Ryan Merriman ("Home of the Giants") and Lacey Chabert
("Ghosts of Girlfriends Past") star in "Elevator
Girl," an original movie about two strangers whose instant connection
when they are stuck in an elevator together sparks an unexpected romance.
Despite their seeming differences they fall in love and learn to embrace
each other's flaws.
"Elevator Girl" has just completed production and will air on
Hallmark Channel in 2010.
Jonathan MacIntyre (Merriman) is a handsome workaholic at a prestigious
law firm. When Jonathan is made a partner in his firm, the company throws
a congratulatory dinner for him. On his way there he gets stuck in the
building's elevator with Libby Taylor (Chabert), a free-spirited, artistic
type who is on her way to work as a server at Jonathan's dinner.
The chemistry is immediate between Jonathan and Libby, but the vast
differences between their worlds prevent them from pursuing a relationship
until Jonathan's secretary, Rosemary (Patty McCormack, "Citizen
Jane"), orchestrates a second meeting between them where their
connection resurfaces. Jonathan's coworkers look down upon Libby, and
Libby's friends are wary of Jonathan's character, but the influences of
their peers prove no match to the power of fate that brought them
together. Ultimately, their unlikely relationship pushes Jonathan and
Libby to confront their own insecurities and figure out what really
matters in life.
"Elevator Girl" is being produced by Larry Levinson
Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer. Lincoln Lageson and
Erik Heiberg are the producers. Bradford May directed from a script
