Production Underway for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Original DARROW & DARROW

Production has begun on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries original DARROW & DARROW, starring Kimberly Williams-Paisley ("Father of the Bride"), Tom Cavanagh ("The Flash," "Ed") and Wendie Malick ("Hot in Cleveland," "Just Shoot Me"). From Emmy Award (R) winner Phoef Sutton, whose credits include "Boston Legal" and "Cheers," shooting is taking place in and around Vancouver, B.C.

"Darrow & Darrow" follows the life of Claire Darrow (Williams-Paisley), an idealistic lawyer who fights for what's right, regardless of whether it makes her a dime. Kay (Malick) is her estranged mother, who suddenly reenters the picture after losing her job at a New York law firm after taking the fall for an insider trading scandal. The pair clashes on nearly everything, especially on the best way to raise Claire's daughter, Louise (Lilah Fitzgerald), a bright 12-year-old with an older soul. Further complicating Claire's life is Miles Strasburg (Cavanagh), the A.D.A. While he's her adversary in the courtroom, outside of court Miles tries to make a case for taking their professional relationship to a more personal level.

"We're thrilled to be working with Phoef Sutton, who has one of the most unique voices in television and proven track record for creating extraordinary, multilayered characters," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks.
