The Hallmark Channel telefilm "The Confession" is currently shooting in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area and extras are needed for scenes being filmed March 14th, 16th, and 20th, 2012. The movie is based on the second novel of "The Heritage of Lancaster County" trilogy from New York Times best-selling author Beverly Lewis. The first movie, "The Shunning" made its World Premiere, Saturday, April 16, 2011 on Hallmark Channel.

Set in Lancaster County, with its quaint Amish setting, each novel addresses issues of family, belonging, and community, providing a powerful look into a life of faith, a search for truth, and a promise of peace. In this Hallmark Channel sequel, Katie Lapp is torn from her close-knit Plain community in the painful ordeal called the shunning. But as she strikes out alone into the strange and sometimes dangerous "English" world, she is unaware that the man she loves is planning to return to his Amish family...and to her.

Three-time Emmy and two-time Golden Globe nominee Sherry Stringfield reprises her role of Laura Mayfield Bennett from "The Shunning". Katie Leclerc took over the role of Katie Lapp, played by Danielle Panabaker in the first film. The cast also includes Adrian Paul playing Sherry Stringfield's gambling addicted husband Dylan Bennett, and Cameron Deane Stewart plays the role of Daniel Fisher. Returning as Samuel and Rebecca Lapp are Bill Oberst Jr. and Sandra Van Natta respectively.

The extremely talented producer and filmmaker Michael Landon Jr. is directing "The Confession" from an screenplay written by himself and Brian Bird. Landon and Bird's company, Believe Pictures, is producing along with Lightworks Entertainment. This is the same production team that brought you the first movie in this trilogy, "The Shunning" - also filmed in the Winston-Salem and the surrounding areas.
