Katrina Bowden (“30 Rock,” “Public Morals”) and Thomas Beaudoin (“The Blacklist”) star in “Love on the Slopes,” a new original movie premiering January 6 (9 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s popular, annual “Winterfest” programming event.
About The Movie:
Alex Burns (Bowden) copyedits for a travel magazine but has always wanted to be a writer. Now the magazine is holding a contest and the winner not only lands a spot on the writing staff, but also gets a first-class ticket to anywhere in the world! Alex pitches a story about extreme sports photographer Cole Taylor (Beaudoin), but her editor suggests she also write from the angle of a non-adventurer trying risky sports herself. Her boyfriend Barton (Anthony Konechny, “The Christmas Train”) is supportive, but doesn’t see Alex as the daring type.
Determined to realize her writing aspirations, Alex heads to Colorado, where she meets Cole and convinces him to be her guide in exchange for helping him at his gallery. Though Alex is a klutz, she’s soon hiking, skiing and ziplining, all as Cole photographs her exhilaration and they fall in love. But when Barton comes and lets it slip that Cole is part of Alex’s article, Cole feels betrayed.
Later though, after reading Alex’s story, Cole is happy for her, and even happier when she returns with a ticket and an invitation to join her on an adventure, sure to be the first of many!
