Soap Alums Star in Hallmark Adaptation of YA Novel You're Bacon Me Crazy!

Publish date:

An adult adaptation of YA novel You're Bacon Me Crazy! is in the works, starring several soap alums, for Hallmark. The original book centers on a teen's romantic adventures while working on her aunt's food truck; the film refocuses the story on the aunt herself, Cleo, and her niece, Tessa. 

Natalie Hall (ex-Colby, All My Children) stars as Cleo, who feels sparks fly when she butts heads with rival chef Gabe (Michael Rady) in a food truck competition. But can the two cooks come to a sweet happily-ever-after? Rady is well-known for guest spots on Jane the Virgin and UnReal, among other shows.

Besides Hall, the best-known daytime graduate is Barbara Tyson, who plays Mary in Bacon. Tyson starred on Another World as Dawn "Ivy" Rollo between 1987 and 1988.
