JEFF DANIELS AND MARLEE MATLIN STAR IN "SWEET NOTHING IN MY EAR," A NEW "HALLMARK HALL OF FAME" PRESENTATION TO BE BROADCAST SUNDAY, APRIL 20 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

Multiple Emmy Award-Winner Joseph Sargent ("Miss Rose White," "Caroline?," "Love Is Never Silent") Is the Director

Multiple Golden Globe Award winner Jeff Daniels ("The Squid and the Whale," "Something Wild," "The Purple Rose of Cairo") and Academy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Marlee Matlin ("Children of a Lesser God") star in SWEET NOTHING IN MY EAR, a new "Hallmark Hall of Fame" presentation about a married couple dealing with separate realities when their only child loses his ability to hear, to be broadcast Sunday, April 20 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Multiple Emmy Award-winner Joseph Sargent ("Miss Rose White," "Caroline?" "Love Is Never Silent," all "Hallmark Hall of Fame" presentations) is the director.

Laura and Dan Miller (Matlin, Daniels) have been happily married, as well as best friends, for many years, but their relationship begins to change when their only son, Adam (Noah Valencia), loses his hearing at the age of four. Laura, who is deaf herself, sees this occurrence as a minor problem, something that she has dealt with her whole life. Dan, on the other hand, at first agrees with her but starts to realize that, with surgery, his son could regain his hearing and live a more normal life.

Tempers flare and frustrations mount as Dan investigates the surgery and its pros and cons. Laura is dead set against it and makes that very clear, even as Dan begins to favor the procedure for his child. Locked in their own worlds, the couple must find a way to mend their differences and make the best decision for Adam's future.

Jeff Daniels' extensive feature credits include "Terms of Endearment," "The Purple Rose of Cairo," "Heartburn," "Radio Days," "Arachnophobia," "Dumb & Dumber," "Fly Away Home," "101 Dalmatians," "My Favorite Martian," "The Hours," "Gods and Generals," "The Squid and the Whale" and "Goodnight and Good Luck." He made his television debut in Lanford Wilson's "Fifth of July." His other television credits include the movies "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" and "The Goodbye Girl." He also starred in the "Hallmark Hall of Fame" presentation "Redwood Curtain." Daniels founded the Purple Rose Theatre Company in Chelsea, Mich., his hometown.

Marlee Matlin's television credits include the series "CSI: New York," "Judging Amy" and "Picket Fences," on the Network, "Reasonable Doubts," "Seinfeld," "ER," "The Practice," "The West Wing," "Law & Order: SVU," "Nip/Tuck," "The L Word" and "My Name is Earl." Her additional feature film credits include "Two Shades of Blue," "When Justice Fails" and "Hear No Evil." Matlin became deaf at the age of 18 months after having Roseola Infantum. She first appeared on the stage at the age of 7 as Dorothy in a school production of "The Wizard of Oz."

SWEET NOTHING IN MY EAR is a Hallmark Hall of Fame production. Brent Shields ("Pictures of Hollis Woods") and Emmy Award winner Marian Rees ("Miss Rose White," "Love Is Never Silent") are the executive producers; Emmy Award winner Anne Hopkins ("Miss Rose White") is the producer. Steven Sachs wrote the script based on his play of the same title.
