A struggling waitress and single mom finds herself falling down the rabbit hole when she falls in love with an actor hiding a secret identity in "Accidentally In Love," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere Saturday, February 12 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C). Written by "Twilight" star and SAG Award nominee Peter Facinelli ("Nurse Jackie"), "Accidentally In Love" stars Facinelli's wife Jennie Garth ("90210," "What I Like About You"), who headlines an all-star cast including four-time Emmy Award nominee Fred Willard ("Modern Family," "Everybody Loves Raymond"), five-time Golden Globe nominee Marilu Henner ("Taxi") and Ethan Erickson ("Melrose Place").

Disgruntled actor Eddie (Erickson) plays children's favorite TV character, Mulligan the Rabbit, but he is itching to ditch the bunny suit in favor of more dramatic roles. He is also tired of living the bachelor lifestyle with his loser friend, Scott (Zack Ward "A Christmas Story"), who can't hold down a job. On his way to an important audition for a big feature film, Eddie crashes his car into pretty single mother and widow Annie (Garth). Immediately at odds, the two seem doomed to be enemies from the start.

Then, Eddie meets Annie's six-year-old daughter Taylor (Dannika Northcott "All My Children"), a lovable little girl who adores Mulligan and is tragically losing her eyesight. Trying to be nice, Eddie invites Taylor on set to meet Mulligan, and can't help but melt when he sees

Taylor's excitement-and Annie's sadness over her daughter's worsening condition. Never revealing he is the man in the Mulligan costume, Eddie arranges to pay for an experimental surgery that could give Taylor her vision back, and is soon falling in love with Annie to the approval of her well-meaning mother, Carol (Henner). Before the surgery, however, Eddie's manager Dick (Willard) helps him land a coveted starring role that could give him a chance to hang up the bunny ears for good, but might force him to lose Annie forever. Will he hop into his new career, or make Annie his leading lady?

"Accidentally In Love" is an MNG Films Ireland Production in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer. Randy Pope and Mary Callery are the co-executive producers and Brian J. Gordon and James Wilberger are the producers. David Burton Morris directed from a script by Peter Facinelli and Charles Thomas Daniels. Story by Peter Facinelli.
