A STAY-AT-HOME MOM FOLLOWS HER DREAMS, ONLY TO LEARN THAT HER GLAMOROUS CAREER AMBITIONS MEAN NOTHING WITHOUT HER FAMILY BY HER SIDE BONNIE SOMERVILLE AND JAMES TUPPER STAR WITH ONA GRAUER IN 'MOM'S DAY AWAY' A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE MAY 10

Kevin McNulty, Toby Levins, Iain Belcher and Kaitlyn Bernard Co-Star

A stay-at-home mom spends Mother's Day weekend away from home only to find the exciting career life she's longed for is no substitute for her loving family in "Mom's Day Away," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere Saturday, May 10 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). Bonnie Somerville ("Golden Boy") and James Tupper ("Revenge") star in this heartwarming romantic comedy along with Ona Grauer ("Elysium"), Kevin McNulty ("Arctic Air"), Toby Levins ("Rogue"), Iain Belcher ("Scarecrow") and Kaitlyn Bernard ("June in January").

Stay-at-home mom Laura Miller (Somerville) chose family life over a glamorous career. Her husband Michael (Tupper), a workaholic realtor, eternally conducts business on his cell phone while her 17-year-old son (Belcher) and 12-year old daughter (Bernard) are absorbed in their young life dramas. It's Mother's Day weekend and still nobody is paying attention to Laura's needs. Excitement is injected into Laura's life when her dazzling and affluent BFF Trish (Grauer) shows up and whisks her off on an adventure-filled trip to a lavish resort.

Over this Mother's Day weekend, Laura has an awakening, making up for lost time by overindulging in the resort's luxurious offerings and rekindling her career aspirations when Trish's wealthy client (McNulty) encourages her to follow her dreams. As Trish begins to realize her jet-setting lifestyle may not be as fulfilling as settling down with the love of her life (Levins), Laura learns that living her dreams won't bring true happiness unless her family is along for the adventure.

"Mom's Day Away" is a Queen Bee Productions Inc. Ira S. Pincus is the executive producer. Robert Lee is the producer. Mark Jean directed from a script by Neal and Tippi Dobrofsky based on a story by Mick Spyder Dobrofsky.
