Fulfilling a little girl’s Christmas wish list makes former childhood friends see each other in a whole new light, when Ashley Williams (“The Jim Gaffigan Show,” “How I Met Your Mother”) and Paul Campbell (“The Last Bridesmaid,” “Battlestar Galactica”) star in “Holiday Hearts” a new original premiering Saturday, November 23 (9 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as part of the network’s annual “Miracles of Christmas” programming event.
About The Movie:
During the week leading up to Christmas, Peyton Canaday (Williams), who is charged with planning the big annual Christmas Eve party at her family’s inn, is unexpectedly drafted to assist her former crush, Dr. Ben Tyler (Campbell) in helping a mutual friend’s daughter carry out her late mother’s wish. Together, they must create a magical Christmas inspired by the girl’s beautiful memories. In order to make this work, however, Peyton must put aside the hurt she experienced from Ben’s rejection 10 years prior. “
Holiday Hearts” is produced by 4 Ever Wish Productions Inc. Suzanne Arnott, Michael Shepard, Ivan Hayden, Harry Winer and Kim Arnott, are executive producers. Allan Harmon directed from a script by Susan Brightbill, based on the novel The Christmas Wish by Barbara Ankrum.
