Kevin McGarry Is Starring in a Trilogy Movie Series with Lacey Chabert
The movie trilogy is called The Wedding Veil and stars Lacey Chabert, Alison Sweeney, and Autumn Reeser. McGarry will also be starring in the series, Good Housekeeping reported.
Chabert will also be the executive producer of the new movie series.
Chabert told Good Housekeeping about the series: “This project is, quite literally, a dream come true for me and one that I have been deeply invested in. Both Allison and Autumn are incredibly talented, smart and wonderful women and actors. I’m thrilled to be able to finally get to work with them and tell this very special story!”
Michelle Vicary, EVP Programming at Crown Media Family Networks, said about the movie trilogy: “While our channel is associated with romance, a core tenet of the Hallmark brand is celebrating love in its many facets, including family bonds and enduring friendships. Our programming is reflecting that more and more. What better way to celebrate female friendships than to bring together three beloved actors from our network, Lacey Chabert, Alison Sweeney and Autumn Reeser.”
The first movie is expected to release in 2022, with production having just started.
The series is inspired by a book by Lori Wilde, originally called There Goes the Bride: Wedding Veil Wishes Book 1 (now called Long, Tall Texan.) Good Housekeeping reported that the series is inspired by the book, but will diverge from the plot.
