LEA THOMPSON IS ABOUT TO FIND OUT if THERE IS A FUTURE
BEYOND THE FINISH LINE IN
A HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL ORIGINAL WORLD PREMIERE JULY 30
Steven Brand Co-stars
Lea Thompson ("Jane Doe," "Back to the Future") stars with Steven Brand ("Covert Affairs") in the World Premiere of "The Cabin," a Hallmark Movie Channel Original Premiere, Saturday, July 30 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). What was supposed to be a vacation of culture, adventure and ancestral bonding, becomes the Clash of the Macs, when two divorced strangers with nothing in common but their last name, battle as they are forced to share the same cabin with their kids in Scotland.
Lily MacDougal (Thompson) and Conor MacDougal (Brand) are single parents who share the same surname, but have little else in common. Lily and Conor have each brought their children to Scotland to enter a national Clan Mac-type affair called the "Meeting of the Macs." But when a careless booking agent accidentally assigns Lily's family and Conor's to the same cabin, a civil war ensues reminiscent of the War of Scottish Independence. Through a series of mishaps, Lily and Conor struggle to get along as their families are now entered into the competition as a single team, which further means they will need to get along in order to get ahead and win. Will the warring "Macs" set aside personal differences for the greater good, or will it take another Treaty of Edinburgh to bring peace back to the tiny Scottish hamlet?
"The Cabin" is a Parallel Films Production for MNG Films in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson, Mary Callery and Alan Moloney are the executive producers. Randy Pope is the co-executive producer and Peter Norris is the producer. Brian Trenchard-Smith directed from a teleplay written by Gary Goldstein. Story by Dennis A. Pratt and Gary Goldstein.
