A ROMANCE NOVELIST'S RESEARCH PAIRS HER
WITH THE EMBODIMENT OF HER FICTIONAL HERO IN
"ALL FOR LOVE,"
A NEW, ORIGINAL HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE
PREMIERES SATURDAY, MAY 13
Sara Rue ("Less Than Perfect") and Steve Bacic ("When Calls the Heart") Star
STUDIO CITY, CA - March 27, 2017 - Sara Rue ("Less Than Perfect," "Popular") and Steve Bacic ("When Calls the Heart") star in Hallmark Channel's "All For Love," a new original movie premiering Saturday, May 13 (9 p.m. ET/PT).
After a string of successes, romance novelist Jo Parker (Rue) is worried that she's lost her Cupid's touch. She herself has sworn off relationships, her sales are down and her last book was a critical and commercial disaster replete with factual errors. Jo is badly in need of a success and her publisher isn't happy with her first draft of "SEALed with a Kiss," featuring a hunky Navy Seal hero. With her career in balance, Jo unenthusiastically commits herself to an immersive research course with an openly skeptical retired Seal, Colin Shaw (Bacic), who runs a military-style boot camp. As Jo embarks on the grueling regimen alongside aspiring Seals and Marines, she discovers capabilities she didn't know she had and contributes to her team in ways no one expected. From their rocky beginnings, writer and sailor develop a mutual respect and perhaps something more -- but can art really imitate life?
"'All For Love' is a charming story about expanding your definition of who you can be and how you can live your life," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. "Sara Rue and Steve Bacic have a delightful chemistry and viewers will love seeing the sparks fly between their smart, strong-willed characters."
"All for Love" is a Book Road Production Ltd. Jack Grossbart, Linda Kent, Michael Shepard and Marnie Young are executive producers. Harvey Kahn is producer. Lee Friedlander is the director. Writers are Mark Famiglietti, Michael Testa, Tracy Andreen and Lee Friedlander.
