Charlie & Me is a made-for-tv movie that premiered on Hallmark Channel on January 5, 2008. Filmed on location in Ontario, Canada, the movie stars Tom Bosley as the title character and Jordy Benattar as his granddaughter.



Casey Baker (Jordy Benattar) is a 12-year-old girl whose best friend is her grandfather, Charlie (Tom Bosley). Charlie has been like her surrogate parent since she was 4 years old, when Casey's mother was born. When she was seven she fell down and hurt her leg. She started to cry. Her parents rushed her to the hospital. She passed away after 2 weeks in the hospital. Her still-grieving father, Jeffrey (James Gallanders), has kept his distance. When Jeffrey is away on a business trip, Charlie has a heart attack, and Casey finds herself alone making some critical decisions for her grandfather.


Web exclusives

To drive viewers to their website, Hallmark Channel had a special prologue filmed that shows Casey as a grownup. The site also contains clips of a "video diary", where Casey (to camera) discusses such topics as public speaking, her pet iguana Louis, her dad, her mom, her crush at school, and her grandfather Charlie.[1]
