Family entertainment channel UP presents its original movie Dear Viola, a romantic drama set in a charming seaside village, starring Kellie Martin (“ER,” “Life Goes On).
Martin also is an executive producer with Entertainment One (eOne)’s John Moranyniss (“Hell on Wheels,” “Klondike”) and Ira Pincus (“Goodnight for Justice,” “Window Wonderland”).
Laurie Lynd (“Murdoch Mysteries,” “Ghostly Encounters”) directs the film from a script by Lee Rose (“Haven,” “Weeds”) and Kathleen McGhee-Anderson (“Lincoln Heights,” “Touched by an Angel”).
Filmed in picturesque seaside Cobourg, outside of Toronto, Canada, Dear Viola will premiere on UP on Sunday, March 16, at 7:00 p.m. EDT.
When the writer of a local, obsessively read, beloved advice column, entitled “Dear Viola,” decides to retire and leave the quaint seaside village of Bellport, seasoned editor Earl Bellamy (Neil Crone) is taken aback.
While hoping to keep a lid on this news and his paper going, Earl unexpectedly finds a brand-new “Viola” column on his desk.
UP presents Dear Viola, an Entertainment One production. Entertainment One is also the international distributor.
