CBS will air the Hallmark Hall of Fame film “The Lost Valentine” with Betty White and Jennifer Love Hewitt on January 30 from 9 to 11 p.m.
The heartwarming tale of a cable news reporter (Hewitt) who comes to town to talk to a WWII widow (White) was shot in and around Atlanta earlier this year. White told us she was attracted to the script because it reminded her of her own relationship with late husband and “Password” game show host Allen Ludden who died in 1981.
Naturally, White’s character Caroline Thomas will have a handsome overly protective grandson (played by Sean Faris) who butts heads with Hewitt’s Susan Allison journalist character.
And Buck Rogers himself, Gil Gerard plays Neil Jr., White’s son in the tele movie while former “As the World Turns” actor Billy Magnussen will play White’s husband Neil in WWII flashbacks.
