Take a first look at Brian Austin Green in Hallmark’s new original movie, THE WILD GIRL, which premieres on April 24 (9 p.m. ET/PT, 8 p.m. CT). The movie also stars Graham Greene, Kathleen Munroe, Matthew Edison, and Andrew Gillies. It is based on the Novel by Jim Fergus.

The Wild Girl Synopsis: In Chicago in 1932, young photographer Ned Giles is struggling to get published in the Chicago Tribune. One day, Ned sees a flyer advertising the “Great Apache Expedition,” a mission that will combine the wealthy men of America with a Mexican army to rescue Gerald Huerta, the kidnapped son of a rich Mexican landowner and return him to his father. Partnering with affected prep Tolley Phillips (Matthew Edison, “Murder on Her Mind”), who wants to prove to his father he is more than just a spoiled rich boy, Ned travels to Mexico, camera in hand. Joining them are Margaret Hawkins (Kathleen Munroe, “Accidental Friendship”), a beautiful anthropology student with a big heart, and Mr. Browning (Andrew Gillies, “Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy”), a refined English gentleman who serves as Tolley’s valet.
The team enlists native Apache scouts Joseph (Greene) and his grandson Albert (Gregory Odjig, “Elijah”), to guide them to the kidnapped boy, but when Albert makes it clear he has a deep resentment against white people, it seems impossible the group will ever be able to work together.
They run into more trouble when Ned encounters a wild Apache girl, Chideh (Lola Tash), who belongs to the same dangerous tribe of Indians that kidnapped the boy they are searching for. They decide to take Chideh with them on the expedition and use her as a bargaining chip to get the boy back, but aren’t prepared for the risks that lay ahead. When the Apache tribe ambushes the group and takes them hostage, the troop must work together to escape, or face the terrifying price of being would-be heroes.
