STUDIO CITY - February 22, 2017 - In an effort to connect with her teenage son, a single mom and math teacher leaves behind her structured life for when they spend spring break at a family wilderness camp, where she's forced to step outside her comfort zone and finds romance in the process in the new, original movie "Campfire Kiss," premiering Saturday, March 18, (9 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Channel. The film stars Danica McKellar ("The Wonder Years") and Paul Greene ("Wicked Wicked Games").

Dana (McKellar) is a middle school math teacher who runs her life by the numbers. Realizing a connection is missing with her 13-year-old son Arthur (Dylan Kingwell), she decides they need to get away and so they head to a family wilderness camp for spring break. Not long after arriving, they meet up with their tent neighbors Steve (Greene), an outdoorsman, and his teen daughter Lacey (Ali Skovbye), but he and Dana are exact opposites and instantly clash. However, when the four get lost on a hike in the woods and eventually find their way back to camp in one piece, Dana begins to realize that loosening up a bit and living in the moment might do her some good. As she and Steve find common ground in their ongoing struggles to bond with their teenage kids, they discover a growing mutual attraction. But when the last campfire has been put out at the end of the trip and they go their separate ways, the romance seems doomed until Arthur and Lacey conspire to play matchmaker, certain that the pair belongs together.

"Danica has played a variety of characters our viewers have loved, from wedding planner to fashion designer to governess-turned-princess," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. "In 'Campfire Kiss,' we're excited to see her step into a role that lets her combine two of her real-life passions - motherhood and math - and we know viewers are going to have fun watching her journey."

"Campfire Kiss" is a Camping Production. Brad Krevoy, Danica McKellar, Susie Belzberg, Shawn Williamson, Eric Jarboe, Amy Krell, Jimmy Townsend, Amanda Phillips Atkins and Jamie Goehring are executive producers. Michael Shepard, Doran S. Chandler and Nathaniel Lyman serve as supervising producers. Jonathan Shore and Vincent Balzano are associate producers. Kevin Leslie serves as producer. James Head directed from a teleplay by Rick Suvalle with story by Scott Sveslosky and Suvalle.
