The Nanny Express premieres on the Hallmark Channel

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: January 3, 2009 | Categories: Entertainment, Fun, TV

Vanessa Marcil in Hallmark Channel Original Movie 'The Nanny Express' The Nanny Express is Hallmark Channel’s newest original movie.  Yet again, another great family movie to watch on a Saturday night.  I’m looking forward to this one because I love Vanessa Marcil.  I miss her as Brenda on General Hospital.  However, many of you may know her better from Las Vegas; whatever the case she is an actress I enjoy watching.

The hallmarkchannel.com site says this about The Nanny Express,

By the time Kate Hewitt (Vanessa Marcil) walks through the front door of widower David Chandler (Brennan Elliott), he is a desperate man.  His two children, nine-year-old Ben (Uriah Shelton) and teenager Emily (Natalie Dreyfuss), have already succeeded in chasing a string of six terrorized nannies out of the very same entryway.  But Kate, who is caring for an ailing father (Dean Stockwell) and finishing up a teaching degree, needs this job and she resolves to stand up to whatever tricks and pranks the Chandler kids can dish out—and to help them cope with the death of their mother.

 
As Kate slowly wins over young Ben, dad David finds himself falling for the spunky nanny as well.  The feeling is mutual, but a bitter Emily is determined not to let Kate into her life—or her father’s.  Emily doesn’t realize that Kate understands exactly what she’s going through because Kate lost her own mother as a teenager.  Somehow, Kate must find a way to reach the angry and isolated teen since Emily’s happiness—and Kate’s as well—depends on it.

The Nanny Express also stars Stacy Keach, most recently appearing as warden Henry Pope on Prison Break, Dean Stockwell, who most recently appeared as Brother Cavil in numerous episodes of Battlestar Galactica, and Brennan Elliott, most recently starring as Ben Saunders in the sci-fi series The 4400.

You can check out Marcil’s interview with SoapOperaNetwork.com on her role in The Nanny Express.

If you’re looking for a good movie that the whole family can watch tune in January 3, 2009 at 9:00 pm EST. to the Hallmark Channel and watch The Nanny Express.  Go to hallmark.com for more information and additional show times.

    I watched Nanny Express.
    My comment is:
    Why do you ruin a perfectly good movie with background music that drowns out the dialogue?
    This is happening not just with the Hallmark but most of other TV channels
    If its not music it is canned laughter.

    Lifetime has someone banging away on a piano throughout their programs.
    Viewers want to be able to hear the actors. Keep the music for the non dialogue scenes only.
    Why the entertainment world, stores, supermarkets, airports etc.etc think we need that background noise continously amazes me.
    I also use the word music in a broad sense because most of it is really just noise.

    hank you for allowing me to blow off steam.

  16. Joyce says:

    I’ve read the description of the movie and the names of the actor/actress, but I’m trying to find out the girlfried of Kate that ride the bus with her and I think her name is Lisa? I can’t read the credits at the end of the show because it moves too fast and it’s too small to read. Is the actress who plays "Lisa" is that Cassidy/Chassidy Rae? I’m going bananas in trying to tell myself it is, but I don’t know for sure. Please help? Thank you so much!

  18. Susan says:

    I loved that movie. I taped it and would buy the dvd. I love hallmark channel. As a romance book reader those happy ending stories are what I love. I love Vanessa Marcil. I consider her one the most beautiful women. AND the guy, Brennan Elliott…. he was so handsome I sat and watched the movie twice last night. I hope Hallmark will use him again.

  19. scott says:

    Liked it also , but thought she looked a little young for the dad, I mean she couldn’t have been more than about three years older than his daughter.
