"Banner 4th of July" begins principal photography in North Bay, Canada and will have its Hallmark Channel World Premiere on Saturday, June 29 (9pm ET/PT, 8C), featuring two songs written and recorded by Brooke White.

"Banner 4th of July" is produced by Muse Entertainment. Michael Vickerman, Jonas Prupas, Greg Gugliotta, Michael Prupas, Joel S. Rice, and David Anselmo are the executive producers. Steve Solomos is the producer. Don McBrearty directs from a script written by Michael Vickerman.

Desiree Banner (White) may own her own record company but she has struggled to find her perfect melody since leaving the band she once headlined with her brothers Mitchell (Campbell) and Johnny (Barbuto). Her departure from the band, The Banners Project, led her into a marriage that was doomed to fail and deeply damaged her relationship with Mitchell, whom she has avoided for the past ten years. Nevertheless, when Desiree's mother, Rosalind (Ruehl), suffers a heart attack, Desiree and Mitchell rush home and join their brother Johnny to be by her side. Shortly after Desiree arrives in her hometown of Pinewood Hills, she learns that the town will face bankruptcy if it can't make a bond repayment by the July 4th Holiday. Confined to bed and hating every minute of it, Rosalind, who also happens to be Mayor of Pinewood Hills, has secretly hatched a plan to repay the town's debt. Rosalind has booked The Banners Project in a reunion concert at the town's annual Fourth of July festival. The reunion concert will be a big deal, bringing in people from all over the country. The ticket sales alone will cover the debt.

As Desiree attempts to work with her brothers to conjure up a long-term solution to Pinewood's financial crisis, she must face her past mistakes head on, including the bad blood with Mitchell. As the Fourth of July approaches, it is up to Desiree and her siblings to put into action a plan that will save Pinewood Hills. In order for The Banners Project to help their beloved hometown recover from hard financial times, they must put their family feud aside and find harmony both on and offstage.
