Cast in the leading role as Dru Cassadine is Julie Ann Emery (Better Call Saul, Fargo, Major Crimes). Brysen Flynn will be played by Burgess Jenkins (Remember The Titans, Nashville, Army Wives). Cait Pool (Sun Records, Vice Principals) is set to play Brysen’s daughter, Peyton. The movie is slated to feature veteran actors Bonnie Bedelia (Parenthood, Die Hard, The Division) as Ellie Cassadine and Clarence Gilyard Jr. (Walker, Texas Ranger, Matlock, Top Gun) as Fletcher Reese.
“This is a warm, family-friendly, holiday romance with a great cast. Christmas on the Coast offers the viewer a story of hope, escape, and reconciliation. The movie reminds us to take stock of those things in life that are truly important, and to let go of what isn’t," said Wheeler. "Most of this movie was captured on Georgia's beautiful southern coast so we wanted to feature the stunning scenic views for this charming story. The cinematography is amazing and the authentic coastal southern textures beautifully sets the stage. This heartwarming tale is a great complement to our consistently growing library of family-friendly films; and it is sure to resonate with audiences long after the movie has ended."
Christmas on the Coast is produced by INSP Films and will be distributed by Imagicomm Entertainment. The movie is scheduled for release in September 2017.

END OF PRESS RELEASE
Set in the beautiful countryside of Georgia's southern landscape, “Christmas on the Coast” sounds like it will be a wonderful family Christmas film! It is interesting to see in the press release above- it will be released in September! I am wondering if that means for special early showings - around the location where they filmed, etc... and then it will premiere on the television network INSP - sometime during the Christmas season! That's just my hunch!
As for the cast, the lead female role is portrayed by Julie Ann Emery, who also starred as the mother who adopted the young girl in the touching Hallmark Hall of Fame film "Pictures of Hollis Woods!" That is such a wonderful movie, that tugs at every heart string and even ends with a warm Christmas scene! Julie's character was an integral part of what made that movie so special... so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing her in this!
The leading male role in the “Christmas on the Coast” film is portrayed by Burgess Jenkins, who starred as the father in the uplifting, inspiring UP premiere television movie "I Am Potential." This is, yet, another poignant, emotionally moving heartwarming film and Burgess Jenkins' role in it was compelling!
The rest of the “Christmas on the Coast” cast, is also filled with familiar faces from entertainment - so I'm sure you will want to see this All New Family Christmas Movie - “Christmas on the Coast” when it comes later This Year on TV - exclusively on INSP!!!
