What’s on TV?: Emily Kinney Stars In A New Romantic Comedy ‘Love On The Sidelines’ Premiering On Hallmark Channel

by Jeff Klayman

Laurel Welk is an out of work aspiring fashion designer who lands a job as a personal assistant to superstar Quarterback Danny Holland. Holland's been sidelined with an injury and the last thing he wants is a female assistant, particularly one who knows nothing about football. But the two opposites strike a bargain and agree to work together on a trial basis. While Laurel struggles to master her job, knowing she's in way over her head, Danny struggles to maintain his star image, even though he's concerned his injury might impact his career. Things get ever more complicated when employer and employee start to notice there's more to the other than meets the eye... and what they find is love on the sidelines.

With Super Bowl Sunday and Valentine’s Day looming in the next few weeks, what could be more fun than a breezy, romantic romp combining the best of both worlds?

Fans of The Walking Dead will want to tune in to see Emily Kinney playing “personal assistant” Laurel Welk to star quarterback Danny Holland. Trouble is, she’s clueless about football and Danny, recovering from an injury is more concerned with his future in the sport.
