Rocky Road - UP Original Movie
Premiere: Sunday, July 20, 2014 at 8:00 P.M. EDT/7 P.M. PDT
In the UP Original Movie Rocky Road, Harrison Burke (Mark Salling) has the executive apartment, expense account and big office at a prestigious Wall Street investment banker. He is a handsome, 30-something player with crisp suits and caviar tastes, but it all melts down when a big company merger falls through. As the firm downsizes, Harrison finds himself out of a job, a home and deeply in debt thanks to his high-flying lifestyle. One bus ride later, he’s on his parents’ doorstep in a quaint New Hampshire town.
Harrison’s parents Ben (Nicolas Campbell) and Marla (Deborah Tennant) are surprised and thrilled to see him, but suspicious. So, Harrison pretends that he is taking a long overdue vacation, rather than suddenly stuck in his worst nightmare – living back home, working at his father’s “Rocky Road” ice cream truck business, and competing for his old route with fellow driver, 16-year-old Razor (Jahmil French). Plus, his local Reverend (Scott Thompson) and neighbor Fiona (Robin Duke) seem to have it out for him. On the up side, Suzie Barnes (Rebecca Dalton), his old girlfriend, is still in town. Suzie is now a local artist and dating Rick (Steve Byers), an old rival. As Harrison settles in, he rediscovers the charm of home and learns how alike fathers and sons can be.
