MARLA SOKOLOFF, MARION ROSS AND CHRISTINA PICKLES STAR IN "FLOWER GIRL," AN ORIGINAL MOVIE WHICH JUST COMPLETED PRODUCTION FOR AIR ON HALLMARK CHANNEL IN 2009
Marla Sokoloff ("The Practice"), Marion Ross ("Happy Days") and Christina Pickles ("Friends") star in "Flower Girl," an original movie about a woman who is surrounded by weddings for everyone but herself until one day she meets not one, but two possible matches and is forced to choose between her head and her heart.
"Flower Girl" has just completed production and will air on Hallmark Channel in late-2009.
Laurel Haverford (Sokoloff) runs a floral shop with her meddling grandmother, Rose (Ross), and is always planning weddings for everyone but herself. Soon, all of her friends are getting married, leaving her behind, and she begins to wonder if she will ever find Mr. Right. Suddenly, Laurel meets a doctor who knows about flowers, loves to cook and appears to be everything a girl could want. She starts to believe that's the case until an unexpected encounter with free-spirited Stephen Banks (Kieren Hutchison, "One Tree Hill") turns everything upside-down for her. Stephen's secretive about his job, takes calls privately on his cell phone while she's present and, worst of all, is apparently seeing another woman. Laurel's been warned by her good friend, Brooke (Brook Kerr, "Passions"), to forget about Stephen because he has too many "red flags," but she can't get him off her mind.
Ultimately, when both Evan and Stephen share some unexpected news, Laurel must make a tough choice between the two and decide what matters most in life.
Pickles plays Evangeline Walker, a friend of Laurel's and the owner of Evangeline's Bridal Bower.
"Flower Girl" is being produced by LG Films Production in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer; Lincoln Lageson and Eric Heiberg are the producers. Bradford May directed from a script written by Marjorie Sweeny.
