FRESHMAN FATHER , a new Hallmark movie airing Saturday, June 5 (9p.m. ).
The movie stars Drew Seeley, Annie Potts, and Kim Zimmer.
Prom king and queen John Patton (Seeley) and Kathy Blair (Britt Irvin, “Hot Rod”) are the perfect small-town couple.
They have everything they’ve ever wanted—including John’s full ride to Harvard University. But that all comes crashing down when Kathy gets pregnant the summer before their freshman year. Deciding to keep the baby, the couple gets married and moves to Cambridge, MA so John can pursue his dream and keep his scholarship at the Ivy League school.
However, John soon finds out that having a family while trying to ace math is harder than it seems, and he becomes overwhelmed. After failing calculus the first semester, John decides to take it again, against the advice of icy Dean Frost (Zimmer), who seems convinced that John is setting himself up for failure. Then, unhappy Kathy leaves Cambridge and her family behind after baby Adam is born.
