DAVID JAMES ELLIOTT ("JAG") STARS IN "MAN OF THE
HOUSE," A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WHICH HAS BEGUN PRODUCTION
FOR PREMIERE IN 2010
David James Elliott ("JAG") stars in "Man of the
House," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie about a workaholic ad
agency executive who has lost his wife and is then fired from his job. He
soon becomes a full-time Mr. Mom and begins to realize what he has been
missing by not balancing his career and family life.
"Man of the House" has begun production and will premiere on
Hallmark Channel in 2010.
Ben Landis (Elliott) is shocked when his boss gives him the news that
his job as an advertising executive is over because he makes too much
money and can be easily replaced by three younger guys for the same
amount. He shares the news with his two children, Lindsay (Madison
Davenport), age 12, and Dylan (Will Shadley), age 8, who have many
questions. Then he fires his live-in housekeeper who he can no longer
afford to keep. Now in the role of Mr. Mom, he immediately begins making a
mess of everything the kitchen, dropping the kids off at school, managing
Dylan's asthma attack and making cupcakes for the school bake sale.
But Ben keeps at it and soon gets the hang of things and even finds a
supporter in Miss Jensen (Sharon Case, "The Young and the
Restless"), Dylan's teacher, with whom there's an instant attraction.
However, when he's offered a wonderful job at an ad agency in another
city, Ben must decide what matters most in life, and what will be the best
thing for him and his family.
"Man of the House" is being produced by Larry Levinson
Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer. Brian Gordon and
Jim Wilberger and Lincoln are the producers. Bradford May is directing
from a script written by Adam Rockoff.
