FOUR-TIME EMMY(R) NOMINEE DANNY GLOVER STARS WITH AUSTIN STOWELL AND KAYLA EWELL IN "NORMAN ROCKWELL'S SHUFFLETON'S BARBERSHOP," A HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL ORIGINAL WORLD PREMIERE ON JUNE 1

Based on Acclaimed Artist Norman Rockwell's Iconic Portrayal of the Spirit of America During the 1950's

Acclaimed artist Norman Rockwell's iconic portrayal of the American spirit comes to life in "Norman Rockwell's Shuffleton's Barbershop," a Hallmark Movie Channel Original World Premiere on Saturday, June 1 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C). Rockwell is a celebrated 20th century artist who is renowned for his idyllic small-town American scenes that were featured on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post, including his 1950's painting, Shuffleton's Barbershop. Starring four-time Emmy(R) nominee Danny Glover ("The Color Purple," "Lethal Weapon"), Austin Stowell ("The Secret Life of the American Teenager") and Kayla Ewell ("The Vampire Diaries," "Keeping Up With The Randalls"), the story focuses on a big celebrity who revisits his small hometown to reconcile his past with his present and rediscover the lasting value of family, friends and fatherhood.

When Rockwell's painting fades into the world of Charlie Shuffleton's (Glover) barbershop, this classic piece of Americana becomes the center of a small town where friends gather, gossip flows and age-old memories are kept. Peering in the window, famous country singer Trey Cole (Stowell) is finally returning home after abandoning the town many years ago and never looking back, even when his brother died serving in the military, leaving sister-in-law, Norma, (Ewell) to care for her son by herself. Now, realizing he's lost himself along the way, Trey remembers his first haircut in the brown leather chair as a young boy at age ten (Dash Pledger-Levine) in Charlie's shop and hopes to find guidance from the man who was a father to him when his own dad, General Wes Cameron (Brett Rice, "Magic City"), was coldly absent during his childhood.

However, as Trey enters the shop and sees Charlie's old friends playing a trio of instruments in the back room, as in Rockwell's famous painting, he is surprised when Charlie isn't there and saddened to hear of his death just a few months prior. With childhood memories flooding his mind about Charlie's constant and loving influence on him as a young boy, Trey knows he must face his own father and the family he hardly knows to honor Charlie's memory and make things right.

Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) was a prolific painter and illustrator in the 20th century, frequently depicting enduring American images with exceptional detail. Born in New York City, he eventually resided in both Vermont and Massachusetts and became nationally renowned for his paintings of nostalgic American life, which frequently appeared on the covers of The Saturday Evening Post for several decades and featured Rockwell's take on the American ideals of kindness, tolerance, democracy and freedom. Shuffleton's Barbershop is an oil on canvas piece based on a photograph of a barbershop in East Arlington, Vermont. It was reproduced as the cover illustration of The Saturday Evening Post on April 29, 1950. The original painting is part of the collection in the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, a gift to the museum from Rockwell himself, and has also been a favorite addition to Stockbridge, Massachusetts' Norman Rockwell Museum's traveling exhibition.

"Norman Rockwell's Shuffleton's Barbershop" is a production of Foxfield Entertainment, Nightwatch Productions and Jessamine Productions, plc. Bruce Johnson, John Wilder and Fernando Szew are executive producers and Mitchell Galin is producer. Mark Jean directs from a script by John Wilder.
