DESCRIPTION:
(from Hallmark's press release, March 2016) Emmy(R) Award winner John Tinker, co-creator of the drama "Judging Amy" and executive producer and writer on such shows as "Chicago Hope," "The Practice" and "The Book of Daniel," will executive produce and serve as showrunner for Hallmark Channel's anticipated upcoming series "Chesapeake Shores." As previously announced, the series is slated for a Summer 2016 premiere and stars Jesse Metcalfe ("Desperate Housewives"), Meghan Ory ("Once Upon A Time"), Golden Globe(R) nominee Treat Williams ("Everwood," "Hair") and Academy Award(R) nominee Diane Ladd ("Wild At Heart"). Based on the novels of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods, the series will launch with a two-hour movie, followed by eight one-hour episodes. The multi-generational family drama of "Chesapeake Shores" follows Abby O'Brien (Ory), a high-powered career woman, divorcee and mother to twin daughters, who makes a trip from New York City to her hometown of Chesapeake Shores. Her visit home brings Abby face to face with her past, including her high school sweetheart Trace (Metcalfe), her uncompromising father Mick (Williams) and her esteemed grandmother Nell (Ladd). Abby realizes the toll her career has taken on her ability to be a hands-on mother to her daughters, and considers a permanent move to Chesapeake Shores.
