RACHEL BLANCHARD STARS WITH EMMY(R) NOMINEES JACK WAGNER AND CAMERON MATHISON IN "MY GAL SUNDAY," A HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL ORIGINAL WORLD PREMIERE, JANUARY 18
Based on the book of short stories My Gal Sunday,
by New York Times Bestselling Author Mary Higgins Clark
Romance and crime-solving combine when Rachel Blanchard ("Clueless") and Emmy(R) nominee Cameron Mathison ("All My Children") star as an unstoppable husband-and-wife private eye team alongside Emmy(R) nominee Jack Wagner ("The Bold and the Beautiful") in "My Gal Sunday," a Hallmark Movie Channel Original World Premiere Saturday, January 18 (9pm ET/PT, 8C). Based on the book of short stories My Gal Sunday by New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark, the film centers around Sandra "Sunday" O'Brien-Parker (Blanchard), renowned attorney and private investigator and her newlywed husband and sleuthing partner, Henry Parker (Mathison), whose deep political ties and endearing love story put them at the center of intrigue and scandal. "My Gal Sunday," is also a family affair for the "Queen of Suspense" Mary Higgins Clark as her daughter Carol and granddaughter Elizabeth co-star in the film.
It was love at first sight for beautiful young lawyer Sandra "Sunday" O'Brien-Parker (Blanchard) and Henry Parker (Mathison), retiring White House Secretary of State, when Sunday's dad Danny (Wagner), Henry's colleague and Secret Service Agent, introduced them at the picturesque Why Worry Ranch in California. Now, a year after their wedding, Sunday and Parker - living on the ranch near Lake Tahoe after Parker's recent term as beloved state governor - are an irresistible sleuthing team who enjoy the political spotlight while taking pleasure busting the bad guys. But when Parker's mom Miriam (Janet-Laine Green, "She's the Mayor") and Danny are suddenly kidnapped on their way to a high-profile family event, Parker and Sunday are immediately on the case - and this time its personal.
Believing they were the true targets of the crime, the daring duo work together to uncover clues and find out why the kidnapper is demanding the release of a notorious hit-man from federal prison as a ransom. Racing against the clock to rescue their parents, Parker and Sunday dig deep into their past to find out their connection to the criminal and as they uncover his identity, they put their lives at stake in a suspenseful final showdown.
