'Brothers and Sisters' thesp gets Hallmark gig
“Brothers and Sisters” co-star Emily VanCamp has been tapped to star in “Let Them Shine,” the upcoming Hallmark Hall of Fame telepic for CBS.
The made-for centers on a young, inexperienced teacher who overcomes impossible odds to make a difference in the lives of homeless students.
The script, based on the book “Nobody Don’t Love Nobody” by Stacey Bess, was penned by Camille Thomasson, who wrote the entry in the long-running Hallmark/CBS series, “When Love Is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story.”
Jeff Bleckner is set as director; Brent Shields and Gerald Molen are exec producers.
VanCamp’s recent feature credits include the thriller “Carriers.” She became familiar to TV auds through her role on the WB’s “Everwood.”
