GREAT AMERICAN FAMILY ANNOUNCES CANDACE CAMERON BURE PRESENTS:

JUST IN TIME, STARRING BROADWAY SENSATION LAURA OSNES,

PETER BRYANT, AND GREYSTON HOLT, WORLD PREMIERE, MARCH 26

NEW YORK, NY – March 5, 2024 – Great American Family, the authentic home of quality, original family and faith-based programming, proudly announces the exclusive World Premiere of a Candace Cameron Bure Presents, original movie, Just In Time, starring Broadway’s Laura Osnes, Peter Bryant, and Greyston Holt, Tuesday, March 26 (8 p.m. ET). The film is the fourth production under the Candace Cameron Bure Presents studio banner. The film marks Executive Producer, Bure’s, first-time working with actress and singer, Laura Osnes, whose successes includes a Tony AwardÒ nomination for Best Actress in a musical for her role as Bonnie Parker in Bonnie & Clyde and a second Tony AwardÒ nomination for the title role in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.

“Candace Cameron Bure has a knack for finding beautifully crafted, meaningful stories that she and her team nurture into great family films,” said Bill Abbott, President & CEO, Great American Media. “We are so proud to include the wonderful Laura Osnes in our family of talent and ’Just In Time’ is that little gem of a movie viewers will want to watch over and over for years to come,” Abbott concluded.

In Just in Time, Hannah (Osnes) and her husband, Rowan (Holt) have focused all their time, energy, and attention into trying to have a baby. The pressure to complete their family starts weighing heavily on their relationship. The couple is left questioning if having a child is the right thing to do and if they are still right for one another. When Hannah receives a call from a stranger, named Franklin (Bryant), who claims to have discovered an antique on the beach bearing an inscription unique to Hannah and Rowan, she reluctantly agrees to meet him to look. Franklin is certain the watch is a long-lost heirloom from Hannah’s family. In the end, Franklin’s patient approach helps Hannah see that the answers to all she seeks will be revealed in God’s time. 

“In this stunningly aspirational Easter presentation, Laura Osnes and Peter Bryant will bring you to tears. With the Candace Cameron Bure presents banner, we strive to deliver to our audience deep, meaningful, faith-filled entertainment of the highest quality.” added Executive producer and CandyRock CEO, Bure.
