A frontier town is fueled by crime and corruption until a strong-willed heroine and her friends, including legendary lawman Wyatt Earp and gunfighter Doc Holliday, take a stand for justice to see who will be left standing in "Hannah's Law," a Hallmark Movie Channel Original produced by Nomadic Pictures Productions 3 and Sony Pictures Television, premiering on the network in 2012.

From orphan to bounty hunter, tough-minded Hannah Beaumont doesn't take lip from anyone. Only in her mid-twenties, Hannah is driven by a soul-consuming mission to track down and bring to justice the McMurphy gang who brutally murdered her parents and young brother. Comfortable as a mercenary, Hannah's fierce independence keeps the people in her life at a distance: Isom Dart, the father figure who taught Hannah everything he knows about shooting and hunting men, handsome admirer and suitor Wyatt Earp, mysterious Doc Holliday and Hannah's best friend Stagecoach Mary. But when Hannah and her friends prove to the McMurphy gang that getting into Dodge is easy, but getting out will be hell, a shocking secret is revealed that will change Hannah's life forever.
