"Mending Fences" Starring Angie Dickinson To Premier July 18 On Hallmark Channel

Acclaimed actresses Angie Dickinson and Laura Leighton are set to headline the world premier of the Hallmark Channel Original movie "Mending Fences". Three-time Emmy nominee and two-time Golden Globe winner Dickinson ("Pay It Forward") and Golden Globe nominee Leighton ("Melrose Place") star as a mother daughter duo living in a rural community rife with big town problems.

Leighton plays Kelly Faraday, a television reporter who moves back to her hometown with her teenage daughter Kamilla (Shanley Caswell, "Zoey 101"). Believing she has escaped from the urban flurry, Kelly returns home to find the town in the middle of a heated land crisis.

Kelly, her mother Ruth Hanson (Dickinson) and her ex-boyfriend Walt (David Lee Smith, "CSI: Miami") work in unison to halt casino developments which pose a threat to the town's water supply. The water rights battle and the ensuing struggle with defiant citizens serve as a backdrop for the core storyline centering around Kelley's personal re-discovery of her small town roots.

The Hallmark Channel had to perform a little schedule mending by pushing back the movie's premier from the intended airdate of July 4. The program is now timetabled for Saturday, July 18.
