UNDERCOVER BRIDESMAID
Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere

Starring: Brooke Burns, Gregory Harrison, Nicole Paggi, Justin Baldoni and Jay Kenneth Johnson

Tanya (Brooke Burns), a highly-trained bodyguard who was once jilted at the altar, is hired by a Texas mogul (Gregory Harrison) to act as a bodyguard for his daughter. The assignment is to serve and protect the bride as a bridesmaid for Daisy (Nicole Paggi), a woman who has been receiving death threats leading up to her big day. But the agent soon finds herself embroiled with the groom’s questionable, yet charming best friend (Justin Baldoni) and is struggling to separate her bitter feelings from her past to survive this assignment. Between the aunt who is depleting the family scholarship fund, the playboy cousin with an inheritance at stake, a very angry business partner, and the groom (Jay Kenneth Johnson) with a wandering eye – almost every wedding attendee is a legitimate suspect.

Mary Tyler Moore and Valerie Harper, two of television’s most beloved stars, reunite as their popular alter egos, Mary Richards and Rhoda Morgenstern.

Now both single with college-age daughters, they’re taking on New York City and the daunting challenges of motherhood and finding new careers at a difficult time to be on their own. However, they are still our favorite “Mare” and Rhoda, learning to trust their instincts about life and each other – once again – with that distinctive sense of class and humor.
