Jill Wagner to star in upcoming Hallmark Christmas Movie - "Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses"



ET has exclusively revealed: Jill Wagner (Mystery 101) and Matthew Davis (Legally Blonde) will star in Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses, which is slated to premiere during Hallmark's premiere programming event, Countdown to Christmas, this holiday season.

Storyline shared by ET: "In the movie, single mom Abbey (Wagner) takes a leap of faith to pursue her passion for interior design. When she gets hired to decorate the estate of local businessman Nick (Davis), Abbey must complete the job by Christmas Eve. With the holidays fast approaching, Abbey must figure out how to break down the wall between her and Nick, as this could be the opportunity that jump-starts her career."

This will be Matthew Davis first Hallmark movie. Jill Wagner, in contrast, has previously starred in three Hallmark Christmas movies: Christmas Cookies, Maggie's Christmas Miracle and Christmas in Evergreen: Letters to Santa.

My Quick Take:

I think this sounds like another delightful Hallmark Christmas movie for Jill Wagner, who has been one of viewers favorites since her first film for the network, Autumn Dreams.

This movie is also based on the book by Jenny Hale, by the same name - Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses. I haven't personally read this one, but the synopsis sounds cute and reviews on Amazon say it is a clean Christmas romance... a touching, heartwarming story.

I'm so glad we have this movie to anticipate seeing - during Hallmark Channel's upcoming Countdown to Christmas 10th Anniversary!

    1. Oh, that is so fun, Jill... that you just happened to pick up this book! That should be interesting to compare the two - when we see the movie this Christmas season!

      Jill Wagner is also one of my favorites, Jill (how cool you have the same name!); plus, I'm with you - it's fun to see a new actor will play her co-star! :)

    1. Yes, I can definitely see some similarities here with the synopsis we were given. I also thought it sounded, a bit, like "A December Bride," with the decorating storyline. Or perhaps, "Christmas at Pemberley Manor."

  5. Hey Net
    I am a fervent fan of the Hallmark channel especially the Christmas countdown
    I am so thrilled about the 10 year anniversary showing a Christmas movie every Thursfay and Friday !! However, is there any way they can show the really old classic Christmas movies like A Season for Mirackes and Silber Bells or the Christmad visitor ? I miss these movies so much!!

    1. Hello Lourdes! It's always wonderful to hear from another enthusiastic Hallmark movie fan! It is such a gift for all of us who love Christmas to see the movies every week!

      As for the classics you mentioned - I love those, too, but they have moved those to their streaming service - Hallmark Movies Now. I know just what you mean, about missing seeing them on TV. I feel exactly the same, but thankfully... I have them on DVD to watch whenever I like!

    1. Oh, that is so cool, Valerie! Thank you so much for sharing that! I love that they are filming more and more of these movies in the U.S.!

      How awesome that you were able to catch Jill and Matthew! Wow! I also heard Donna Mills ("12 Gifts of Christmas") is co-starring in this, too! This is one I'm already really looking forward to seeing, as well.

      Please keep us posted - if you happen to catch anything else! Would love to hear! This is such a fun time when they are filming the Christmas movies! :)
