An aspiring artist must choose between her career and the love she walked away from once before, in “Christmas Wonderland” premiering Saturday, December 1 (9 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. The new, original movie stars Emily Osment (Family Guy, Mom), Ryan Rottman (The Lying Game) and Kelly Hu (Archer, Arrow) airs as part of the network’s highly anticipated programming event ‘Miracles Of Christmas’.
About The Movie:
Heidi Nelson (Osment), moved to New York from Pleasant Valley to become an artist, and put that dream on hold when she got a job in a gallery. Now, a week before the gallery’s big Christmas party, she must return home to watch her niece and nephew. There, she comes face to face with her high school love, Chris Shepherd (Rottman), now a teacher, who must find a new last-minute location for the Christmas dance.
Heidi offers to help him and, with Christmas fast approaching, becomes torn between the life she built in the city and the life she has rediscovered back in Pleasant Valley. “Christmas Wonderland” is a HYBRID production. Sean Olson directed from a script written by Anna White.
