GMC TV is debuting original movie, The Carpenter's Miracle Easter weekend, on Saturday March 30 and Sunday, March 31 at 7, 9 and 11 p.m. EST.

Capitalizing on History Channel's The Bible miniseries, The Carpenter's Miracle is based on Judd Parkin's screen adaptation of his own novel. Directed by K.T. Donaldson, The Carpenter's Miracle focuses centers around local handyman Josh Carey, played by Cameron Mathison. Carey's becomes famous for attempting to save 12-year old Luke Quinn from drowning. The boy who appears to have died from the accident is suddenly revived after Josh gently touches the boys head in his hospital room.

Initially opposed to the media attention, Josh is forced to make a tough decision. A tabloid reporter comes to town to expose the story to the nation and offers Josh money for details. When Josh find out his mom needs expensive surgery, he's forced to decide what matters more: his privacy or his mother's health.

Mathison on playing the small town hero:

"I was drawn to its script and I loved the humility and selflessness of this character, which is very rare in a leading man. I was really excited about that aspect and the director helped me work on that as an actor. It's a story about a guy who seemingly saves a boy's life and in doing so he transforms and saves his own. It's a beautiful story about a miracle and what comes after that. He goes from a guy with very little faith to having faith."

The Emmy-nominated Mathison starred opposite Michelle Harrison, Sarah-Jane Redmond (Smallville) and Ryan Grantham (Diary of a Wimpy Kid).

There was a spiritual vibe between us and that helped with the chemistry and the connection between us," Cameron said.

Tune in Easter weekend for GMC TV original movie The Carpenter's Miracle.
