Nashville, TN (May 14, 2021)
Mary 4 Mayor starring Corbin Bernsen (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Life With Dog, Psych) and Amanda Pays (Max Headroom, The Flash) is set to release in June 2021. The story centers around a small-town high school student Mary, played by Cameron Protzman (20th Century Women, Mad Men), who decides to challenge the current Mayor over the future direction of her beloved home. Since the Mayor is also her father, drama heightens when she decides to enter the race and run against him.
What began for eighteen-year-old Mary Parson as a retaliation against her father, who abandoned his family after a midlife crisis, turns into a full-scale war as she becomes the lone challenger to his re-election for Mayor. During her campaign which is backed by her high school friends, she discovers what she believes is the cause of the town’s economic decline creating hopelessness in their community. Small businesses have closed their doors and Main Street is disappearing. The town could actually use new leadership and forward thinking and suddenly running for mayor takes on a whole new purpose! Mary comes up with some solutions that ignite and inspire the small town, turning it back into a great summer vacation community! Unfortunately in the midst of this revitalization, she begins to uncover the “what” has been working behind the scenes creating the economic slump and now is going to block her victory. She also discovers how she inadvertently became a part of the problem. Before Mary can do what she set out to do, she may have to overcome the same distractions and human pitfalls that plagued her father.
What begins as a story of “pay back,” becomes a tale of a young woman’s novel ideas on how to reinvent her community and, in doing so, make peace with her father. Armed with facts, love and faith, Mary works hard to save her town and her family, but also learns some truths about how quickly one can lose their way in politics!
