Andrea Brooks (“When Calls the Heart,” “Supergirl”), Marcus Rosner (“UnReal,” “Valentine in the Vineyard”) and Nathan Witte (“Cut, Color, Murder,” “Superman & Lois” star in “Romance to the Rescue,” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, May 21 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel.
Romance to the Rescue : Synopsis
Kyra (Brooks) is goal-oriented in all aspects of her life, from professional to personal.
When she meets Trevor (Witte), the new manager at the grocery store where Kyra works, he
seems to check off all the boxes when it comes to what she’s looking for in love. When her well-
meaning co-worker and friend Mark (Benjamin Charles Watson, “Designated Survivor”) tells dog-
loving Trevor that Kyra has an agility trained dog, she plays along. But when Trevor tells her he
can’t wait to see Kyra enter her dog in the upcoming agility contest the store is sponsoring, Kyra
is faced with a canine quandary. She quickly adopts an adorable dog, Sam (Nova), from a local
shelter but it soon becomes clear she needs help on the training front. Although he’s hesitant at
first, Kyra convinces Kevin (Rosner), the head of the shelter, to put his training skills to use and
help her get Sam competition-ready. As the two spend time together, not only does Sam begin
to flourish at agility, but Kyra and Kevin start to fall for each other. But when Kevin learns why
Kyra adopted Sam and needed to train him in a hurry, their budding romance hits a new obstacle
that may throw them off course.
“Romance to the Rescue” is from Johnson Production Group. Timothy O. Johnson is executive producer. Joseph Wilka serves as co-executive producer. Navid Soofi is producer and Oliver De Caigny is supervising producer. Heather Hawthorn-Doyle directed from a script by Barbara Kymlicka.
Brooks’ Kyra is a “Pretty bold, type-A personality. She’s very career-oriented.”
“I think any character like this is always overcompensating,” Brooks says. “Once she finds the dog, that kind of opens her up to new possibilities in life.”
“This is a traditional Hallmark story: two characters falling for one another, they have a spark, but then there’s this third party there at every given moment,” Brooks say. “So it was just a really fun character to play off of.”
Rosner’s Kevin is “an introvert hiding from interpersonal relationships through the love of all the dogs that he takes care of.” His own past struggles make him resistant to let people in. And Brooks says Kyra is “absolutely” afraid of falling in love as well.
