Ryan Merriman ("Home of the Giants") and Lacey Chabert ("Ghosts of Girlfriends Past") star in "Elevator Girl," an original movie about two strangers whose instant connection when they are stuck in an elevator together sparks an unexpected romance. Despite their seeming differences they fall in love and learn to embrace each other's flaws.
"Elevator Girl" has just completed production and will air on Hallmark Channel in 2010.
Jonathan MacIntyre (Merriman) is a handsome workaholic at a prestigious law firm. When Jonathan is made a partner in his firm, the company throws a congratulatory dinner for him. On his way there he gets stuck in the building's elevator with Libby Taylor (Chabert), a free-spirited, artistic type who is on her way to work as a server at Jonathan's dinner.
The chemistry is immediate between Jonathan and Libby, but the vast differences between their worlds prevent them from pursuing a relationship until Jonathan's secretary, Rosemary (Patty McCormack, "Citizen Jane"), orchestrates a second meeting between them where their connection resurfaces. Jonathan's coworkers look down upon Libby, and Libby's friends are wary of Jonathan's character, but the influences of their peers prove no match to the power of fate that brought them together. Ultimately, their unlikely relationship pushes Jonathan and Libby to confront their own insecurities and figure out what really matters in life.
"Elevator Girl" is being produced by Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer. Lincoln Lageson and Erik Heiberg are the producers. Bradford May directed from a script written by Jennifer Notas.
