EMMY(R) AND TWO-TIME GOLDEN GLOBE(R) WINNER SHELLEY LONG AND GOLDEN GLOBE(R) NOMINEE CINDY WILLIAMS JOIN JULIE MOND AND TREVOR DONOVAN IN "STRAWBERRY SUMMER," A HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL ORIGINAL WORLD PREMIERE AUGUST 25

Featuring An Original Song Composed By Nathan Furst And Trevor Donovan With Lyrics By Gary Goldstein

When a small-town music teacher hires a handsome southern singing sensation to perform at their annual Strawberry Festival, she finds herself falling for the crooner despite his bad boy reputation. The World Premiere of "Strawberry Summer," a Hallmark Movie Channel Original is Saturday, August 25 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). "Strawberry Summer" features an original song composed by Nathan Furst and Trevor Donovan with lyrics by Gary Goldstein. Veteran funny ladies, Emmy(R) and two-time Golden Globe(R) winning actress Shelley Long ("Cheers") and Golden Globe(R) nominated actress Cindy Williams ("Laverne & Shirley") star alongside Julie Mond ("Love Begins," "Love's Everlasting Courage") and Trevor Donovan ("90210") in a romantic summer story.

High school music teacher Beth Landon (Mond) puts herself on the line when she invites world-famous country singer Jason Keith (Donovan) to perform at her rural town's Strawberry Festival. A one-hit wonder with a horrible rep for cancelling shows and copping an attitude, Jason isn't what Beth's mother, Eileen (Long), considers a reliable musical act for the beloved festival, which she is proudly hosting with her good friend Ruth (Williams). Beth, reigning as Strawberry Queen, attempts to stick up for her favorite singer, until she finally meets Jason face-to-face and it's obvious it won't be easy. But behind Jason's rock star image, he's hiding a secret about his past that could turn around his tanking career. Along with his manager Ray (Jilon VanOver, "Hatfields & McCoys"), Beth convinces Jason that the festival gig is a great way to revitalize his career and win back his audience appeal. As Jason spends more time with Beth, his attitude starts to fade as they each encourage the other to realize their deepest dreams as talented musicians.

Randy Pope and Amanda Phillips Atkins are co-executive producers. James Wilberger is the producer. Kevin Connor directed from a script by Gary Goldstein and Jim Head. Story by Jim Head.
