About “Surprised by Love”

  • Directed by Robert Iscove. He’s still alive, this appears to be the last movie he directed. According to IMDB he has 64 directing credits including “Smart Cookies,” “Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Diff’rent Strokes”, “From Justin to Kelly,” and the 1999 teen rom-com “She’s All That.”
  • Written by Neal H. Dobrofsky and Tippi Dobrofsky.
    • These two have written a lot for Hallmark Channel including “Love Strikes Twice,” “You Had me at Aloha,” several episodes of “When Calls the Heart.” In 2020, they had written their 30th movie for Hallmark called “The Christmas Doctor” starring Holly Robinson Peete.
    • Fun fact: In 2021 they co-wrote the first original holiday movie for Peacock along with their son Spyder Dobrofsky. It was called “The Real Housewives of the North Pole” and starred Kyle Richards. There hasn’t been anything new from the Dobrofskys since then.

  • Stars Hilarie Burton (Josie) who is probably best known as playing Peyton Sawyer on One Tree Hill. Previous Hallmark movies include: “Summer Villa” and “Naughty or Nice.”
    • Back in 2019 it’s reported that Burton was “let go” from a Hallmark movie after she made requests for a more diverse cast. She was very outspoken about the bigotry from then head Bill Abbott. With all that said, we haven’t seen Burton in a Hallmark joint since 2016.
  • Paul Campbell (Gridley). Last seen in “The Cases of Mystery Lane” and last year’s “Three Wise Men and a Baby.” 
  • Tim Conway played Josie’s grandfather. Conway passed in 2017. He was a six time Primetime Emmy winner with 14 total nominations. He’s known for roles in the Carol Burnett Show, McHale’s Navy, guest spots, and tons of voice work in his later years.
