Accidental Friendship, a Movie Debut of the Friendship Between an LAPD Officer and Skidrow Woman

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department is pleased to announce the world premiere and screening of the Hallmark Channel’s Original Movie, “Accidental Friendship”.

On Thursday, November 13, 2008, the Hallmark Movie Channel is hosting a private reception and world premiere of its original movie, depicting the unlikely friendship between a hardworking and compassionate Los Angeles Police Officer, and one of the many homeless women who live on the streets in the heart of LA’s Skidrow District.  The event will take place at The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills.

The movie tells the inspiring story of the life of Yvonne Caldwell (played by actress Chandra Wilson), who gradually found her comfortable life transformed as she went from joblessness to homelessness to a life of total destitution.  Yvonne was befriended by LAPD Officer Tami Baumann (played by actress Kathleen Munroe), who was affected by the way Yvonne cared for her three pet dogs, Bebe, Mimi and Peewee.  Yvonne could hardly care for her own well being, yet she made sure her dogs were well cared for.  Yvonne and Officer Buamann found common ground in their mutual love of animals and their friendship blossomed from there.  With Officer Baumann’s help, Yvonne was ultimately able to regain the comfort of her former life and the hope of a brighter future.

This heartwarming story poignantly reveals the positive impact one person can have in the life of another by sampling reaching out a helping hand.

Ben Vereen also has a starring role in this film. He and the other actors, including cast members from “Greys Anatomy,” Yvonne herself, and Officer Baumann will all be in attendance.  

This true story will air on the Hallmark Channel on Saturday, November 15, 2008, at 9:00 p.m.
