Does it take exploring the past to find love in the future?

In this exclusive first-look photo from ABC Family's upcoming original movie My Future Boyfriend, Barry Watson and Sara Rue look like they're playing an ordinary couple enjoying a nice spring day, but there's a lot more to the story.

Pax (Watson) is unlucky in love because the concept of love is nonexistent during his time, i.e. the year 3127. After discovering a romance novel during an archeological dig, Pax decides to travel back to New Orleans in search of the author Elizabeth Barrett (Rue). Upon meeting, Elizabeth introduces Pax to life in the year 2011, filled with love, music and of course, destiny.

My Future Boyfriend premieres Sunday, April 10, at 8/7c on ABC Family.
