ORPHANAGE OWNERS GRACE AND LILLIAN FACE TOWNSPEOPLE RESISTANCE AND A MAJOR DISASTER IN THE SERIES PREMIERE OF ‘WHEN HOPE CALLS’ FEBRUARY 23RD
STUDIO CITY, CA – February 5, 2020 – Having newly set up their orphanage in “New Hope,” sisters Lillian (Morgan Kohan) and Grace (Jocelyn Hudon) face unwelcoming neighbors in the series premiere of “When Hope Calls” Season 1, on Sunday, February 23, on Hallmark Channel. Especially cold to the pair is Tess Stewart (Wendy Crewson), who has unresolved issues with Lillian’s family. Constable Gabriel Kinslow (Ryan-James Hatanaka) reacquaints himself with his neighbors after returning to town and is charmed by his first encounter with Lillian. Meanwhile, Chuck (Greg Hovanessian) – the town’s veterinarian and Tess’s son – helps Grace when the cow she purchased from his mother fails to produce milk, and is impressed by Grace’s tenacity. Despite their disagreements, the town bands together when a crisis strikes during the grand opening of a new hotel and puts lives – including Lillian’s – at risk. This disaster helps Lillian and Grace make headway toward acceptance but creates a mystery for Gabriel to solve.
