In the TV movie Unleashing Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth Scott (Cindy Busby) enters her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in a prestigious dog show in New York City. There she meets an arrogant and attractive judge named Mr. Donovan Darcy (Ryan Paevey). Just as in Teri Wilson’s 2013 novel of the same title -- a modern retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice -- Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy clash at first...and then fall in love.
