In addition to an announcement made this week that Naomi Judd will host a live six-week radio series, the mother Judd will star in a Hallmark Channel Original Movie, The Nearlyweds.
Pre-production for the romantic comedy begins this week in Vancouver and is scheduled to premiere Jan. 12 2013 at 8 pm ct.
Judd will play mother-in-law to co-star Danielle Panabaker (Piranha 3DD) in the story of three couples who discover the pastor who married them died without signing their wedding licenses. Aury Wallington wrote the film, based on the novel Nearlyweds by Beth Kendrick. Executive Producers are Bill Greenblatt and Kat Green. Jamie Goehring is producing.
Lawrence will play the uncle of 18-year old racer Ty Hargrove (Michael Roark, Dolphin Tale), as the story follows the young man’s dream to become a champion dirt track racer.
“I don’t think we could ask for a better ambassador to represent our message than Tracy Lawrence,” said Watt Key, writer of L.A. Dirt. “He’s lived and sings it through his music, Tracy Lawrence gets it right.”
Tundra Productions begins filming June 9 in Mobile, AL.
