FOR A LONE RIDER TO FIND HIS HOME ON THE RANGE, HE'LL HAVE TO FACE THE FIGHT OF HIS LIFE THREE-TIME EMMY(R) NOMINEE MEREDITH BAXTER, KEVIN SORBO AND THREE-TIME EMMY(R) NOMINEE GAIL O'GRADY JOIN WES BROWN AND GREG EVIGAN ON THE RUGGEDTRAILS OF THE WILD WEST IN "SHADOW ON THE MESA," A HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL ORIGINAL WORLD PREMIERE MARCH 23

A hidden family history leads a lone gunfighter to meet his long-lost father in the midst of a violent range war in "Shadow on the Mesa," a Hallmark Movie Channel Original World Premiere, Saturday, March 23 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). In "Shadow on the Mesa" starring Wes Brown ("Deception"), Kevin Sorbo ("Hercules"), three-time Emmy(R)-nominee Gail O'Grady ("NYPD Blue"), three-time Emmy(R)-nominee Meredith Baxter ("Family Ties," "A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story") and Greg Evigan ("After the Fall"), a skilled but stoic bounty hunter in the rugged American West finds the family he never knew when he journeys to discover the story behind his mother's murder - and demand justice.

Bounty hunter Wes Rawlins (Brown) is a man of few words and the American West's quickest draw. A silent but calculatingly honest man, Wes is devastated when his mother is brutally murdered by a couple of outlaws who are still on the run. Determined to solve the crime and bring justice to his family, Wes leaves his adopted grandparents (Baxter and Barry Corbin, "The Closer") and sets off to find the father he never knew, a rancher named Ray Eastman (Sorbo). Ray is in the midst of an increasingly bloody feud with a corrupt neighbor, Pete Dowdy (Evigan), who greedily wants to take all of Ray's land. As Wes gets to know his father and two half-siblings, Ray's deceitful wife, Mona (O'Grady) holds a secret that fuels the war to a colossal final showdown. When Wes jumps in to defend his new family, he learns the truth behind his mother's murder and soon his life will never be the same.

"Shadow on the Mesa" is a Mediapool Production in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer. Matthew Fitzsimons, Amanda Phillips Atkins and Randy Pope are co-executive producers. David S. Cass, Sr. directed from a script by Lee Martin.
