Unleashing Mr. Darcy is the interesting title of the new movie premiering in the New Year on Hallmark channel on January 23rd, 2016. It got me curious and I immediately went into google search mode to find more info. about the movie. The new Hallmark movie was adapted from Teri Wilson's novel of the same title, which was released in 2013 and a modern re-telling of Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice. Hallmark has started a page on their website for the movie with the following synopsis:
Fishing for direction in life, Elizabeth gets the opportunity of showing her dog in a fancy New York dog show. The judge, Donovan Darcy, comes across as aristocratic and rude, and a chain of misunderstandings unfold during the competition, complicating their attraction to one another. Based on characters by Jane Austen.Watch a WinterFest 2016 teaser promo video featuring Unleashing Mr. Darcy's Elizabeth & Darcy (see a few screen caps included) below...

As for the book, Unleashing Mr. Darcy, you can read an excerpt here on Teri Wilson's website.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman teetering on the verge of thirty must be in want of a husband.
Not true for Manhattanite Elizabeth Scott. Instead of planning a walk down the aisle, she's crossing the pond with the only companion she needs—her darling dog, Bliss. Caring for a pack of show dogs in England seems the perfect distraction from the scandal that ruined her teaching career, and her reputation, in New York. What she doesn't count on is an unstoppable attraction to billionaire dog breeder Donovan Darcy. The London tycoon's a little bit arrogant, a whole lot sexy…and the chemistry between them is disarming. When passion is finally unleashed, might Elizabeth hope to take home more than a blue ribbon?
