Becca Tobin (“Glee,” “Love at First Dance”) and Ryan Rottman (Billionaire Boys Club, “Christmas Wonderland”) star in “Sister of the Bride” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, June 29 (9 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel.
About The Movie:
After a six-month romance, Stephanie (Tobin) and Ben (Rottman) go to Palm Springs to tell her family they’re engaged, and upon arrival at her parents’ vacation home, they learn Stephanie’s sister is also engaged to her longtime boyfriend. Since both sisters want July 4th weddings at the beloved house, it’s decided Stephanie will wait till next year, unaware the place is up for sale. Graciously accepting she must find another venue for her nuptials, Stephanie throws herself into helping her sister launch the perfect Independence Day wedding, just four weeks away. Luckily, Ben pitches in and everyone, but Stephanie’s father, adores him. A six-month courtship is too quick for this protective dad, and he gets Ben wondering if he really knows Stephanie, especially after finding out she was once engaged.
Another issue looms too. Ben’s been offered a job with his economics idol in Oxford; and Stephanie, an anthropology professor, is near tenure. Neither wants the other to make a sacrifice, and keep tabling the discussion. But days before her wedding, Stephanie’s sister and her fiancé are called to work in San Francisco, and his grandmother breaks a hip. Wondering if the universe is trying to slow them down, these future brides and grooms surely have some fireworks awaiting them.
“Sister of the Bride” is a Hybrid production. The executive producers are Jeffrey Schenck and Barry Barnholtz. The producers are Brian Nolan and Peter Sullivan. Sam Irvin directed from a screenplay by Anna White.
