Will Premiere on Hallmark Channel in 2010
Jodi Lynn O'Keefe ("Prison Break"), Justin Bruening
("Knight Rider," "General Hospital"), Constance Marie
("George Lopez") and Eric Roberts ("Heroes") have been
cast to star in "Class," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie which
has begun production for presentation on Hallmark Channel in 2010. It's
the story of a well-to-do law student who is given the assignment to help
a young, working class woman facing a tough life situation, and how the
experience ultimately brings profound lessons and other surprises to both
Whitt Sheffield (Bruening) is close to graduating from The Sheffield
Law School with his law degree and then moving into his father's company
as a corporate lawyer. He is given an assignment in his Public Interest
Law class to help a disadvantaged, single mother, Kylie Burch (O'Keefe),
find a job with benefits but he doesn't at first understand why he needs
to even bother with this assignment since he's going into corporate law.
His teacher, Professor Victoria Corrales (Marie), quickly makes it clear
to him that it's a requirement for him to graduate. Kylie Burch is an
attractive young woman who can't hold a job, primarily because her son is
ill which forces her to leave work often to get him medical attention.
Whitt gets started on his assignment but is immediately challenged in his
efforts to establish a connection with Kylie who doesn't want to be
thought of as a charity case.
But soon a series of incidents and unexpected events lead each one to
realize that they're more alike than they had at first realized, and that
they both have a lot to learn from and appreciate about one another. Eric
Roberts plays Whitt's demanding father, Benjamin Sheffield.
"Class" is being produced by Larry Levinson Productions.
Larry Levinson is the executive producer. Erik Heiberg and Lincoln Lageson
are the producers. Dave Cass is directing from a script written by Pam
