Jessy Schram (“Nashville,” “The Birthday Wish”), and Chad Michael Murray (“Dawson’s Creek,” “Gilmore Girls,” “One Tree Hill”) star in “Road to Christmas” a new, original movie premiering Sunday, November 4, (8 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s #1-rated program event, Countdown To Christmas.
About The Movie:
When higher ratings become a necessity Maggie Baker (Schram), a Los Angeles-based
television producer for “Julia Wise Lifestyle,” is forced to work on the show’s upcoming Christmas Eve special with Danny Wise (Murray), the show’s former producer and also the son of the star.
Disguising a secret idea to reunite Julia with her three grown sons during the live show to be filmed at Julia’s quaint farm home in Vermont, Maggie and Danny set out on a “Cross Country Christmas” trek to film fun traditions for the special. Sparks begin to ignite as they work their way across the country to reunite the brothers when Maggie’s plan goes awry and her scheme becomes clear. As the broadcast is about to start, they lose power and Julia is forced to go live without the use of the teleprompter. But that’s not the only unscripted moment in the show and Julia is soon given the surprise of a lifetime, leaving her speechless. It’s during that heartfelt and magical moment when Maggie is reminded that the love you have for your family and friends makes the merriest Christmas.
“Road to Christmas” is a Spring Productions, Ltd., production. Vicki Sotheran and Greg Malcolm are the producers. Allan Harmon directed from a script written by Zachary Hug.
