AMBER TAMBLYN STARS IN "THE RUSSELL GIRL," A NEW "HALLMARK HALL OF FAME" PRESENTATION, WHICH HAS BEGUN PRODUCTION IN TORONTO FOR BROADCAST ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

Academy Award Nominee and Tony Award Nominee Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio ("The Color of Money," "Man of La Mancha"), Two-Time Tony Award Winner Jennifer Ehle ("The Real Thing," "The Coast of Utopia"), Tim DeKay ("Tell Me You Love Me," "Carniv´┐Żle") And Henry Czerny ("The Tudors," "Mission Impossible") Also Star

THE RUSSELL GIRL, a new "Hallmark Hall of Fame" presentation starring Emmy Award nominee and Golden Globe Award nominee Amber Tamblyn ("Joan of Arcadia," "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," "General Hospital"), has begun production in Toronto for broadcast on the CBS Television Network. In the drama, Sarah Russell (Tamblyn), a 23-year-old aspiring medical school student, visits her loving family to share some important news but, instead, finds herself attempting to finally confront a difficult period from her past.

Academy Award nominee and Tony Award nominee Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio ("The Color of Money," "Man of La Mancha"), two-time Tony Award winner Jennifer Ehle ("The Real Thing," "The Coast of Utopia"), Tim DeKay ("Tell Me You Love Me," "Carniv´┐Żle") and Henry Czerny ("The Tudors," "Mission Impossible") also star.

Sarah Russell's rare visit from Chicago to her small hometown is a welcome surprise to her parents (Mastrantonio and DeKay), her 21-year-old brother, Daniel (Daniel Clark), and her former boyfriend, Evan (Paul Wesley). Sarah decides to withhold the true reason for her homecoming after an old conflict resurfaces during an uncomfortable encounter with Lorraine Morrisey (Ehle), who lives across the street from the Russells with her husband, Howard (Henry Czerny), and two teen-aged boys (Ben Lewis, Max Morrow). Sarah's sudden presence has a debilitating effect on Lorraine, who rebuffs Sarah's attempts to make amends. However, Sarah musters the courage to keep trying, knowing that she must finally deal with her past as a means of being able to face her future. It takes time for Lorraine to put the past behind her and to grasp that forgiving Sarah will not only ease Sarah's burden but also her own.

THE RUSSELL GIRL is a Hallmark Hall of Fame production. Brent Shields ("Candles on Bay Street," "The Magic of Ordinary Days") is the executive producer; Stefanie Epstein ("Searching for David's Heart") is co-executive producer. Jeff Bleckner ("Boston Legal," "Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story") is directing from an original script by Jill Blotevogel ("The Dead Zone," "The Twilight Zone").
