Bethany Joy Lenz and Brett Dalton star together in Just My Type a new original movie premiering Saturday, March 28, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual Spring Fever programming event. Pop culture writer and aspiring novelist Vanessa Mills (Lenz) escapes run-ins with her ex by retreating to a quaint B&B in rural Washington. A chance meeting with the illustrious, elusive and reclusive author, Martin Clayton (Dalton), has Vanessa star-struck and determined to land an exclusive interview. With a big promotion on the line, a persistent Vanessa creates reasons to see Martin, who eventually becomes intrigued enough with her honest offer to let him finally tell his side of the story to his devoted fans. A spark ignites between them as they spend more time together during the interviews, but it’s clear they are more than literally worlds apart and that Vanessa has put her own aspirations, dreams and romantic life aside. Will she decide to go in the direction of her dreams and live the life she imagined?

Smithsonian Channel goes on an expedition through Latin America with its docu-drama Humboldt: Epic Explorer, premiering Wednesday, March 25, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. More than 200 years ago, German scientist Alexander von Humboldt spent five years traveling across the South American continent, making revolutionary discoveries about the workings of the natural world. Viewers will follow in his footsteps, delving into Humboldt’s landmark insights into human-induced climate change, evolution and continental drift.

HBO will premiere its timely documentary Kill Chain: The Cyber War on America’s Elections on Thursday, March 26, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. This film takes a chilling look into the security of election technology revealing how unprotected our voting systems really are. With the integrity of 2016’s election in question, 2020 is also at risk as malware may already be in place to disrupt aspects of the multi-faceted election system, from voter registration rolls to ballots. As more precincts rely on electronic voting machines, seemingly unrelated attacks over the past few years can be seen as part of a kill chain, in which state sponsored hackers employ cyber weapons instead of military force to undermine faith in the democratic process and the freedoms that many Americans assume are protected.
