“Joy Night In” Partnership Includes Linear Integrations, Robust Digital Strategy & Front-of-Store Activation in 1,400 Walmart Locations Nationwide

New York, NY (November 19, 2019) – Hallmark Channel and Campbell Soup Company are teaming up to celebrate the holidays with a multi-platform strategic partnership around “Countdown to Christmas”, the companies announced today. Encouraging viewers to “Eat, Watch & Be Merry” with a “Joy Night In”, the collaboration consists of on-air integrations, an extensive digital and social media strategy, and a secondary partnership with Walmart, putting the promotion front-and-center in 1,400 retail locations nationwide. Central to the partnership is a custom-created, co-branded “Joy Night In” programming guide which features the full “Countdown to Christmas” original movie premiere schedule, recipes, a watch-and-play Bingo game, and more.

“In addition to classic holiday customs like indoor gatherings and families cooking together, ‘Countdown to Christmas’ has become a cherished seasonal tradition in its own right,” said Ed Georger, EVP, advertising sales & digital media, Crown Media Family Networks. “Much like Hallmark Channel’s signature holiday movies, Campbell’s® soup and recipes evoke the warmth and spirit of the season, making this partnership the perfect fit.”

”Our Joy Night In partnership was built around the trend of JOMO, or the joy of missing out,” said Marci Raible, VP, Integrated Marketing, Campbell Soup Company. “By partnering with Hallmark and Walmart with a goal of positioning Campbell’s in a relevant and refreshing way, we’re able to fully integrate Campbell’s into the holiday experience by creating an innovative and impactful media-to-shelf program.”
