life in the city: thousands of dollars

appeasing a child: pocket change

the life she'd only dreamt of: priceless

JORDAN LADD AND JASON LONDON STAR ALONGSIDE ACADEMY AWARD� WINNER ERNEST BORGNINE AND ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE SALLY KELLERMAN IN 'THE WISHING WELL,' A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE PREMIERING JANUARY 9

Tempestt Bledsoe, Yeardley Smith, Charles Shaughnessy And Jadin Gould Costar

When a city-bred journalist heads to small-town Illinois for a story, her one-day visit turns into a much longer stay with the toss of a coin when Academy Award� and Golden Globe winner Ernest Borgnine, Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Sally Kellerman and Jordan Ladd ("Death Proof") star in "The Wishing Well," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie premiering Saturday, January 9 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C). Jason London ("All Roads Lead Home"), Jadin Gould ("United States of Tara"), Tempestt Bledsoe ("The Cosby Show"), Yeardley Smith ("The Simpsons") and Charles Shaughnessy ("The Nanny") costar in the time-twisting story about finding answers in the most unexpected of places. The film encores on Saturday, January 9 (11p.m. ET/PT, 10C), Sunday, January 10 (1a.m. ET/PT 12C) and (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C), Friday, January 15 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C) and Saturday, January 16 (3p.m. ET/PT, 2C).

Celeb magazine writer Cynthia Tamerline (Ladd), who is happy to have never left New York City, is less than thrilled when her boss sends her to Slow Creek, Illinois to write about the town's wishing well. Out of place and uncomfortable from the moment she arrives, Cynthia plans to write her story and return to the city in record time. From eccentric hotel owner Big Jim (Borgnine) to Donette (Kellerman), his ex-wife and the town's resident waitress/unofficial psychiatrist, everyone's got an opinion on the well's supposed powers.

While taking a look at the well for herself, Cynthia meets 10-year-old Abby Jansen (Gould), a loyal believer in the well's wish-granting powers. On the other hand, Abby's father, Mark (London), who owns the town's local newspaper, stopped believing in miracles after his wife's death a few years before. But things begin to change after Abby and Cynthia wish for the same thing simultaneously: To simply be happy.

On the flight home, Cynthia dozes off on the plane, and the next thing she knows, she wakes up back in her hotel room in Slow Creek. She only gets more confused when the people who should know her don't, those who do recognize her claim to have had interactions with her that she doesn't remember at all, and all of her expensive clothes and gadgets have been replaced with average ones. At first, Cynthia is convinced she's the butt of a very thorough practical joke, but in just the few days she spends there, she'll see the life she could be living and will have to decide where she belongs.

"The Wishing Well" is an LG Films Production, in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer, Randy Pope and Michael Moran are the co-executive producers, and Brian J. Gordon is the producer. David Jackson directed from a script by Steven H. Berman.
