October Kiss is a brand new original movie that debuted on the Hallmark Channel last night. This fall, Saturday nights in front of the television is the place to be, with Hallmark’s new lineup of good movies that are sure to light up the holidays. October Kiss, which was previously titled Temporarily Yours, is directed by Lynne Stopkewich and written by MacKenzie Austin. The cast stars Ashley Williams as Poppy, Sam Jaeger as Ryan, Vincent Cole as Mike, Miranda Frigon as Abigail, Hannah Cheramy as Zoe, and Kiefer O’Reilly as Zach. October Kiss centers around Poppy, a temporary nanny that has been hired to care for a busy widower’s two children.
Plus, Poppy’s ability to make the home a cozy place — with her talent for decorating and her scrumptious recipes — endears Zoe and Zach to her even more. But, she is not only making a connection with the children, she also sets her eyes on Ryan. Their daily activities seem to be bringing Poppy and Ryan closer together, until another woman shows up with the goal of nabbing Ryan all for herself.
The Hallmark Channel, often referred to as the “heart of TV,” offers wholesome entertainment for the entire family to enjoy. With the barrage of sex and violence that is flooding TV channels, the Hallmark Channel offers just the kind of positive programming needed for families. With the holidays just around the corner, Hallmark fans will enjoy the colorful autumn scenes in the movie. October Kiss is the third movie in Hallmark’s “Fall Harvest” lineup. The Inquisitr has reported on the two previous movies: Harvest Moon and Autumn Dreams.
October Kiss’ Ashley Williams is a well-known actress who has appeared on Broadway. Raised in Westchester County, New York, along with her sister and fellow actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Ashley knew that she would become a talented actress someday.

From there, she has appeared in numerous movies, including Lifetime’s The Front and Him and Us. She has also starred in the TV series Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, The Good Wife, and How I Met Your Mother. Ashley Williams, also known as Ashley Churchill Williams, is married with a son.
