Movie Shot in Danvers To Air on Sunday

The Hallmark Hall of Fame movie that was partially filmed in Danvers last fall is scheduled to air for the first time on Sunday.

Remember when Andy's Sunnyside Bowladrome was converted into a movie set for a day last fall?

The Water Street business became the setting last September for a scene in the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie "The Makeover." And that movie will air for the first time on Sunday on ABC.

In the scene shot in Danvers, Elliot Doolittle (played by David Walton) hosts a “Doolittle for Congress” event where he invited the public to come “bowl with their candidate,” the movie’s publicist, Ellen Nesselrode-Jasa, told Danvers Patch during the filming in September.

Walton teaches Hannah Higgins (played by Julia Stiles), his political consultant, to bowl in “an embarrassingly funny scene in front of reporters and their cameras.”

At the time, Nesselrode-Jasa said the movie was scheduled to air in late January and it has stuck to the schedule. ABC says the movie will air at 9 p.m. on Sunday. Locally, ABC is channel 5 and can also be seen on channel 9 from New Hampshire on cable.

The movie is a remake of George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion,” Nesselrode-Jasa said, set against a political backdrop. It also swaps the sexes of the lead characters from the original “Pygmalion.”

The movie was also shot in other areas of Massachusetts, including areas of Boston, Newton and Somerville.
