Davida Williams (“B Positive,” “Casual”) and Richard Harmon (“The 100,” “Van Helsing”) take the court to star in “Game, Set, Love,” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, August 27 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual “Fall into Love” programming event. Tennis champion Venus Williams serves as executive producer on the movie, which features tennis fashions from her clothing line, EleVen.
Former No. 1 ranked pro tennis player Tracy Austin serves as a sideline commentator in the movie playing herself. Taylor (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, “Coroner”) and has been enjoying teaching tennis to kids at the local club. Her former doubles partner Ashley (Jennifer Khoe, “Superman & Lois”) asks her to coach her and her new doubles partner Will (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 from Crown Media Productions, LLC. Laurie Pozmantier, Ben
Silverman, Alexandre Coscas, Michael Goldstein and Venus Williams are executive producers.
Jessica Harmon directed from a script by Alex Wright, Duane Poole and Kelly Fullerton.
