Elliott and Sharon Case Star in Hallmark Original Movie "Dad's
FULL-TIME DAD REPORTING FOR DUTY!
'JAG' STAR DAVID JAMES ELLIOTT AND DAYTIME EMMY(R) WINNER SHARON CASE
STAR IN 'DAD'S HOME,' A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE PREMIERING JUNE 19
Sometimes losing something is all it takes to realize what you already
have. When a single dad is fired from the job that has been keeping him
out of his kids' lives, he is faced with the reality of becoming a
stay-at-home parent in "Dad's Home," a Hallmark Channel Original
Movie premiering Saturday, June 19 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8c). "JAG"
veteran David James Elliott and "The Young and the Restless"
star Sharon Case come together in a story about a workaholic who is thrown
into dad duty, just in time to heal the family bonds he has been breaking.
Widower Ben Westman (Elliott) barely knows his two kids, 12-year-old
Lindsay (Madison Davenport, "Kitt Kittridge: An American Girl")
and eight-year-old Dylan (Will Shadley, "Dirty Sexy Money"). As
a busy advertising executive, Ben hires housekeepers to keep things
running smoothly at home. But suddenly, that all changes when he loses his
job and must fire his help, take over the household chores and become a
full-time father. Completely unprepared, Ben makes a mess of the cooking
and cleaning in the house, and discovers his children have been growing up
without him. When he finds out that Dylan has quit little league without
telling him and Lindsay is becoming more consumed with fashion magazines
and boys, Ben faces the challenge of reconnecting with his children while
mourning the loss of both his wife and his career.
Eventually, Ben gets the hang of things with the help of his brother,
Brian (Jay Huguley, "Brothers & Sisters"), and Dylan's
friendly, third-grade teacher, Hope (Case). But the kids are still getting
used to Dad's rules. Lindsay sneaks out with a boy, and Dylan gets in
trouble for starting a fight at school. To deal with this, Ben turns to
Hope, and there is an instant attraction between them. As Ben spends more
time with his kids and gets to know Hope better, he finds out being a
stay-at-home dad isn't so bad. But then, a great interview lands Ben a job
offer in Cleveland, and he must ultimately decide what is best not just
for himself, but also for his family.
