Hallmark Gives Series Order to Drama 'Ride' Created by Rebecca Boss, Chris Masi and Sherri Cooper-Landsman

Hallmark has today given a series order to the original drama series Ride based on an original script by husband and wife writing team Rebecca Boss and Chris Masi, who will serve as showrunners alongside Sherri Cooper-Landsman.

The multigenerational family drama will follow the lives of the Murrays, part of a rodeo dynasty going back a generation, as they struggle to keep their beloved ranch afloat. After a tragic loss, each character embarks on an empowering journey of transformation and self-discovery while also uncovering a twisted web of secrets, threatening to tear the family and their small Colorado town apart at the seams. Emotions run high and clashes are common in the complicated Murray clan, but they are a tight-knit group who don't give up easily. And the three strong women of the family - widowed rodeo queen Missy, matriarch Isabel, and former teen run-away Valeria - resolve to stand strong against all challenges and save their land, come what may.

Boss, Masi and Cooper-Landsman will executive produce with John Morayniss, Carolyn Newman, Virginia Rankin, Greg Gugliotta, F.J. Denny, Elana Barry, Josh Adler, Jordy Randall, Tom Cox and director Paolo Barzman. Endeavor Content, Blink49 Studios, Seven24 Films, Nitelite Entertainment and Circle of Confusion will produce.

Production on the drama's first season will begin this summer in Calgary, Alberta in Canada for a 2023 premiere.

"As we continue to grow our slate of heartfelt and thought-provoking series, we are delighted to get to work with a creative team behind some of our favorite shows, including our talented and creative showrunners, the incredible producing team at Blink49 and award-winning executive producers Greg Gugliotta, Elana Barry and Josh Adler," said Lisa Hamilton Daly, Executive Vice President of Development, Crown Media Family Networks.
