A tabloid reporter is one gossip scoop away from a big promotion and finds that the influential political family she's pursing is nothing like what she imagined in "Snow Bride," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere Saturday, November 9 (8pm ET/PT, 7C). Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) Award nominee Patricia Richardson ("Home Improvement," "The West Wing"), Katrina Law ("Spartacus: War of the Damned") and Jordan Belfi ("Surrogates," "Entourage") star along with Susie Abromeit ("As the World Turns," "The Haves and the Haves Nots"), Robert Curtis Brown ("Switched at Birth," "Catch Me If You Can"), Bobby Campo ("Being Human") and Tom Lenk ("Witches of East End," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer") in this unique, holiday romance, part of Hallmark Channel's annual COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS, the #1 most treasured holiday destination by television viewers.
Greta Kaine (Law) is always in search of juicy gossip. As a tabloid reporter at Pulse! Gossip in Los Angeles, it's her job to expose the rich and famous for the entertainment of the magazine's readers. So when word gets out that that one of the late Senator Tannehill's two sons might be proposing marriage at the family's Big Bear compound during Christmas, Greta and her chief rival Wes (Lenk) are challenged by their old-school editor to get the scoop. There's incentive to be the first, too: The editorship of the magazine's new online incarnation.
When Greta's assistant tells her that Wes has a head start to snowy Big Bear, Greta dashes to the mountain resort, without suitable clothing, in search of the Tannenhill estate. Things start to get tricky when she gets lost, backs her car into a tree and has no cell phone service. Freezing, she throws on the only clothing she has in the car: the wedding dress of her friend. After tumbling down a hill in search of help, bad luck turns into extremely good luck when elder son Ben Tannenhill (Belfi) comes to the aid of the "runaway bride." Greta finds herself in the middle of what could be her best story yet when she poses as Ben's girlfriend after his brother Jared (Campo) comes home with his conniving girlfriend Klaire (Abromeit) - Ben's ex. Suddenly as a guest at the Tannehill estate, Greta discovers that the family, including matriarch Maggie Tannenhill (Richardson) and caretaker Peters (Brown), are more down-to-
earth than she ever gave them credit for. As she grows more attracted to Ben, she becomes increasingly guilt-ridden about her game of subterfuge and soon must decide how far will she go for the sake of a story.
"Snow Bride" is produced by Johnson Production Group / Anderson Media Group. Lee Friedlander, Michael Vickerman, Timothy O. Johnson and Scott Anderson serve as executive producers. The film is produced by Jennifer Glynn, written by Tracy Andreen and directed by Bert Kirsh.
