The Hallmark Channel TV movie Lead With Your Heart is about a longtime married couple, Ben and Maura, who are about to become empty nesters. Due to work, Maura has been traveling more lately which is causing more distance/stress in their marriage. Remarkably, Ben and Maura are the parents of two teenage children who care about their parents’ marriage, enough to scheme up a way to remind their parents how much they love and need each other.
The husband Ben is portrayed by William Baldwin. The wife Maura is portrayed by Kari Matchett. She’s best known for her roles on Covert Affairs (Joan Campbell), Leverage (Maggie Collins), Crash (Jules), ER (Dr. Skye Wexler), Heartland (Kate Armstrong), and 24 (Lisa Miller).
