About the Program
The multi-generational family drama follows Abby O’Brien (Meghan Ory), a high-powered career woman, divorcee and mother to twin daughters, as she adjusts to life back in her hometown of Chesapeake Shores. Abby now balances a budding relationship with her former high school sweetheart, Trace (Jesse Metcalfe), working for a firm that does business with her uncompromising father Mick (Treat Williams) and raising two young daughters. Returning to her hometown means engaging in the lives of her siblings: Jess, a free-spirit trying to succeed as a bed and breakfast owner; Bree, a playwright who buys a bookstore in Chesapeake Shores after moving back home from Chicago; Kevin, a soldier adjusting to civilian life and new romance; and Connor, a new lawyer establishing his professional career. Having returned to Chesapeake Shores shortly after Abby, the O’Brien’s once-estranged mother Megan (Barbara Niven) strives to reestablish relationships with Abby and her siblings, though the O’Brien clan primarily looks to its wise grandmother Nell (Diane Ladd) for guidance as they navigate life, love, career and romance.
