In the Lifetime TV movie Jim Henson’s Turkey Hollow, divorced dad Ron Emmerson takes his two kids, Tim (Graham Verchere) and Annie (Genevieve Buechner), to visit his eccentric Aunt Cly’s (Mary Steenburgen) for Thanksgiving. She lives in the town of Turkey Hollow where, folklore has it, an elusive monster named the Howling Hoodoo lives. While the kids try to hunt down the monster in the woods, poor Aunt Cly is accused of and framed for stealing a turkey by her scheming neighbors.
Ron is portrayed by Jay Harrington. He’s best known for his roles on Hot in Cleveland (Alec), Better Off Ted (Ted Crisp), Private Practice (Dr. Wyatt Lockhart), Desperate Housewives (Dr. Ron McCready), and Summerland (Dr. Simon O’Keefe).
