(UnitedVoice.com) – Operation Varsity Blues rocked the country in 2019. The Department of Justice uncovered a scandal involving college admissions. While some high school students worked extremely hard to get into their dream universities, rich and powerful people were buying their children’s way into the schools. Former “Full House” actress Lori Loughlin was one of those parents. Now, she is trying to rebuild her reputation and career.
Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were both convicted in the scandal for paying to get their daughters into the University of Southern California on athletic scholarships. The actress received a sentence of two months in prison, two years of supervised release, a fine of $150,000, and 100 hours of community service. For the first time since getting out of prison, Loughlin has starred in a new movie.
On January 28, the Great American Family network released the TV movie “Fall Into Winter” starring the actress.
Loughlin played “Kerry,” a woman who finds out her brother has decided to sell his half of the family-owned candy shop to her high school nemesis, Brooks, played by James Tupper. The two old rivals are forced to work together, and along the way, she starts to feel something stronger than anger. But she’s forced to overcome her own baggage.
Great American Media President and CEO Bill Abbott previously told TV Insider that Loughlin is a “genre-defining star” and he is honored “to call [her] a close friend.” He explained that they both have a passion for “creating meaningful and memorable movies,” and he said he was happy to welcome her back to his network.
Loughlin was released from prison three years ago, in 2020. She’s now trying to rebuild her life and move on from her mistakes. Her husband, Giannulli, is also out of prison after being sentenced to five months. The couple is still together.
