Former soap stars
are gearing up to star in a two-hour backdoor pilot for the Hallmark Channel. If the pilot performs well, it has the potential to be made into a primetime series. Wagner and Mathison will star in
My Gal Sunday
, based on the book of short stories of the same name by
New York Times
best selling author
Mary Higgins Clark
The drama revolves around Sandra “Sunday” O’Brien-Parker (
), a well-known attorney and private investigator and her new husband and partner Henry (Mathison), who also happens to be the outgoing White House Secretary of State.
After a year of wedded bliss and Henry’s leadership as Governor of California, the couple must race to save Sunday’s father, Danny (Wagner) and mother Miriam (Janet-Laine Green) after they are kidnapped.
My Gal Sunday, which began filming July 24, is slated to air next year on the Hallmark Channel.
