UPtv recently released their list of new movies for the 2017 holiday season as part of their “We Get Christmas” campaign.
Premiering on Sunday November 19 at 7PM ET is “The Christmas Calendar” Starring Laura Bell Bundy and Brendon Zub.
About The Movie:
When Emily, a struggling baker in a small town, receives a handmade Christmas calendar from a secret admirer, the local residents become obsessed with finding out the identity of the sender.
We had the chance to catch up with star Laura Bell Bundy about family holiday traditions and her favorite holiday treat.
Kat: Was there anything about your role that was particularly challenging?
LB: Not really.
Kat: What was your favorite scene to shoot and why? (without giving away spoilers)
LB: I enjoyed the bowling scene the most I think! We were all actually bowling for real and having a blast.
Kat: What’s your favorite Christmas song?
LB: Frank Sinatra’s “Jingle Bells”
Kat: Do you or your family have any special holiday traditions?
LB: Yes! We do presents on Christmas eve, white elephant gift exchange which is always hilarious, drink KY bourbon, eat KY beer cheese and play games.
Kat: What is your favorite holiday treat? Or is there something you love to make/bake for the holidays?
LB: I love peppermint bark! I will get extra so it lasts me a few months after the holidays!! Having celiac disease, I am the person that will make the gluten free goodies and eat them all by myself.
“Christmas Calendar” premieres on Sunday, November 19 at 7PM ET.
