JODI LYN O'KEEFE, JUSTIN BRUENING, CONSTANCE MARIE AND ERIC ROBERTS STAR IN 'CLASS,' A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WHICH HAS BEGUN PRODUCTION

Will Premiere on Hallmark Channel in 2010

Jodi Lynn O'Keefe ("Prison Break"), Justin Bruening ("Knight Rider," "General Hospital"), Constance Marie ("George Lopez") and Eric Roberts ("Heroes") have been cast to star in "Class," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie which has begun production for presentation on Hallmark Channel in 2010. It's the story of a well-to-do law student who is given the assignment to help a young, working class woman facing a tough life situation, and how the experience ultimately brings profound lessons and other surprises to both of them.

Whitt Sheffield (Bruening) is close to graduating from The Sheffield Law School with his law degree and then moving into his father's company as a corporate lawyer. He is given an assignment in his Public Interest Law class to help a disadvantaged, single mother, Kylie Burch (O'Keefe), find a job with benefits but he doesn't at first understand why he needs to even bother with this assignment since he's going into corporate law. His teacher, Professor Victoria Corrales (Marie), quickly makes it clear to him that it's a requirement for him to graduate. Kylie Burch is an attractive young woman who can't hold a job, primarily because her son is ill which forces her to leave work often to get him medical attention. Whitt gets started on his assignment but is immediately challenged in his efforts to establish a connection with Kylie who doesn't want to be thought of as a charity case.

But soon a series of incidents and unexpected events lead each one to realize that they're more alike than they had at first realized, and that they both have a lot to learn from and appreciate about one another. Eric Roberts plays Whitt's demanding father, Benjamin Sheffield.

"Class" is being produced by Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer. Erik Heiberg and Lincoln Lageson are the producers. Dave Cass is directing from a script written by Pam Wallace.
