A STRUGGLING ACTOR GOES BACK TO SCHOOL TO TEACH, BUT LEARNS HIS OWN LESSON IN LOVE WHEN ERIC MABIUS AND VIRGINIA WILLIAMS STAR WITH FIVE-TIME GOLDEN GLOBE(R) AND TWO-TIME EMMY(R) NOMINEE STEFANIE POWERS AND THREE-TIME EMMY(R) NOMINEE MEREDITH BAXTER IN "READING, WRITING & ROMANCE" A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE AUGUST 10

Martin Mull and Adam Kulbersh Co-Star

A commercial actor takes on a job teaching Shakespeare to pay the bills and ends up finding his leading lady in "Reading, Writing & Romance," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere Saturday, August 10 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C). Eric Mabius ("Ugly Betty") and Virginia Williams ("Fairly Legal") star alongside five-time Golden Globe(R) and two-time Emmy(R) nominee Stefanie Powers ("Hart to Hart"), three-time Emmy(R) nominee Meredith Baxter ("Family Ties"), Martin Mull ("Two and A Half Men") and Adam Kulbersh ("Wake Up, It's Tuesday!") in this lighthearted romantic comedy.

Struggling actor Wayne Wenders (Mabius) is comically famous for starring in a low-budget commercial for Irritable Bowel Syndrome medication, a reputation he is hoping to change when he finally lands a starring role in a national root beer ad. But when the paycheck for his big break is delayed, Wayne looks for other options to pay his increasingly late rent and ends up interviewing for a gig teaching Shakespeare at the local high school. Principal Brenda Post (Powers) hires Wayne for his natural theatrical talent and enthusiasm, but Wayne is soon surprising himself with his love of the job - and for fellow English teacher Amy (Williams), an attractive woman, who is immediately impressed with Wayne's passion and his idea to teach the students with an exciting film project.

As Amy and Wayne start to fall in love against the school's strict no-fraternizing policy, they must dodge the watchful eye of Vice Principal Trautman (Kulbersh), the school's strict bully who's own crush on Amy is no secret. Harboring a vengeful grudge with Wayne, Trautman sets out to ruin his career and his relationship. But before Trautman can do any serious damage, Wayne threatens to sabotage himself when he selfishly decides to suddenly quit the teaching job early for a movie role, disappointing his parents (Mull and Baxter), his students and most of all, Amy. Now, Wayne must ultimately decide if his dreams of stardom are really worth sacrificing everything for.

"Reading, Writing & Romance," is a Mediapool Production in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer. James Wilberger is the producer. Ernie Barbarash directed from a script by Todd Mattox.
