It tells the story of “a free-spirited mom who moves her family from the west coast to the Midwest” where extended family lives.

Texas Battle (Marcus Walton, Bold and the Beautiful) is keeping busy, having finished production as Richard in the upcoming movie 10 Minutes Gone and moved on to filming his role as Sergeant Tull in another flick, Trauma Center. Both films are Bruce Willis-led productions, with the first billed as a crime thriller that follows Willis’ character as he fights to piece together the missing 10 minutes of his memory to determine who sabotaged him during a bank heist gone wrong. Trauma Center, meanwhile, centers on Willis as a police officer assigned to protect an injured paramedic and witness who is being hunted by two corrupt cops.
