Take that break!


A work-life balance is a skill many people have yet to master.

In the new Hallmark Channel film, The 27-Hour Day, Andrew Walker and his co-star Autumn Reeser go on a journey of self-discovery.

Walker is a familiar face on Hallmark, but this time, the important message of mental health struck a nerve.

"That's what drew me to the film. This is something outside the box. It's just this story that I haven't seen Hallmark tell before," Walker said.

The actor plays the owner of a resort that aims to help people who are stressed in their daily lives. Autumn Reeser's character checks into the resort for much-needed break.

"I push her character to, you know, just to relax and let things flow a little bit more and just have trust and faith in the fact that things will really work out. She pushes my character to take the bull by the horns to kind of have a little more initiative."

Walker says these movies are "self-reflective" and include many important lessons.

"I left with a lot of answered questions and just some clarity and some point of view on my life."

The 27-Hour Day premieres Saturday, August 7th, on Hallmark Channel.

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
