Teri Hatcher (“Desperate Housewives,” “A Kiss Before Christmas”) and James Tupper (“Big Little Lies,” “Revenge”) are one-time high school sweethearts who reunite in a surprising way in “Mid-Love Crisis,” a new original premiering this fall on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Brian Markinson (“Mayor of Kingstown”), June Laporte (“When Calls the Heart”) and Matreya Scarrwener(“Lies Between Friends”) also star.
With her milestone 50th birthday just one week away, Mindy (Hatcher) realizes she’s in the throes of a bonafide mid-life crisis. When her daughter Rita (Laporte) comes home to their lake house for a long weekend with her girlfriend Emily (Scarrwener) and Emily’s uncle Sam (Tupper) life throws her another curveball – Sam is Mindy’s former high school sweetheart she hasn’t spoken to in more than three decades. The weekend takes another unexpected turn when Rita confides in Mindy that she plans to surprise Emily with a proposal and wants her dad – Mindy’s ex-husband Marc (Markinson) – to join them. Between two exes under one roof vying for Mindy’s affection and trying to talk Rita out of the big 50th birthday party she’s planning, Mindy has a lot to navigate. As the weekend progresses, an assertiveness inside her awakens and Mindy finds herself not only embracing her life, but discovering what it is she truly wants as she gets ready to start the next chapter.
“Teri Hatcher has both impeccable comedic timing and the ability to play dramatic roles, which made her the perfect choice to bring Mindy to life,” began Elizabeth Yost, Senior Vice President, Programming, Hallmark Media. “She and James Tupper have such great chemistry on screen, and we know our viewers will be drawn to their characters’ story.”
“Mid-Love Crisis” is from Lighthouse Pictures. Shawn Williamson, Jamie Goehring and Trevor McWhinney are executive producers. Robert Lycar serves as producer. Terry Ingram directed from a script by Joie Botkin.
