Preview: The Jensen Project

posted by Nell Minow

The people behind the sensationally popular “Secrets of the Mountain” have a new family movie called “The Jensen Project,” starring Kellie Martin and premiering July 16 on NBC. It’s the story of a couple who once worked at a secret retreat for top scientists who must return when one of their former colleagues goes rogue. As they work to keep the world safe they reconnect to each other and their son.

    Me, too, Theresa! She has a lovely sincerity that just shines and she is marvelous in this film. Let me know what you think after you see it!

    No offense, but Kellie looks older than her years in this program. I understand that they’re probably attempting to age her for the role to be a mother of a 20 year old, but she’s 4 years younger than me, and you can’t fake the lines around her mouth, the sagging at her jawline and the lines in her forehead. I couldn’t believe how poorly she’s aging. Sorry Kellie! I really appreciate your talents, but you’re not going to help your long-term career with this look. Drop Dead Divas, where they’re using great lighting and make-up, is a better route.

    Thanks, 38. I was not distracted by her looks, which felt right to me for the mother of a teen-ager. But we are all so familiar with her face when she was a teenager that it can seem jarring to see her grown up.
