Sarah Drew will star in new Hallmark Movies & Mysteries drama, Guiding Emily
Hallmark star Sarah Drew will star in the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries movie Guiding Emily opposite Eric McCormack as the voice of her character’s guide dog.
Premiering Friday, September 8 at 9/8c to coincide with National Service Dog Month, Guiding Emily features Sarah Drew as the titular heroine, whose “life veers off course when she becomes permanently blind after an unfortunate rock-climbing accident and struggles to cope with her new reality. Meanwhile, a potential guide dog named Garth” — whose thoughts are voiced by McCormack — “is also struggling with his rigorous training. With the help of Emily’s friend Matthew, played by Antonio Cupo and Garth’s trainer Katie (Altered Carbon’s Sharon Taylor), both make headway in their important transitions. Through a series of missed encounters, both overcome their obstacles and Garth ends up being paired with Emily. With Garth by her side, Emily takes on her biggest challenge yet: opening her heart.”
“Shooting Guiding Emily was a deeply moving experience that allowed me to enter into the blind and partially sighted community in a very powerful way,” Sarah Drew said in a statement. “We were honored to have two actresses from the community play roles in the film, and sitting with them both and hearing their stories was transformative for me and for our crew.”
“I was also honored to visit the Guide Dogs of America open house the weekend before we started shooting and was able to tour the facility and learn all about the process for raising service dogs and the sacrifice puppy raisers make to train them for two years and then send them off to a member of the blind and partially sighted community to partner with them,” Drew added. “Guiding Emily walks the audience into this world in a moving, tender, educational and compassionate way. I hope the audience will be as affected by this film as we all were making it.”
