Pascale Hutton and Ryan Paevey star as exes who reunite when he coaches her child’s football team. Hallmark posted a video to Facebook to promote the movie.

New Hallmark movie
In the movie, Pascale Hutton plays single mother Erin, whose 12-year-old daughter (played by Kiera Powers) is obsessed with football. When Erin comes to watch one of her daughter’s flag football practices, she is surprised to run into her ex-boyfriend Mike (played by Ryan Paevey).
A pro football player, Mike has returned home following an injury that may cost him his chance at a championship. When Mike is called on to coach the flag football team, he and Erin begin spending a lot of time together.
Old feelings resurface but their relationship is put in jeopardy when Mike gets a chance to return to his professional career just in time for the championship game.
Pascale Hutton plays Rosemary Coulter on the hit Hallmark series When Calls the Heart. She has also appeared in the Hallmark movies You Had Me at Aloha (2021), We Wish You a Married Christmas (2022), My One & Only (2019), Wedding of Dreams (2018), The Perfect Bride (2017), Summer of Dreams (2016), and Recipe For Love (2014).
Before joining Hallmark, Hutton played FBI special agent Abby Corrigan on the sci-fi series Sanctuary and Krista Ivarson on the TV drama Arctic Air.
Ryan Paevey played Nathan West on General Hospital from 2013 to 2018. He has starred in 14 Hallmark movies, including Unleashing Mr. Darcy (2016), Harvest Love (2017), Hope at Christmas (2018), From Friend to Fiancé (2019), Christmas at the Plaza (2019), Don’t Go Breaking My Heart (2021), A Little Daytime Drama (2021), and Coyote Creek Christmas.
In a 2021 Facebook Live appearance, Paevey shared what he likes about Hallmark.
“Hallmark is really kind of keyed into an equation that really works,” he said. “We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel. If repetitive and overly sweet are the worst things that can be leveled against you, I think you’re doing okay.”
Fourth Down and Love will premiere on Hallmark Channel on Saturday, September 9 at 8/7c.
