Kathie Lee Gifford to star in feature film, 'Love Me To Death'
Kathie Lee Gifford is starring alongside Craig Ferguson in Love Me To Death that will be filmed on June in Scotland.
On May 3, 2018, the 64-year-old Today show host made an announcement that she is working on a new feature film, Love Me To Death, as reported by Faith Family America.
Gifford took to her Twitter account to share the exciting news. “I am beyond thrilled to announce the project I’m about to film with Craig Ferguson!” she wrote.
Love Me To Death was written by Gifford. It has a storyline near and dear to her heart.
In the upcoming movie, the TV host will be the main character, which is a widow just like herself.
On August 9, 2015, Gifford's husband, Frank Gifford, died from natural causes at their Greenwich, Connecticut home at the age of 84.
“[The movie] follows Annabelle (Gifford), a lonely widow who plans a trip around the world, with her husband’s ashes in tow, to visit the places they loved in the movies. When she arrives at the Inn in Loch Lomond, run by a curmudgeonly Scotsman (Ferguson), the first stop on the journey changes her life forever, as a family secret is revealed, one wedding is derailed, another is planned, and two unlikely people get a second chance at love,” Deadline reported.
