Too Close to Home
An 8-part drama, TOO CLOSE TO HOME, tells
the story of a young woman from a modest upbringing who discovers she
may have a bright future in Washington D.C.'s fast-paced political
scene. When Anna (Danielle Savre) leaves her trailer park home in
Alabama in a cloud of dust, she cuts all ties with her family and buries
every element of her checkered past. Her friends in Washington think
she comes from a wealthy family and know nothing of her real upbringing.
Suddenly, the real Anna is exposed when she causes a major political
scandal and makes national headlines for her part in an affair with one
of the nation's most powerful players. With nowhere to turn, she's
forced to find sanctuary in the only place she has left - home.
Anna's new reality may prove too much for
her to handle. Back in the ironically named town of Happy, Alabama,
Anna reunites with her controlling mother, Jolene (Trisha Rae Stahl);
her sweet yet overburdened sister, Bonnie (Kelly Sullivan); and her
drug-addicted sister, Shelby (Brooke Anne Smith). Although she's left
behind a mess in D.C., there are serious problems brewing in Happy and
Anna is quickly thrown into the drama. She also has to confront
unfinished business with her high school sweetheart, Brody (Brock
O'Hurn). Broken and battered, Anna must ultimately seek help and
forgiveness from the same people she abandoned for a "better" life.
