‘Petals on the Wind’ Alum to Star in Hallmark Channel’s ‘The Bridge’ Adaptation

Wyatt Nash, who starred in Lifetime’s telepic “Petals on the Wind,” will be the leading man in Hallmark Channel’s television movie “The Bridge,” Variety has learned.

The Bridge,” the TV adaptation of the bestselling Karen Kingsbury novel, is a love story that follows a young couple, Molly Allen, who moves to small-town Tennessee for college, and country singer student Ryan Kelly. The two meet on the first day of class and, as their relationship grows, they come across many obstacles, but the pair is shepherded to pursue their dreams by the owners of a local bookstore called the Bridge.

Nash will play Ryan, who is described as a Southern born-and-bred aspiring musician who falls head-over-heels for Molly (who is yet to be cast).

Other than “Petals on the Wind,” in which he played Christopher Dollanganger Jr., alongside Heather Graham, Rose McIver and Ellen Burstyn, Nash’s previous credits include “Pretty Little Liars,” “Mistresses” and the short-lived NBC comedy “1600 Penn.”

Written by Jamie Pachino, Dan Angel and David Epps will exec produce Hallmark’s “The Bridge” with producer Kim Arnott. The TV movie is slated to premiere later this year.

Nash is repped by Innovative Artists and Principal Entertainment LA.
