Alex and Carlos PenaVega’s new Hallmark Channel was a long time in the making. The husband-and-wife pair originally tried to make their upcoming movie Love in the Limelight four years ago, but things didn’t work out. This time around, the couple managed to make it happen, successfully bringing the story of a romance between a former boy band member and his long-time fan and pen pal to the screen.
