THE TRUE STORY OF A FLORDIA COUPLE HELPING TROUBLED BOYS CHART A NEW COURSE FOR THEIR LIVES

THREE-TIME GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINEE TREAT WILLIAMS AND NANCY TRAVIS STAR IN 'SAFE HARBOR,' A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE PREMIERING MAY 30

Beloved Character Actor Orson Bean, Charlie McDermott, Reiley McClendon and Sam Jones III Also Star

A husband and wife come to realize that waves of change can begin with a single ripple in the Hallmark Channel Original Movie "Safe Harbor," premiering Saturday, May 30 (9/8c). Based on a true story, "Safe Harbor" stars three-time Golden Globe Award nominee Treat Williams ("Everwood") and Nancy Travis ("The Bill Engvall Show") as a sea-loving couple who forgo their long-planned retirement when they find a new purpose in helping troubled teenagers turn their lives around.

Doug Smith (Williams) and his wife Robbie (Travis) are a month away from embarking on their dream retirement: Setting sail together and exploring the world on their boat, the Molly Marie. An unexpected visit from Judge Roberts (Orson Bean, "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman"), an old friend of Doug's, results in the couple reluctantly agreeing to look after some kids for a few days, until room opens up for them in juvenile hall. For Luke (Reiley McClendon, "The Flyboys"), David (Charlie McDermott, "Frozen River") and Billy (Sam Jones III, "Smallville"), living and working on a rich couple's boat doesn't seem all that much better than juvie. But as a few days turn into a few months and more, Doug and Robbie help the boys get back on track, and in turn, the boys will show their mentors that the real treasure isn't buried on some far-away island � it's right there in the harbor.

The real Safe Harbor Boys Home, located in Jacksonville, FL, is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary. The Smiths utilize the waterfront as a residential and educational facility for boys ages 15 � 17, and welcome participants from all over the country. Many of the boys are troubled, fatherless or have lost one or more parents to death. They have few privileges when they arrive, but gain their desired rewards, along with self-respect and camaraderie, by accumulating 'points' for proper behavior and program involvement, including maintaining or repairing the boats, engaging in community service and continuing their education to earn a high school diploma. By providing the boys with a variety of vocational training, spiritual fulfillment, education and life skills, the program prepares the boys for a fulfilling and productive future.

"Safe Harbor" is a Daniel L. Paulson Production in association with Bright World LLC. Dan Paulson is the executive producer, and Josef Anderson, Jerry Jameson and Norton Wright are the co-executive producers. Kyle Clark and Marta M. Mobley are the producers. Jerry Jameson directed from a script by Josef Anderson.
