Young modeling-agency assistant Helen (Kate Hudson) has a powerful boss (Helen Mirren) and a career that’s right on track. But just as she’s about to be promoted, she’s named the sole guardian to her late sister’s (Felicity Huffman) three children (including Hayden Panettiere). Stepping into unfamiliar territory as the kids’ makeshift mother, Helen tries to keep it together while managing a budding friendship with a local pastor (John Corbett).
The guiding force behind some of the most popular films and television shows of the late 20th century, Emmy-nominated writer, director and producer Garry Marshall rose from the writers’ room on series like “The Dick Van Dyke Show” (CBS, 1961-66) to producer and creator of such enduring hits as “The Odd Couple” (ABC, 1970-75), “Happy Days” (ABC, 1974-1984), “Laverne and Shirley” (ABC, 1976-1983) and “Mork and Mindy” (ABC, 1978-1982).
