanner in the classic ABC sitcom Full House; she would reprise the role in Netflix’s reboot Fuller House in 2016. She competed on Dancing with the Stars in 2014 and was co-host of The View in 2015 and 2016. Outside of her film and TV work, Bure is a New York Times best-selling author, having written four lifestyle and self-help books.
Others faces familiar to Hallmark viewers who have appeared in GAC programming include Trevor Donovan, Nick Bateman, Rukiya Bernard, Sara Canning, Dillon Casey, Torrance Coombs, Trevor Donovan, Brendan Fehr, Jennie Garth, Maggie Lawson, Jen Lilley, Sarah Lind, Daniel Lissing, Jessica Lowndes, Matthew MacCaull, Chad Michael Murray, Sam Page, Merritt Patterson, Becca Tobin, Jill Wagner and Dewshane Williams.
