Romance in the Air is telecast Saturday, August 1, at 9 p.m. on Hallmark Channel. Casting Hallmark Channel favorites Cindy Busby and Torrance Coombs (both pictured above and below) as childhood friends rediscovering love as adults in Romance in the Air was a good move by the network, as these two are actually old friends and former co-stars. Busby, who in recent years has become a Hallmark staple, and Coombs (last seen in 2018's Royally Ever After), had previously worked together on the Canadian series Heartland, so when Busby shared the news of their reunion on social media, the buzz started. "I shared the trailer and people were like 'Oh my gosh, Ashley Stanton and Chase Powers are together again -- it's so exciting!'", beamed Busby in an exclusive MediaVillage interview. "I think people get attached to certain characters and that show definitely has a cult following, so when they see you together later on in something else, they get excited to support the project which makes it even more special.
