DESCRIPTION: (from Hallmark's press release) Hallmark Channel has just wrapped production on "The View From Here," an original movie set to air in late 2009 starring Angie Dickinson ("Ocean's Eleven") and Laura Leighton ("Melrose Place"). Laura Leighton stars as Kelly Grant, a hard-nosed television journalist who is turned down for a big promotion at work. Angie Dickinson stars as Ruth Hanson, Kelly's estranged mother, who lives and works on the family's farm in the small town of Santa Ynez. One day, Kelly is visited by an old friend who tells her of Ruth's failing health and urges her to visit. When she arrives on the farm she finds out that the town is suffering from a severe water drought and that an out-of-state company is buying up neighboring farms to build a casino. Kelly uses her investigative skills to uncover a plot against the town and its residents. She also does some much-needed soul searching and comes face-to-face with the reasons she left home years ago and why her relationship with Ruth has since been strained. With the help of her feisty young daughter, Kamilla (Shanley Caswell, "Zoey 101"), Kelly charts a path to help the town, her mother and ultimately, herself.
