We of course shared the news on our social media feeds and later on AmberBenson.TV itself. I have a very exciting update especially if you're an Amber fan living in the USA Family History Mysteries: Buried Past will be premiering on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel on Sunday, 8 January at 7/6 C
The 8th of January is as many fans will know Amber's birthday and I think it's amazing that Amber’s brand-new original mystery has its premiere on her birthday.
If this is the first time you're hearing about Family History Mysteries: Buried past let me tell you a more about this exciting new mystery.
Family History Mysteries: Buried Past centres on Sophie McClaren played by Janel Parrish as a genealogist. She brings families together using her expertise and ability to dig into the past to find answers.
Update: If you have read the Deadline.com article you may have noticed that I have made an edit and changed Sophie’s surname. A fan who has had the opportunity to see the movie told me that in Buried Past the lead character's name is Sophie McClaren not McClure as reported by Deadline.com, it’s also the name the character is given on IMDb too. Having checked IMDb again there are now two listings for the movie, this new version has Sophie’s surname as McClaren. I'm not criticising either of these outlets as information may have been correct at the time of publication and I don't want to speculate on what might have happened. I have seen a screenshot however that does confirm the character’s name as Sophie McClaren.
Sophie's skills and knowledge shall be tested like never before when she discovers her close friend Jonathan is in need of a bone marrow transplant. Help is on hand from Jonathan's twin brother Jackson who also happens to be Sophie's old flame. Together Sophie and Jackson search for the twins birth father in a bid to save Jonathan. As Sophie and Jackson work together it gives her the push to finally look into her own past.
Hallmark have released a trailer for the movie ahead of its premiere which I have embedded below.
Unfortunately for UK fans I don't yet have any information on when it will be shown here. I am planning to contact Hallmark to enquire about this and if I get any news I will share it with you.
In the meantime though I'm still incredibly excited for Amber but also for fans and friends who are based in the USA and will get the opportunity to see Buried Past for the first time on Sunday. It's a fantastic birthday present for Amber and another reason to celebrate.
