[10/08/13 - 05:12 PM] ABC to Air Hallmark Hall of Fame Milestone "Christmas in Conway" on Sunday, December 1 By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)
LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Hallmark Hall of Fame will reach its landmark 250th presentation when ABC premieres "Christmas in Conway" on Sunday, December 1 at 9:00/8:00c.
Andy Garcia, Mandy Moore and Mary-Louise Parker star in the project, which the company detailed back in July as follows:
"Andy Garcia plays Duncan Mayor, who decides the perfect Christmas present for his beloved wife, Suzy (played by Parker), is a ride on a real-deal Ferris wheel, set up in their own back yard. Why? Because it was while riding one years earlier that Duncan asked Suzy to marry him.
Mandy Moore is Suzy's nurse, Natalie. Natalie and Suzy develop a deep bond almost immediately. Not so for Natalie and Duncan, he's a bit of a curmudgeon and at least initially resents the time and attention his wife pays to her soul-mate nurse.
But love is in the air, and not just between Suzy and Duncan. Natalie and a young landscape designer who's helping Duncan assemble the giant Ferris wheel also fall under the intoxicating spell of romance.
Christmas in Conway is directed by John Kent Harrison (The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler, When Love Is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story). The script is by Stephen P. Lindsey (Hachi: A Dog's Tale) and Luis Ugaz. Brent Shields (Remember Sunday, The Makeover) and Howard Koch Jr. (Source Code, Gorky Park) are the executive producers."
