After 13 hugely successful films for Hallmark Channel, things got personal for network favorite Wes Brown on his 14th, Sweet Pecan Summer. "This story actually came from my wife," he proudly reported during a recent chat with MediaVillage. "I got credit for it and executive produced it, as it was purchased through my production company. But that being said, the story is loosely based on a story about my wife Amanda's aunt Carol and a piece of property she was selling. Some things were changed, but real people and real-life events informed this really nice story. When we shot it, knowing everyone was employed because of [my wife] was really, really, cool."
