Let’s take a look at what’s coming to Hallmark Movies Now in October.

October 5: A Paris Proposal and Autumn in the City

October 5 starts with A Paris Proposal starring Alexa PenaVega and Nicholas Bishop.

Anna (PenaVega) is an account manager for a New York City advertising agency who has an opportunity to land what’s possibly the biggest client of her career, Durand Diamonds. However, her boss sends both her and her colleague Sebastian (Bishop) to Paris to make the pitch and seal the deal.

Their work styles clash, as Anna plays it by the book, and Sebastian is a bit more extravagant, which will land them in some trouble. Plus, Paris is an emotional place for Anna, as she and her now ex-husband honeymooned there at the start of their short-lived marriage.

In a misunderstanding, Durand believes Sebastian and Anna are married and are extremely excited to have a real-life couple in charge of the creative vision of their brand.

As usual, things don’t always go according to plan, and their fake relationship becomes a bit harder to maintain when Sebastian’s family gets involved. Will they be able to secure the deal, and save their professional lives and their budding romance? Viewers will have to tune in to find out.

Also hitting Hallmark Movies Now on October 5 is Autumn in the City, starring Aimee Teegarden, Evan Roderick, and Colleen Wheeler.

During her time going between different temp jobs, she meets Austin Edwards (Roderick), an aspiring writer looking to make a name for himself away from his famous journalist mother (Wheeler).

Piper’s sunny spirit clashes with Austin’s jaded personality, but the magic of autumn will bring them closer together. Eventually, Piper realizes her passion is illustration, and she and Austin come up with an idea to work together and possibly learn that what they’re actually looking for is love.

Successful entrepreneur Maggie (DeLoach) returns home for the reading of a will and learns that she has inherited half of her aunt’s famous maple candy business.

October 19: A Royal Christmas Crush, Christmas Class Reunion, Inventing the Christmas Prince, Lights, Camera, Christmas!, Christmas at Graceland, and Road Trip Romance
