After three years playing Melissa Peterman’s love interest Brad on the Freeform series Baby Daddy, Peter Porte learned a thing or two about having a TV family. The notoriously close-knit cast would end every episode taping with a dressing room party. So when the network decided not to renew the series earlier this year, Porte found himself "network homeless," and he didn't like it one bit. Fortunately that predicament was short lived as he was swiftly "adopted" by Hallmark Channel. “I'm glad to be here,” he told me recently while discussing his debut project for the network, the upcoming movie Love at the Shore. “I'm gathering it is a family here, too, and it's a really wonderful feeling. “I've done a few TV movies over the years and really wanted to work with Hallmark,” he continued. "I've heard so many great things about them, especially how they really take care of their cast and crews. So when this offer came in I jumped at it.”
