The Hallmark Channel has cast daytime fan favorites Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan, ALL MY CHILDREN) and Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, GENERAL HOSPITAL; ex-Nick, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) in My Gal Sunday, a two-hour backdoor pilot and potential primetime series. Production begins today in Vancouver on the film, which is based on the book of short stories of the same name by bestseller Mary Higgins Clark.
The show will also feature CLUELESS star Rachel Blanchard as renowned attorney and private investigator Sandra "Sunday" O'Brien-Parker; Mathison plays her new husband and sleuthing partner, retired White House Secretary of State and former California governor Henry Parker. Wagner is Sunday's Secret Service Agent father, Danny, who is kidnapped along with her mother en route to a high-profile event. Believing they are the true targets of the crime, Sunday and Henry team together in their most personal case yet.
My Gal Sunday is scheduled to premiere on The Hallmark Channel next year.
