Premiering Saturday night, November 8, 2008 at 9:00 pm EST is the Hallmark channel’s original movie Mail Order Bride. I love the Hallmark channel! They show original and wholesome movies, the whole family can watch. Here is the Hallmark channel’s press release of Mail Order Bride,
Diana McQueen, a con woman fleeing from her handler, ends up posing as her recently-deceased friend, Jen, in order to move out West to marry a man neither woman has ever met. But Diana’s lies begin to crumble when her new “fiancé” becomes suspicious and her violent past suddenly shows up on her doorstep in “Mail Order Bride,” a Hallmark Channel Original Movie premiering Saturday, November 8 (9/8c). Daphne Zuniga (“Melrose Place”) and Greg Evigan (“My Two Dads”) star in the story of the divisiveness of deceit and the liberating power of truth.
Diana McQueen (Zuniga) has been working, against her will, for Boston [sic] conman Tom Rourke (Evigan) since she was 12, running scams, stealing and lying. Now, she’s had enough, and one good haul is all she needs to get out of this life.
Diana’s friend Jen, ill with tuberculosis, has been corresponding with Beau (Cameron Bancroft, “Beautiful People”) a Wyoming rancher she’s never met, but plans to marry. When Jen dies, Diana seizes the opportunity to start her life over by stealing Rourke’s money. Pretending to be Jen, she moves out West to marry Beau. As Beau battles against the local Cattleman’s Association, Diana falls back on her old ways, and jumps at the chance to get enough cash to run away again. Just when Beau figures out who Diana really is, Rourke discovers where she’s hiding, and the ensuing showdown turns the town upside-down, changing the future for all of them.
If you remember Greg Evigan from BJ and the Bear and My Two Dads, you’ll remember that he played loveable, "good" guy characters. So I’m interested in seeing him play a "bad" guy. Another plus is Cameron Bancroft. From the video preview he is more than just a little pleasing on the eyes.
So this Saturday night, pop some popcorn and cozy up on your comfortable couch/chair and watch Mail Order Bride. You can also go to the hallmarkchannel.com to see video, pictures and more. If you watch it let us know what you think of it.
