Lori Loughlin dropped from Hallmark, production halted on several Vancouver-filmed projects

Lori Loughlin dropped from Hallmark, production halted on several Vancouver-filmed projects

Allegations surfaced that they bribed sports recruiters inside the university to have their children accepted as athletes for the crew team, despite the fact that neither of their children participated in the sport.

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

Actors Dave Coulier (L) and Lori Loughlin speak onstage during the 2016 TV Land Icon Awards at The Barker Hanger on April 10, 2016 in Santa Monica, California.

Loughlin, who was on the cast of the hit 90s sitcom "Full House", is accused of spending $500,000 in bribes to help her two daughters gain admission into USC. The network doesn't specify if they'll continue to air the current season of When Calls the Heart but it seems likely that they will.

Jezebel (and Mashable's own Nicole Gallucci, above) noted Wednesday that Loughlin has inadvertently become "the face of the Hallmark Channel" with her ubiquity in its programming.

A representative for Loughlin declined to comment. She appeared in Los Angeles federal court Tuesday looking visibly exhausted, before posting $250,000 bail and surrendering her passport.

Felicity Huffman ("Desperate Housewives", "American Crime") was among other prominent parents, including a lawyer, doctor and hedge fund manager, indicted in the scam.

Loughlin surrendered to law enforcement Wednesday, one day after the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced it indicted dozens of people allegedly involved in the scam. It's quickly moved to respond to any flare-ups, such as removing a gift wrap from circulation after one person complained of seeing a swastika in its pattern. But the white-collar crime Loughlin is accused of is akin to that of another unlikely scofflaw: Martha Stewart, who was convicted in 2004 of obstructing justice and lying to the government about a stock sale. So did her empire, despite Stewart's efforts to separate her personal actions from it: "Wrong - you're the brand", he said.

While Stewart may exemplify her business, Loughlin wasn't the only engaging star on Hallmark's roster.
