Director Dean Bennett

DEAN BENNETT Directs HEARTLAND CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

Alberta-based Dean Bennett directed the original pilot of Heartland and has gone on to direct many episodes of this ratings-winning family drama.  His numerous credits include directing Waking Up Wally: The Wayne Gretzky Story and Distant Drumming: A North of 60 Mystery.

Lou (Michelle Morgan) is trying to forget that her new husband Peter may not be able to spend Christmas with her due to his father’s illness and so she obsesses even more than usual about making everything perfect for a traditional family Christmas.

But Lou’s plans are altered by an anonymous call about starving and abandoned horses trapped in an avalanche in the remote Rocky Mountain area of Pike River. Amy (Amber Marshall) of course insists that they go and check the situation out. Lou is not happy, but with Amy’s assurance that they’ll be back in plenty of time for Christmas, she and Ty (Graham Wardle) head off on the long trek to Pike River.
