Academy Award(R) And Golden Globe Nominee Michael Clarke Duncan
And Christine Scott Bennett Co-Star
Romance has long been forgotten for an overworked single mom until an unexpected email arrives in "A Crush on You," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere Saturday, June 11 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C). Brigid Brannagh ("Army Wives") and Sean Patrick Flanery ("Saw VII 3D") star alongside Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Michael Clarke Duncan ("The Green Mile") and Christine Scott Bennett ("How I Met Your Mother") in the romantic comedy.

Later that night, Ben courageously breaks the ice by introducing himself to Chloe anonymously via email with this message: "Five Top Reasons Why I'm Your Secret Admirer."
But, Ben's display of affection for Chloe is misfiled when his emails are instead delivered to Charley Anderson (Brannagh), email@example.com. It seems Chloe's co-worker shares a similar email protocol at Game 1 Sports and Entertainment Marketing owned by the legendary sports star "Big-Jim" Nelson (Duncan).
Charley, an overworked single mom who hit the delete button on romance long ago, now excitedly turns on her computer. She waits. Her breath catches. Then, suddenly the three words Charley's been waiting for�
