Alison Sweeney Set to Star in the Hallmark Channel Original Movie 'Two In'
Alison Sweeney ("The Biggest Loser") and Greg Vaughn ("General Hospital," "Days of Our Lives") will star in the Hallmark Channel Original Movie, "Two In," it was announced by Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel. The film begins production in Los Angeles today for a World Premiere in 2013.
With nearly 20 consecutive years under her belt starring as Samantha "Sami" Brady on one of America's most beloved soaps, "Days of Our Lives," Sweeney is a fixture on daytime television. She also just completed her 10th consecutive season hosting the hit primetime series, "The Biggest Loser," and has guest-starred on countless other shows, including "Iron Chef," "Friends," and many more. Sweeney also recently hosted and executive produced the first season of "Hollywood Girls Night."
The film co-stars Greg Vaughn, known and loved as Lucky Spencer on perennial fan favorite "General Hospital." Vaughn also starred in another popular soap as Diego Guttierez on "The Young and the Restless." Most recently, Greg Vaughn starred on primetime's "GCB."
"Alison Sweeney's on-camera roles as Sami Brady and as the host of 'The Biggest Loser' are balanced by her talents as an author, director, producer, wife and mother," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel.
"Sweeney is a great get because she fits the Hallmark Channel brand perfectly as someone who celebrates life's special moments every day," Vicary concluded.
In "Two In," Sweeney plays a single mom working at a 911 call center who receives an emergency call from a firefighter who has broken a leg while fighting a fire. Circumstances repeatedly draw the two together until their mutual attraction cannot be ignored.
"Two In" is a Larry Levinson production. Executive Producers are Larry Levinson and Randy Pope. Jim Wilberger produces. Ernie Barbarash directs from an original teleplay by Karen Struck and Jim Buck.
