“Days of our Lives” actor Shawn Christian (ex-Daniel Jonas) is reuniting with former “Summerland” co-star Taylor Cole in the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries original, “Ruby Herring Mysteries: Silent Witness,” premiering Sunday, January 20 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on the network.
In the movie, Cole (who is Christian’s real-life stepdaughter) plays the title character — a television consumer reporter — who is attending her sister’s wedding at a picturesque mountain resort in Seattle. When Ruby gets entangled in a murder mystery after an old friend is found to have drowned under suspicious circumstances, she takes the advice of her father, John Herring (Christian), a legendary investigative crime reporter, and begins conducting an unorthodox investigation alongside Jake Killian (Stephen Huszar). With the devilishly handsome, by the-book Seattle P.D. homicide detective taking the lead, Ruby must find a way to crack the case before the wrong person is sent up for murder, and before the real killer strikes again.
“Ruby Herring Mysteries: Silent Witness” is a Crown Media Productions, LLC production. Charles Cooper and Harvey Kahn are producers, and Beth Miller is the executive producer. Paul Ziller directed from a script by Andrew Canning and Lynn Keller.
The movie premiere Sunday, January 20 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
