Updated December 21, 2015:
"Unleashing Mr. Darcy" staring "General Hospital's" Ryan Paevey (Port Charles' Nathan West) will premiere on January 23 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on the Hallmark Channel. The movie's premise has been slightly changed from Teri Wilson's book on which it is based on. In this updated version Elizabeth Scott (Cindy Busby) gets the opportunity to professionally show her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in a fancy New York dog show, where she meets the aristocratic and rude dog judge Donovan Darcy (Paevey). A chain of misunderstandings unfolds during the competition, complicating their mutual attraction, though it turns out Mr. Darcy is far more kind and interesting than Elizabeth ever imagined.

Original Story November 23, 2015:
"General Hospital's" Ryan Paevey (Port Charles' Nathan West) has been busy up in Canada filming the upcoming Hallmark Channel film "Unleashing Mr. Darcy." The movie is based on Teri Wilson's book of the same name which centers around Manhattanite Elizabeth Scott who heads to England to escape a work scandal and care for a pack of show dogs. Scott believes she doesn't need a man in her life, that is until she meets the charming yet arrogant billionaire dog breeder Donovan Darcy (Paevey).
Wilson has been tweeting about the movie adaptation of her novel, which is expected to wrap filming this Wednesday.
