We know that someones going to have something to say about what we’re about to say, but we can’t be the only one having a hard time imagining Richard Harmon in a Hallmark movie. Look, we love him, truly. But he’s always been the “bad boy,” and being the “bad boy of tennis” in a Hallmark movie, isn’t even close to the same thing.
We said what we said.
But tonights all new Hallmark movie, Game, Set, Love, has him playing the “bad boy of tennis” and even though we’re skeptical we will be watching.
Taylor (Davida Williams) is a former professional tennis player who retired from the sport following the passing of her mother so she could be there for her father, David (Roger Cross) and has been enjoying teaching tennis to kids at the local club. Her former doubles partner Ashley (Jennifer Khoe) asks her to coach her and her new doubles partner Will (Richard Harmon), a player whose reputation and career are in need of repair thanks to his hotheaded antics on the court. Taylor reluctantly agrees and though she and Will clash at first, she’s surprised to discover a different side to him. Even more surprising is when Taylor finds herself entering the doubles tournament with Will after Ashley is sidelined by an injury. As Taylor and Will spend more time together while they get ready to compete, the pair learns they just may be a perfect match in more ways than one.
Game, Set, Love is part of Hallmarks annual Fall Into Love event. Will you be watching?
