IN AN OUTLAW GHOST TOWN, TWO AGING GUNMEN REALIZE THEY HAVE MUCH TO LEARN ABOUT THE OLD WEST � �PRISON BREAK�S� STACY KEACH STARS WITH PATRICK DUFFY IN GRITTY �DESOLATION CANYON,� A TWO-HOUR HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE

A Martinez, Kenneth Johnson, Kelly Overton and Courtney Gains Also Star; Premieres July 1

Two long-time friends, an aging lawman and a retired ex-gunman, have their friendship tested when they join forces to hunt down the gunman�s son, a bank-robber who has kidnapped his own son from his mother in �Desolation Canyon,� a Hallmark Channel Original movie premiering Saturday, July 1 (9/8 c).

Golden Globe winner Stacy Keach stars as Samuel Kendrick, a retired gunfighter living in an isolated cabin in Desolation Canyon with his common law wife. Patrick Duffy stars as worn-around-the-edges Sheriff Tomas �Swede� Lundstrom, an old friend who fought with Sam on the Union side in the Civil War where Sam first earned his reputation as a deadeye shot. Following the war, both wild young men rode with an outlaw gang, but have subsequently reformed with Swede switching to the right side of the law. The two men are reunited on a mission to track down Sam�s estranged outlaw son, Johnny Kendrick, in an effort to save him from deeper trouble and possibly a violent death.

The skillful old gunman leads the hunt for his son, hoping to keep him alive. Danger looms as the men become trapped by the outlaw gang that Johnny is riding with.

A Martinez, Kenneth Johnson, Kelly Overton and Courtney Gains also star in the gritty drama. �Desolation Canyon� is a Hallmark Entertainment presentation of an Alpine Medien Production in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Robert Halmi, Jr. and Larry Levinson are executive producers. Nick Lombardo, Matt Fitzsimons and Betsy Newman are co-executive producers. Brian J. Gordon and Erik Olson produce.
