NOT THE ROMANTIC INTERLUDE ONE EXPECTS

HALLMARK CHANNEL KICKS OFF "COUNTDOWN TO VALENTINE'S DAY" WITH "A VALENTINE'S DATE," A STAR-STUDDED HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE FEBRUARY 4

Elisa Donovan ("In Gayle We Trust"), Brad Rowe ("General Hospital"), Tom Skerritt ("Brothers & Sisters"), John Schneider ("Desperate Housewives," "Hot in Cleveland"), Tracey Gold ("Growing Pains") and Fred Willard ("Modern Family," "Accidentally in Love") star in "A Valentine's Date," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere, Friday, February 4 (9 p.m. ET/PT, 8c).

February 14 is a day of hearts and flowers and sweet sentiments, unless you are Laura Conners and Dylan Hackett, former sweethearts and spouses on the verge of divorce. Laura, a busy bank executive has moved her daughter Kelsey to New York to restart their lives after separating from her husband and childhood sweetheart Dylan, who still resides in Texas. Laura's been so immersed in her job, she has conveniently forgotten to sign the divorce papers buried at the bottom of her purse. Since Laura and Kelsey moved to New York six years ago, Dylan has seen his daughter on a mere handful of occasions. He's had enough. Dylan sues Laura for custody, forcing her to return to Texas.At the hearing, the pair begin bickering, forcing a Texas State Family Court Judge to order a cooling off period to give Dylan and Laura a chance to think about what's most important - Kelsey. The judge re-sets the custody hearing for February 14. Now Laura, Dylan and Kelsey have a Valentine's date to remember what made them a loving family, so that everyone's heart can be happy once more.

"A Valentine's Date" is executive produced by Barry Barnholtz, Zelma Kiwi and Jeffrey Schenck, produced by Michael Feifer and co-produced by Peter Sullivan. The movie is based on original material by Jeffrey Schenck and Peter Sullivan. "A Valentine's Date" is directed by Michael Feifer from a screenplay by Michael Feifer and Peter Sullivan.
