'Rise and Shine, Benedict Stone' will premiere on September 26, Sunday, at 9/8 c, on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.  


Gemma is the teenage daughter of Benedict's estranged brother. The two Stone brothers had a fallout and haven't spoken to each other in almost 20 years, since Charlie left for America. Reckless and stubborn, Gemma invites herself into Benedict's world and turns his orderly life upside down. However, she might just be exactly what he needs to get his life back on track.


With promising characters and irresistible charm, 'Rise and Shine, Benedict Stone' is a reminder of the unbreakable bonds of family and shows that having someone to embrace life with is always better than standing on your own.
