DEAR PRUDENCE - 2011 - TV

Produced by: Les Alexander; Rob Gilmer (writer)
Summer Pictures (LLC)

Synopsis: Prudence MacIntyre (Seymour) is asked to make changes to her successful television show when the network sends in new producers to revamp her image. To her surprise, one of the producers is an old flame and the other is a seedy womanizer who enchants Prudence’s daughter. With the help of her faithful sidekick Nigel (Matt Jones), Prudence rekindles the love she thought she lost, protects her daughter from the wrong guy, and finds a way to keep her show right on track.

From writer, Rob Gilmer: "This movie is funny, entertaining, emotionally engaging -- much like the early Katharine Hepburn movies. The shooting is going beautifully and the story lines involving Prudence, her daughter (Annie), Nigel and Joe Lando's character are moving, funny, emotional and, yes, romantic. I just ...know Jane and Joe's fans and fans of the 'Prudence' franchise are going to love this sequel. It's more engaging and emotionally compelling, in my opinion, than the first 'Prudence' and, I hope, will encourage Hallmark to do many more. Joe and Jane are very clearly enjoying being able to work together again and Jane and Katie are such a dynamic mother-daughter partnership."
