A divorced mom jumps back into the dating scene in Hallmark Channel’s new movie Dating the Delaneys, part of its August 2022 “Fall Into Love” lineup. While Maggie’s initial adventures in romance bring mixed results, she ends up connecting in a surprising way with Michael, the single dad of her son’s friend. 

What is ‘Dating the Delaneys’ about?

When Maggie Delaney learns that her ex-husband is getting remarried, it spurs her to try dating again. With the support of her mom Barb and teen daughter Emma, she puts herself out there. Maggie also gets some help from Michael, the dad of one of her son’s friends, who volunteers to go on a practice date with her. 

Michael, a PR expert, is also on hand to help Maggie prepare for a big television interview spotlighting her bakery, Sweet Sensations. As she and Michael spend more time together, it seems like their friendship could turn into something more. Meanwhile, both Barb and Emma embark on new romances of their own. All three generations of Delaney women explore the ups and downs of modern dating, and in the process, they discover that love and romance can be found at any age.
