The Hallmark Channel is releasing a new movie ‘Love Under the Olive Tree‘ during their ‘A Little Romance’ program event.
What’s the Plot?
Nicole Cabella (Tori Anderson) is ready to implement her big new ideas to her family’s olive oil business in Northern California. She is just given control of the business when she crosses paths with Jake Brandini (Benjamin Hollingsworth). Jake is not only her childhood crush and a talented attorney but also the heir to her biggest competitor.
There is a conflict of interest when Jake learns that Nicole’s land expansion may be taking over land that belongs to his family. The two families have had a feud that has spanned decades after their grandfathers ended their combined olive oil business.
A judge decides the two can solve their fight by competing in the town’s olive oil competition, yet this causes their families’ competition to become even more heated.
Amongst the chaotic fight between families, Nicole and Jake find they aren’t so different after all. Will their new romance be able to survive when their families are competing?
