Patricia Richardson Stars as a Housekeeper Who Plays Matchmaker for Erin Krakow in "Chance at Romance" a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere, February 8

An online friend request becomes a romantic journey for Erin Krakow ("When Calls The Heart," "Army Wives") in "Chance at Romance," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere Saturday, February 8 (7p.m. ET/PT, 6C). Four-time Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress Patricia Richardson ("Snow Bride," "Home Improvement"), Ryan McPartlin ("Chuck") and Kaitlin Doubleday ("The March Sisters at Christmas") star alongside Krakow in the romantic comedy.

Ever the romantic, Samantha "Sam" Hart (Krakow) 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 (McPartlin) 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, "The Mentalist") and their longtime housekeeper, May (Richardson). 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 (Doubleday).

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. A nasty bout of weather, however, extends her stay through the end of the week. In this 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. Sam sees the softer side of Heath and Heath sees how Sam brings an energy to his family and his home that has been missing since his wife passed away. Despite the nontraditional start to their virtual relationship, could an actual relationship between Heath and Sam be their destiny?

"Chance at Romance" is A Mediapool Production in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer.
