General Hospital fan favorite Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda) is teaming up with The Hallmark Channel once again. Marcil will star in Stranded in Paradise, alongside Desperate Housewives' James Denton. Marcil plays Tess Nelson, a self-assured HR exec who is eyeing a promotion but gets laid off instead. Tess heads to an human resources convention in Puerto Rico to snag a new job and not to let her overbearing mother (Cindy Pickett) down. The trip to the beautiful island starts out disastrous for Tess, who starts to rethink her strategy. Things change for the better when Tess encounters Carter (Denton) and gets a bit closer to him when a hurricane arrives.
Stranded In Paradise debuts Aug. 9 at 9 PM EST on The Hallmark Channel
