‘BROADCASTING CHRISTMAS’ – Wednesday, November 23 (8 p.m. ET/PT)

Stars: Dean Cain ("Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman"), Melissa Joan Hart ("Melissa & Joey," "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch")

Meredith Martin (Hart) is an ambitious television anchor, aimed at climbing the ranks. When the prized position presents itself shortly before Christmas, Meredith is ready to leap. To her surprise, she discovers she has stiff competition with Nolan Barnes (Cain), the local TV anchor who is her near equal on another station. With such interest and support for both reporters, a contest is drawn up:  for the two weeks leading up to Christmas, who can cover the best and most meaningful Christmas stories on the local news? Meredith and Nolan go toe to toe. The surprising turn of events is that Nolan and Meredith start to realize top prize is not really as important as they thought. The true meaning of Christmas and the heartfelt experiences that stand out in the stories they’re covering challenge their career ambitions. This awakening also brings them into a connection they never saw coming as they start to fall in love.

‘CHRISTMAS IN HOMESTEAD’ – Thursday, November 24 (8 p.m. ET/PT)

Stars: Taylor Cole ("My Summer Prince," "The Originals"), Michael Rady

One of the most famous actresses in world (Cole) heads to the Christmas-obsessed town of Homestead, Iowa to shoot a holiday-themed. She is thrown for a loop when a romance brews between her and local inn keeper and single dad, Matt (Rady). As she gets a taste of small-town life and people who give of themselves without asking anything in return, she discovers the true meaning of Christmas.

‘CHRISTMAS LIST’ – Friday, November 25 (8 p.m. ET/PT)

Stars: Alicia Witt ("Nashville," "Justified"), Gabriel Hogan ("Heartland")

Isobel Gray (Witt) plans a storybook Christmas with her boyfriend (Hogan), including a snow-covered cottage in the Northwest, and a carefully composed bucket list of classic holiday traditions. But when the boyfriend goes AWOL, the list proves challenging and a tempting new romance turns her life upside down. Will Isobel have a White Christmas ending under the mistletoe?

‘A HEAVENLY CHRISTMAS’ – Saturday, November 26, (8 p.m. ET/PT)

Stars: Kristin Davis ("Sex & the City"), Eric McCormack ("Will & Grace," "Perception"), Shirley MacLaine ("Terms of Endearment")

Upon her untimely death, Eve Morgan (Davis), a workaholic finds herself tethered to her guardian angel (MacLaine) learning to become a Christmas angel in Heaven. Despite being the worst recruit in the history of Christmas, Eve is assigned the difficult task of helping a struggling singer Max (McCormack) use his musical gifts to heal old family wounds. As Max begins to overcome his issues, Eve begins to embrace the meaning of Christmas, heal wounds of her own and perhaps find love along the way.

‘JOURNEY BACK TO CHRISTMAS’ – Sunday, November 27 (8 p.m. ET/PT)

Stars: Candace Cameron Bure ("Fuller House," "Aurora Teagarden Mysteries"), Oliver Hudson ("Rules of Engagement," "Nashville"), Tom Skerritt ("Picket Fences," "Steel Magnolias")

  1. I love this new Thanksgiving/Christmas tradition! And I love that Candice is hosting it again. As Hallmark used to say, "What would Christmas be like without Hallmark and Candice Cameron Bure?!" I'm looking forward to seeing the previews for these 5 movies!

  5. I don't know if it's a problem with the press release or just a simple typo, but the note in the text body says that "Broadcasting Christmas" will premiere on Friday, November 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT" and then in the individual movie listings, it states that Broadcasting Christmas will debut on November 23 and that Christmas List will premiere on the 25th. Not sure which is correct at this point.

    1. Hallmark reissued some corrections to this press release. The first date should read November 23rd. I have corrected it above for them. Thank you for pointing that out SKP!

  6. Finally a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie!

  7. I don't mean to be rude, but I really don't understand why are they doing this, Candace Cameron should host her own movie and no other, each leading lady should host her own movie, this is just not fair!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I wish they'd show some actual Thanksgiving movies Thanksgiving week

  9. It's probably easier just to have one person to do it in one sitting than get each lead to do it. I think they like the leads being interactive on social media while the movie is playing.
