The Hallmark Channel movie Chance at Romance will debut on February 8 at 7 PM.
Ever the romantic, Samantha “Sam” Hart (Erin Krakow from When Calls the Heart) is optimistically trying to find her Prince Charming on a white horse even if that means going on bad date after bad date. When she initiates an online relationship with photographer Heath Madsen (Ryan McPartlin from Chuck) after making eye contact at one of his shows, she never expects that Heath will send her a first class ticket to visit him. Upon arriving for what she expects to be a romantic weekend, she learns that her online relationship with the handsome widow was actually created by Heath’s son, Donny (Ian Andrew from The Mentalist) and their longtime housekeeper, May (Patricia Richardson from Home Improvement). Even worse, her visit is a complete surprise to Heath, who is busy struggling to find inspiration for his upcoming photo exhibit and coping with the pressure from his pushy manager, Celeste Jeffers-Johnson (Kaitlin Doubleday from The March Sisters at Christmas). Once Sam realizes that this romantic visit is nothing but a set-up manufactured by a twelve year-old, she is anxious to end her trip as quickly as possible, but a nasty bout of weather extends her stay through the end of the week. In that time, her non-relationship with Heath has a chance to become a friendship – and maybe more, if Donny and May have anything to do with it.
Here is a trailer for Chance at Romance.
