PRODUCTION IS COMPLETED ON "SAFE HARBOR," A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE STARRING TREAT WILLIAMS AND NANCY TRAVIS

Production has wrapped on "Safe Harbor," a Hallmark Channel original movie starring Treat Williams ("Everwood") and Nancy Travis ("The Jane Austen Book Club") in the lead roles, in Los Angeles. The film is a story about a couple about to set sail around the world who agree to take a couple of juvenile delinquents under their wing and in the process learn about hope, second chances and living their dreams. "Safe Harbor" is based on a true story and is set to air on the family-friendly network in 2009.

Doug (Williams) and Robbie Smith (Travis) are a happily married couple about to retire and spend their days cruising around the world on their sailboat, the Molly Marie. Before they have the chance to leave, however, their good friend, Judge David Roberts (Orsen Bean, "How I Met Your Mother"), asks them to care for two teenaged boys he sentenced to juvenile hall. The facility is currently at capacity and instead of being remanded to county jail, the judge tells the Smiths that the boys can help them prepare their boat for sailing day. The Smiths agree and soon take on a third and then a fourth boy.

As the story unfolds, the Smiths are faced with a variety of challenges from the boys ranging from simple back talk to a more serious boat fire. Ultimately, however, Doug and Robbie see positive changes in the four young men who are now reluctant to leave their new "family." Doug and Robbie also see changes in themselves as they rethink their sailing trip, their decision not to have children and what their future now holds.

"Safe Harbor" is a Hallmark Channel presentation of Daniel L. Paulson Productions in association with Bright World LLC. Dan Paulson ("Pictures of Hollis Woods") is the executive producer; Norton Wright ("Night of the Wolf") is the co-executive producer. Jerry Jameson ("Last Flight Out") directed from a script by Josef Anderson ("China Beach"); the two also co-executive produced the film.
