A LOVE TO REMEMBER, a romantic comedy on UPtv, follows a San Francisco gal who tries to go on a date, only to learn that the man was in an accident, and his doctor now thinks they’re married. A LOVE TO REMEMBER is wholesome, funny and nicely paced, with a strong moral worldview about being honest with family and friends, and little objectionable content.
Tenley is an easy-going, plant-loving horticulturalist who lives with her best friend, Cammy, in San Francisco. It’s clear from the opening sequence that Tenley cares about being polished in her appearance and her work with sustainable practices like growing her own food and things of that sort. For a year, Tenley has been chatting with a guy named Jared, whom she met on an online environmental community chatroom. Cammy, being the best friend she is, encourages Tenley to call him and ask him on a date, and she does! However, before the date, Tenley runs into a man who gets her attention while at a restaurant, but she thinks nothing of it at the time.
Tenley goes to the dinner date to see Jared, but after waiting for some time, she realizes he’s not coming. Frustrated, Tenley calls Jared, prepared to give him a piece of her mind, but instead, a doctor answers and states that Jared was in an accident and is now lying unconscious in the hospital. At some point during the conversation, the doctor gets the idea that Tenley is Jared’s wife!
When Tenley appears at the hospital to check on her almost-date, she makes an effort to say that there’s been a mistake: she’s not really married to Jared. Jared’s family appears on the scene ready to dote on him, when a familiar character enters, who is the guy Tenley had a connection with at the restaurant prior to her date with Jared! Apparently, his name is Everett, and he’s Jared’s best friend.
With such a rush of emotions and confusion, Tenley doesn’t get the best opportunity to tell everyone in Jared’s life she’s not married to him. To top it off, the company Jared runs with Everett is going under fast, but there might be a way Tenley can help.
When will Tenley come clean and tell the truth?
