A MODERN TAKE ON 'MY FAIR LADY'

TAYLOR COLE AND STEVE LUND STAR IN 'THE ART OF US,' A NEW, ORIGINAL HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE SATURDAY, MAY 20

Co-Star "Vincent the Dog" Part of Crown Media Family Networks' Global Initiative to End Pet Homelessness

STUDIO CITY, CA - March 29, 2017 - Taylor Cole ("The Originals," "Christmas at Homestead") and Steve Lund ("Schitt's Creek," "Reign") star in Hallmark Channel's "The Art of Us," a new original movie premiering Saturday, May 20 (9 p.m. ET/PT). The film also has a prominent story arc for "Vincent the Dog" and other adorable canines, part of Crown Media Family Networks' (home of Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries) global pet initiative and the company's steadfast commitment to end pet homelessness by using entertainment to show the joys pets bring to our lives every day. Crown Media Family Networks produces pet-centric original movies and specials ("Kitten Bowl," "Meow Madness," "Hero Dog Awards") to create awareness for the beautiful animals at local shelters waiting to find a forever home.

"The Art of Us" is a modern retelling of "My Fair Lady." Dr. Harper Higgins (Cole) is determined to land a tenured position at Boston College, and she is counting on curating a big art gallery at the university to do so. But when Higgins loses her showcase artist and can find no one else, she turns to her recently hired dog walker Tom Stone (Lund) who, unbeknownst to anyone, is a very skilled painter. Transforming Tom into a credible, respected artist is going to take work, but Dr. Higgins feels up to the challenge. The only complication comes when professor and artist fall for each other during the charade and risk being outed by a competing professor.

"We are fortunate to continue developing innovative content while simultaneously partnering with tremendously talented actors such as Taylor Cole and Steve Lund," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Publicity.

"Taylor Cole and Steve Lund radiate the screen and we have no doubt they will create a masterpiece together with 'The Art of Us,'" Vicary concluded.

"The Art of Us" is an Art of Us Films Inc production. Howard Braunstein and Sydell Albert are executive producers. Christian Bruyere is producer. Kristoffer Tabori directs from the teleplay by Karen Berger, based on the book by Teri Wilson.
