Marilu Henner & Brooke D'Orsay Star in Hallmark Channel's JUNE IN JANUARY Tonight
Save the date! Five-time Golden Globe(R) nominee Marilu Henner ("Taxi," "Hitched for the Holidays") stars with Brooke D'Orsay ("Royal Pains") and Wes Brown ("Deception," "Shadow on the Mesa") in the Hallmark Channel Original Movie "June in January," premiering tonight, January 11 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C). In the film, D'Orsay plays a newly engaged bride whose dream wedding is threatened by her scheming future mother-in-law, played by Henner, when a sudden change in plans pushes her perfect outdoor June wedding up to a wintry January date.
June Fraser (D'Orsay) has envisioned her wedding day her entire life and even managed to plan every detail with her loving mother, Kathryn (Anne Marie DeLuis, "Cedar Cove"), before Kathryn's passing only a few years ago. Now an adult, June has met Alex Blackwell (Brown), a handsome attorney who hails from a very well-to-do family, with his intimidating and icy mother, Diana (Henner), at the helm. After an exciting New Year's Eve engagement, June can't wait to plan the June wedding she's always wanted to honor her mother's memory with and she starts using a portfolio of bridal magazine clippings she created with Kathryn as a guide. Then, when Alex suddenly receives a job offer in Cleveland and needs to move right away, he asks June if they can move the wedding date up to January - just three weeks away! In a panic, June and Alex accept Diana's offer to host the wedding at the Blackwell's gorgeous home, giving Diana the footing she needs to plan the event her way. June tries to salvage her special day and pull off the perfect summer wedding she's always wanted despite the chilly calendar change and Diana's cold calculating scheming.
