Chesapeake Shores star Laci J. Mailey plays a woman who is unlucky in love in the new Hallmark romcom Betty’s Bad Luck in Love. The movie, which will premiere this weekend as part of Hallmark Channel’s New Year New Movies lineup, also stars Virgin River’s Marco Grazzini.
In an Instagram post, Grazzini talked about how much fun the cast and crew had making the movie.
“Truth? I’ve never, EVER, had so much fun filming like I did on this one. The perfect storm of script, director/producers & fellow castmates, where every energy was pulling in the same direction — a big ol’ laugh. And yes it’s got a lot of rom to go with the com,” he wrote in the caption.
In Betty’s Bad Luck in Love, Laci J. Mailey stars as Betty, who believes a curse placed upon her in childhood is the reason for all her failed relationships.
After a long series of calamitous relationships that always ended in disaster for her boyfriends, Betty stopped dating entirely. She has taken to playing it safe, focusing on her career while she helps to plan her best friend’s wedding.
Marco Grazzini plays Alex, a danger-seeking news photographer who becomes intrigued by Betty and asks her on a date. With encouragement from her friend, Betty decides to face her fears and go out with him. As the two spend time together — and nothing bad happens to Alex — Betty begins to wonder if she really is cursed.
But then Alex falls down a set of stairs and Betty becomes determined to track down the person who cursed her when she was a little girl.
