HARTBREAK FILMS, INC

A Family Friendly Film and Television Production Company Owned by Paula Hart and Melissa Joan Hart. Realizing that there wasn’t any real programming that the whole family could watch, Paula Hart and Melissa Joan Hart decided to found Hartbreak Films in 1993 to produce both projects for Melissa to star in and projects that they can produce. After acquiring the rights to the Archie comic book, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Paula served as Executive Producer on this highly rated Showtime movie that starred her daughter, Melissa. With that success, she developed the TV series that also starred Melissa and produced 163 episodes of the live action series, 65 episodes f the animated series, 3 MOW’s as well as a host of licensed products. More recently, Hartbreak produced 104 episodes of the hit show Melissa and Joey for ABC Family .
