Sundance Now Gets Original Comedy; Hallmark Original Returns for Season 2 in January

The Lovers

Acclaimed Sundance Now Original romantic comedy The Lovers is set to premiere in the U.S. and Canada with two episodes on Thursday, December 7, exclusively on Sundance Now and AMC+, with additional episodes dropping weekly on both platforms. Set in Belfast, Northern Ireland, The Lovers is a sexy, funny, fight-y love story about two people who appear to be utterly wrong for each other - yet may just be utterly right.

The six-part series follows Janet (Roisin Gallagher, The Fall, The Dry), a bad-tempered, hilarious, Belfast supermarket worker who couldn't give a s--t about much of anything at all, including her life, and Seamus (Singer/Songwriter and Critics Choice(R) Awards-nominee Johnny Flynn, Emma., Lovesick, Genius), a handsome, self-centered, political broadcaster with what looks to be a perfect London life and a celebrity girlfriend. When Seamus unexpectedly drops into Janet's world (literally over the wall and into her backyard) they instantly clash - and yet also find themselves inextricably drawn to each other... SAG(R) Award-nominee Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones, Suits) also features in the series as Janet's supermarket boss, Philip, and Alice Eve (Bombshell, Star Trek Into Darkness) plays Frankie, Seamus' girlfriend.




The Way Home

The Way Home, Hallmark Channel's critically acclaimed, original hit primetime drama series returns for its sophomore season on Sunday, January 21 (9 p.m. ET/PT), the network announced. Andie MacDowell (Maid, Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove), Chyler Leigh (Supergirl, Grey's Anatomy), Evan Williams (Blonde, Versailles), Sadie Laflamme-Snow (The Apprentice), Alex Hook (I Am Frankie), Al Mukadam (Pretty Hard Cases, The Detail), Jefferson Brown (Masters of Romance, Slasher), David Webster (Luckiest Girl Alive, In the Dark) and Siddarth Sharma (Homeschooled, In the Dark) reprise their roles in the multigenerational family drama that captivated viewers from the premiere episode.

In the first season, the multigenerational family drama introduced viewers to Kat Landry (Leigh), her 15-year-old daughter Alice (Laflamme-Snow) and Kat's mother Del (MacDowell), three generations of women who are strong, willful and independent. After being estranged for nearly two decades following the unsolved disappearance of Kat's eight-year-old brother Jacob (Remy Smith) and untimely death of family patriarch Colton Landry (Brown) that prompted Kat to move away from her Canadian farm town of Port Haven, Kat moves back with Alice when she finds herself at a crossroads in life. Shortly after arriving, Alice unwittingly discovers the ability to travel between the past and present via a pond on the family's land. Soon, mother and daughter become determined to unearth the truth about these past tragedies and attempt to change the course of events. Elliot (Williams), Kat's childhood friend who always held a torch for her, is there in the present to help guide both of them in their journey, as well as in the past for Alice as his teen self (Webster). Season two starts where the shocking season one finale left off and put viewers on the edge of their seats - with Kat exclaiming to Del that she knows what happened to Jacob. As Kat continues her quest to find Jacob and bring him home, mother and daughter uncover unexpected revelations about their origins that bring answers to some questions while new ones are raised.
