Hallmark Channel has announced the start of production for the new movie, A Second Chance At Love, which will premiere on March 25 at 8 p.m.
The film will see Emmy nominees Eriq La Salle and Gloria Reuben reunite on-screen for the first time since starring together on ER. The film also stars Alvina August and Jarod Joseph.
Here is the film’s description:
On the surface, Alicia (August) and Arnold’s (Joseph) marriage is picture perfect, however, there is something amiss. Arnold is ready to grow their family, but subconsciously Alicia is hesitant to the idea. Rather than face the problem head on, Alicia, the self-proclaimed “love doctor,” immerses herself in her divorced parents Jack (La Salle) and Brenda’s (Reuben) dating affairs by setting them each up on a blind date dating app.
Lisa Hamilton Daly EVP, Programming Crown Media Family Networks shared, “We are so excited to reunite Eriq and Gloria in this all-new movie. With 20 years passed since they last appeared on the screen together, this heartwarming romcom will showcase their undeniable chemistry – a treat for viewers ready to see this television reunion. I’m looking forward to it and I know so many ER fans are, too.”
LaSalle shared his excitement as well, adding, “I’m excited to work with Hallmark again and reunite with Gloria.”
“It’s wonderful to join the Hallmark family and to reunite with Eriq after so many years, especially in a completely different genre of storytelling,” said Reuben.
A Second Chance at Love, from NGN Productions, is written by Chad Quinn and directed Alfons Adetuyi. Kimberley Wakefield, Jacob Nasser, Joseph Nasser, Danial Nasser, Danny Webber and Jack Nasser serve as executive producers with Tara Cowell-Plain serving as producer. .
