EMMY(R) NOMINATED ACTORS JACK WAGNER AND CAMERON MATHISON ALONG WITH RACHEL BLANCHARD START PRODUCTION ON "MY GAL SUNDAY," A HALLMARK CHANNEL BACKDOOR PILOT AND POTENTIAL PRIMETIME SERIES

Based on the book of short stories My Gal Sunday by New York Times Bestselling Author Mary Higgins Clark

Hallmark Channel announces Rachel Blanchard ("Clueless") and Emmy(R) nominees Jack Wagner ("The Bold and the Beautiful") and Cameron Mathison ("All My Children") will star in "My Gal Sunday." The new two-hour backdoor pilot and potential primetime series in development for Hallmark Channel, begins production tomorrow, Wednesday, July 24 in Vancouver. Based on the book of short stories My Gal Sunday by New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark, the backdoor pilot centers around an irresistible sleuthing duo, Sandra "Sunday" O'Brien-Parker (Blanchard), renowned attorney and private investigator and her newlywed husband and sleuthing partner, Henry Parker (Mathison), whose deep political ties and endearing romance put them at the center of intrigue and scandal. "My Gal Sunday," is also a family affair for the "Queen of Suspense" Mary Higgins Clark as her daughter Carol and granddaughter Elizabeth co-star in the two-hour backdoor pilot and potential primetime series scheduled to premiere on Hallmark Channel in 2014.

"My Gal Sunday," is an Entertainment One Television production. Emmy(R) Award nominees Howard Burkons ("The Ron Clark Story") and Brenda Friend ("The Ron Clark Story," "Joan of Arc") and Entertainment One's Ira Pincus ("Goodnight for Justice") and John Morayniss ("Hell on Wheels," "Klondike") are executive producers. Randy Cheveldave is producer and Jonathan Schwartz is supervising producer. K.T. Donaldson ("Tom Dick & Harriett") directs from a script by Burkons. Entertainment One is also the international distributor.

It was love at first sight for Sandra "Sunday" O'Brien-Parker (Blanchard), the beautiful young lawyer and daughter of a Secret Service Agent and Henry Parker (Mathison), retiring White House Secretary of State, when Sunday's dad Danny (Wagner) introduces them in Washington, D.C. A year after their wedding, Sunday and Parker - now living near Lake Tahoe, California where Parker was once a beloved state governor - are an unstoppable sleuthing team who enjoy the political spotlight while taking pleasure busting the bad guys. But when Parker's mom Miriam (Janet-Laine Green, "She's the Mayor") and Danny are suddenly kidnapped on their way to a high-profile family event, Parker and Sunday are immediately on the case - and this time its personal. Believing they were the true targets of the crime, the daring duo works together to uncover clues and find out why the kidnapper is demanding the release of a notorious hit-man from federal prison as a ransom. Racing against the clock to rescue their parents, Parker and Sunday dig deep into their past to find out their connection to the criminal and as they uncover his identity, they put their lives at stake in a suspenseful final showdown.
