He is also very excited about the increased diversity in holiday programming. Darnell said:

The paradigm shift in diversity in our industry and how excited we were for this opportunity Hallmark gave us. We took the responsibility very seriously to bring in stellar numbers for the network. It was our top priority every day. A Christmas Miracle is a great example of this shift. This movie has a brilliant executive producer named Stephanie Germain, and two BLACK leads.
