Kiernan Shipka, the girl who plays Don Draper’s daughter Sally in "Mad Men," will star in an upcoming Hallmark Channel movie, the channel has announced.
The movie is "Smooch."
According to the announcement, "The movie is an updated loosely based, live-action homage to the Brothers Grimm short story ‘The Frog King,’ in which a hapless Prince is turned into a frog by a witch’s cruel charm. He must convince a Princess to take him home and treat him like a king. Reluctantly, she does, and on the third day, the Princess awakens to find that her kindness has transformed the frog into a handsome Prince, and the pair lives happily ever after."
Shipka plays a character named Zoe, "a young girl obsessed by fairytales and happy endings who is searching for the perfect man for her widowed mother Gwen (Kellie Martin)," the announcement said.
The telefilm "begins production in Detroit on Oct. 23 and is slated to premiere Valentine’s [Day] 2011 on Hallmark Channel," according to the announcement.
