MARY-LOUISE PARKER, TIM GUINEE, TOM SKERRITT AND BETTY BUCKLEY STAR IN "VINEGAR HILL," A NEW TELEVISION MOVIE TO BE BROADCAST SATURDAY, MAY 24 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

Based On An Oprah Book Club Selection By A. Manette Ansay

VINEGAR HILL, a new television movie starring Mary-Louise Parker ("Weeds"), Tim Guinee ("Ladder 49"), Tom Skerritt ("Brothers & Sisters") and Betty Buckley ("Oz"), will be broadcast Saturday, May 24 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The drama, based on an Oprah book club selection by A. Manette Ansay, is a drama about a schoolteacher and her husband, Ellen and James Grier (Parker, Guinee), who are down on their luck and, with their two children, are temporarily forced to move into her husband's parents' home.

Once there, they discover that James' parents have a loveless, bitter relationship that thrives on making each other miserable. Ellen realizes that there are dark and terrifying secrets being kept inside and watches helplessly as her husband, torn between his father and herself, begins to change into a person with whom she doesn't want to live. In order for her family to survive, Ellen must discover the mysteries that are tearing everyone apart.

Tom Skerritt and Betty Buckley play James' parents, Fritz and Mary Margaret.
