Actress Rachel Blanchard (TV’s ‘Clueless’) and soap opera actors Jack Wagner (‘The Bold and the Beautiful’) and Cameron Mathison (‘All My Children’) are set to star in the new two-hour backdoor pilot and potential new primetime series on the Hallmark Channel called My Gal Sunday, which is based on the short stories by New York Times best-selling author Mary Higgins Clark.

It was love at first sight for Sandra “Sunday” O’Brien-Parker (Blanchard), the beautiful young lawyer and daughter of a Secret Service Agent and Henry Parker (Mathison), retiring White House Secretary of State, when Sunday’s dad Danny (Wagner) introduces them in Washington, D.C. A year after their wedding, Sunday and Parker — now living near Lake Tahoe, California where Parker was once a beloved state governor — are an unstoppable sleuthing team who enjoy the political spotlight
while taking pleasure busting the bad guys. But when Parker’s mom Miriam 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 it’s personal. Believing they were the true targets of the crime, the daring duo works 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.

‘My Gal Sunday’ is an Entertainment One Television production with Howard Burkons and Brenda Friend (both from ‘The Ron Clark Story’) and Ira Pincus (‘Goodnight for Justice”) and John Morayniss (‘Hell on Wheels’) serving as executive producers.

This backdoor pilot and potential series of ‘My Gal Sunday’ are scheduled to premiere on the Hallmark Channel in 2014.
