LISA WHELCHEL AND KIM FIELDS REUNITE IN "FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE" A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE JULY 19

Antonio Cupo, Edward Ruttle and Alicia Josipovic Co-Star; Based on the Novel For Better Or For Worse By Diann Hunt

"Facts of Life" alumnae Lisa Whelchel and Kim Fields reunite in "For Better Or For Worse," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere Saturday, July 19, 2014 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C.) This heartwarming film is an adaptation of the bestselling novel For Better Or For Worse by Diann Hunt. Antonio Cupo ("Hats Off To Christmas!"), Edward Ruttle ("Christmas Rescue") and Alicia Josipovic ("Degrassi: The Next Generation") co-star in this romantic comedy about a woman who learns that opening herself up to a second chance at love may allow her to find true happiness again.

"To have Lisa Whelchel and Kim Fields reunite is a big TV event. Hallmark Channel is the perfect place to see these iconic stars together again," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming for Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel.

Opposites attract when Wendy (Whelchel) a wedding coordinator and Marco (Cupo) a divorce attorney find their lives suddenly intertwined. Wendy is finally settling into the single life after struggling with the death of her husband. After a difficult season of grief, she's taken over the family business of coordinating the town's most beautiful and memorable weddings with the help of her friend and co-worker Roseanne (Fields). Wendy's business and values are challenged, however, when the charming and incredibly irritating Marco opens shop as a divorce attorney right next to her wedding chapel. Although Wendy will stop at nothing to promote her marriage business over Marco's divorce business, she must form an alliance with Marco after her son Collin (Ruttle) announces his unexpected engagement to Marco's daughter Sophia (Josipovic). As Wendy grows closer to Marco, she begins to realize that if she shields herself from the pain of love lost, she may prevent herself from experiencing true love in the future.
