World Premiere Saturday, October 17 at 9 PM ET/PT on Hallmark Channel
Poppy Summerall (Ashley Williams) is hired near Halloween as a temporary nanny by Ryan Lawson (Sam Jaeger), a widowed, work-obsessed executive. Through a series of adventures, the eternally optimistic Poppy sets out to teach Ryan and his two young children, Zoe and Zack, what’s important in life – unconditional love, family and the joy of everyday occurrences. As Halloween approaches she finds herself also becoming drawn to their dad.
Poppy, a free-spirited young woman who’s afraid of commitment, has gone through a series of failed attempts at romance and career success. As the geek-chic owner of a tech company, Ryan is immersed in preparations to launch his latest app at a major business presentation — on Halloween night. Working constantly, Ryan continues to disappoint Zoe and Zach, neglecting their emotional needs and missing out on their lives. Eagerly anticipating Halloween, Zoe and Zach are sad that Ryan will be too busy to celebrate the holiday with them.
When Poppy and Ryan meet, they share an undeniable chemistry.
