Jesse McCartney & AJ Michalka: “Expecting Amish” Premieres July 19 on Lifetime
Mark your calendars for next Saturday! Jesse McCartney & AJ Michalka are teaming up for the new Lifetime movie “Expecting Amish”.
In the movie, 18-year-old Hannah Yoder (Michalka) is ready to become an Amish adult – which means baptism into the Church, and marriage to her boyfriend Samuel (Jean-Luc Bilodeau). But her friends convince her to go on Rumspringa in Hollywood where she wears jeans and makeup for the first time and begins to think for herself, making her own decisions. She meets Josh (McCartney), a DJ, and the two click instantly becoming inseparable. On their last night together, Hannah confides that she doesn’t want to be baptized and wants to stay in LA – but she has to go home to tell her family. When she returns to Amish country, Hannah learns she is pregnant and must make the painful choice of staying with Samuel and raising the baby as his, or return to Josh and risk being shunned forever.
“Expecting Amish” also stars Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Alyson Stoner and Brian Krause. The film will premiere on Lifetime on July 19 at 8pm EST.
