Chelsea Kane (“Baby Daddy”) and Drew Seeley (“He Knows Your Every Move”) star in “A Christmas for the Books” a new, original movie premiering Thursday, December 20 (9 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as part of the network’s annual “Miracles of Christmas” programming event.
About The Movie:
Author and self-help guru Joanna Moret (Kane) wrote the playbook on love – literally! So, when Joanna is presented with an opportunity for her own TV show, she fears that the recent breakup with her boyfriend will ruin her image as a relationship expert and turns to Ted (Seeley) for help. Ted poses as Joanna’s boyfriend for the holidays as she plans her future boss’s Christmas gala, and in exchange Joanna agrees to help Ted win back his ex-girlfriend. Despite their many differences, Joanna and Ted form a connection. Even when Joanna meets Del (Chad Connell, “Mary Kills People”) – who is a better fit for her according to her own book – and when Ted’s ex-girlfriend considers giving him another chance, Joanna and Ted begin to wonder if they may be imperfectly perfect for one another. As Christmas approaches, Joanna must decide if she should follow her own playbook on the path to love or set it aside to pursue a new relationship.
