A HEROIC DOG'S POTENTIAL IS DEFINED BY BOUNDLESS GRACE
NATASHA HENSTRIDGE AND GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINEE HARRY HAMLIN STAR IN 'YOU
LUCKY DOG,' A HALLMARK CHANNEL IN HD ORIGINAL MOVIE PREMIERING JUNE 26
When a New York City fashion designer returns home to her family's
struggling farm, she finds new purpose training a herding dog, and
discovers that her four-legged shepherd has the talent to turn an
increasingly inhospitable cattle farm into profitable sheep country in
"You Lucky Dog," a Hallmark Channel in HD Original Movie
premiering Saturday, June 26 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C). Natasha Henstridge
("Eli Stone") and four-time Golden Globe nominee Harry Hamlin
("Veronica Mars") star in the story about facing failure and
overcoming the odds.
After the sudden death of her mother, Lisa Rayborn (Henstridge) travels
home to small-town Rockton, where her brother, Jim (Hamlin), and dad, Clay
(Lawrence Dane, "Bride of Chucky"), are still mourning. To make
matters more difficult for the family, Jim has begun raising Merino sheep
on the farm against his father's wishes. Jim hopes the Merino fleece would
turn a better profit for the farm, but without a superior working dog, his
sheep have instead made him the laughing stock of the town.
Deciding to stay home and help, Lisa goes to the local animal shelter
and adopts Lucky, a Border Collie who Jim's prime nemesis in ranching has
just dumped. Jim wants nothing to do with Lucky knowing his biggest
competitor thought so little of the dog. But Lisa, who sees the underdog
in herself reflected in the pup, works vigorously with Lucky, and the dog
shows such remarkable progress that the siblings decide to enter her in
the town's annual herding dog contest. But when unforeseen disasters put
more than prize money in jeopardy, Lisa and Jim must ask more from Lucky
than they ever could have imagined.
