UP will be airing the return of "Melrose Place"-star Heather Locklear to the small screen with the premiere of the movie, "The Game of Love," scheduled on Sunday, May 15 at 7 p.m. ET.

The feature film also stars Tom Stevens of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days," Lochlyn Munro of "White Chicks," Milo Shandel of "Mr. Young," and Emily Tennant of "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants."

Barbara Fisher, SVP for original programming at UP said there's a lot of humor and love sprinkled all throughout the movie.

"Heather Locklear leads this talented ensemble cast as a smart and successful businesswoman who can't seem to shake her feelings for her ex-husband played by Lochlyn Munro," she said in a press release.

"Their romance radiates on-screen as they face off on the fate of the team, their family, and their undeniable chemistry."

In "The Game of Love," Heather Locklear stars as Frankie, the ex-wife of Munro's Jake Cornell, the owner of the Seattle Cougars basketball team. He appears to still carry a torch for Frankie even if he's burying his head in his career.

But Frankie also has a secret: she's still very much attracted to her former husband, even if she hates his guts. Then as fate would have it, Frankie takes control of the team.

"Now that they are no longer together, Jake and Frankie, along with their two adult children Barton (Tom Stevens) and Alexandria (Emily Tennant), disagree on the future of the team," the synopsis added. "Jake's about to lose the one thing he loves the most - the Seattle Cougars - to the other love of his life, Frankie."

"The Game of Love" is produced by UP Entertainment and Odyssey Media, in association with Daro Film Distribution, Copper Beeches Inc. and Telvan Productions.

The TV movie is directed by Farhad Mann on a script written by Brian Levant.
