Are you ready to run into a pile of leaves and enjoy the crisp autumn air?
Roadhouse Romance Is First Hallmark’s Fall Harvest
Kicking off Fall Harvest is Hallmark’s Roadhouse Romance. Moreover, this tradition-style romantic comedy stars Tyler Hynes (It Was Always You, Sweet Carolina), Lauren Alaina (Nashville, Road Less Traveled), Sarah Edmondson (Five Star Christmas, Salvation), Michael Teigen (Supernatural, Love, Lights, Hanukkah!), and Adil Zaidi (Merry Liddle Christmas Wedding, The Crossword Mysteries: Riddle Me Dead).
According to the synopsis, country music fan Callie (Alaina) is determined to continue her late grandfather’s legacy. Her grandpa’s BBQ is also struggling. Adding to her pain, Callie’s high school sweetheart is no longer in the picture.
However, Callie meets TV director Luke (Hynes), who is in town for a short stint. He shows her how looking forward is better than focusing on that rearview mirror.
The premiere of Hallmark’s Roadhouse Romance is on Saturday, September 11, at 9 p.m. Eastern.

According to the Hallmark synopsis, a writer goes back to the family ranch to write an article about her passion for horses. There, she discovers what ended her marriage. Moreover, she also gets insights as to why she stopped riding horses.
On July 25, Nikki posted to Instagram, “I may look like I’m deep in thought… about my character, the scene. But really I’m just thinking about french fries🍟. Something beautiful is being filmed and I’m so grateful to be a part of it. #hallmark.” When Nikki promises “something beautiful,” she means it!
It looks like Scott Porter also celebrated his birthday while they were filming! He shared on Instagram, “If you’re gonna work a 13-hour day in 90* heat on your birthday I strongly suggest a lovely breakfast with your wife and kids to start before heading to a beautiful place with gorgeous animals and incredible people to work with…OH and a SURPRISE lunch visit from your family with homemade apricot thumbprint cookies to really make your day!!! Thank you for all the well-wishes everyone, every single one are so appreciated. I hope you all had incredible days as well! ❤️ ✌🏼 🎂”
