Perfectly Jane Seymour
Jane Seymour enlivens this Hall Channel TV movie sequel to 2008's DEAR PRUDENCE about a Martha-Stewart-like TV personality. This time there's a corporate takeover and an attempted makeover of the show and an old lover who reappears. Valerie Azlynn is quite funny as the ditzy weather bunny who is being foisted on the show in order to improve the -- harrumph! -- demographics.
Director Paul Schneider fills out the piece with some nice auctorial comments; as Miss Seymour and Katherine Flynn as her daughter and producer walk and talk about how to present a particular guest, they finish by noting it will be a 'walk and talk' and the camera offers the audience a nice flourish to let us know that is what we've just seen. A pleasant setting and competent actors make this one that is worth seeing.
