Teri Hatcher and James Tupper find love when they least expect it in the new Hallmark movie Mid-Love Crisis. The movie, which will premiere as part of Hallmark’s fall lineup, also stars June Laporte, who plays Rachel Thom on When Calls the Heart.
“Wanna find acceptance and hope even when things aren’t going as planned.?! I hope you will, watching #midlovecrisis. I’m So grateful to have shared the screen with this Lovely cast! Thanks also to an Amazing director & crew,” wrote Hatcher in an Instagram post.
New Hallmark movie
In Mid-Love Crisis, Teri Hatcher plays Mindy, a divorced teacher about to turn 50. Her daughter comes for a weekend visit with her girlfriend, who happens to be the niece of Mindy’s former boyfriend Sam (played by James Tupper). Things become even more complicated when her daughter invites Mindy’s ex-husband, played by Brian Markinson, to the festivities.
“As the weekend progresses, an assertiveness inside her awakens and Mindy finds herself not only embracing her life but discovering what it is she truly wants as she gets ready to start the next chapter,” reads a synopsis from Hallmark.
This is the second movie Hatcher has made with Hallmark Media. In 2021, she reunited with her former Desperate Housewives co-star James Denton for the romantic comedy A Kiss Before Christmas. The pair made the announcement on Hatcher’s Instagram account in a short video.
“You guys, I’m so excited,” Hatcher said. “I’m finally working again. And you want to know why it’s even more exciting?”
She pans over to show Denton sitting beside her.
“We’re back,” he says.
“Yeah, it’s a thing,” she says. “It’s a thing. Stay tuned.”
