Surround Sound and Video Description
Julia Roberts (�Ocean�s Twelve,� �Closer�) and Richard Gere (�Chicago,� �Unfaithful�) star in an unlikely tale of romance and renewal, in �Pretty Woman,� airing SATURDAY, APRIL 22 (8:00-
11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts), who makes her living as a prostitute on Hollywood Boulevard, runs into what she thinks could be the man of her dreams, though at first she doesn�t recognize him as such. A wealthy but ruthless businessman, Edward Lewis (Richard Gere) is a takeover shark who doesn�t realize he�s venturing out of familiar waters when he proposes that Vivian spend not just the night, but the whole week with him, so that he doesn�t have to make the social circuit solo. Slowly the two draw things from each other -- and from within themselves -- that make them hope, against their own skeptical natures, that maybe there are fairy tale endings in life after all.
Starring in �Pretty Woman� are Richard Gere as Edward Lewis, Julia Roberts as Vivian Ward, Ralph Bellamy as James Morse, Jason Alexander (TV�s �Malcolm in the Middle,� �Monk�) as Philip Stuckey, Laura San Giacomo (TV�s �Just Shoot Me,� �The Stand�) as Kit, Alex-Hyde White (TV�s �Without a Trace�) as David Morse, Amy Yasbeck (�The Mask�) as Elizabeth Stuckey, Elinor Donahue (TV�s �Cold Case,� �The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement�) as Bridget and Hector Elizondo (�The Celestine Prophecy�) as Barney Thompson.
