They portray twins on NBC’s “Days of our Lives,” although Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) and Greg Vaughan (Eric Brady) are anything but that in Hallmark Channel’s “Second Chances.” Premiering Saturday, July 27, the TV movie tells the story of 911 operator Jenny McLean (Sweeney), who along with her two kids, Luke (Benjamin Stockham) and Elsie (Charlotte Labadie), take in firefighter Jeff Sinclair (Vaughan) after he is injured on the job and the family is in desperate need of extra income as a result of Jenny’s work hours having been recently cut. As Jeff and Jenny find themselves drawn together due to circumstances beyond their control, they begin to wonder where their mutual attraction will take them.

“Second Chances” was previously titled “Two In,” when Hallmark Channel first announced the film going into production last summer. The film premieres Saturday, July 27 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on Hallmark Channel and also stars Edward Asner (“Up,” “Gargoyles”) as Buddy, Rance Howard (“A Beautiful Mind”) as Wilbur, Diego Serrano (“Another World”) as Jeff’s friend Guillermo and Dawnn Lewis (“A Different World,” “Futurama”) as Jenny’s friend Maria.
