Amanda Schull (“Suits”) and Travis Van Winkle (“Hart of Dixie”) star in “Project Christmas Wish” a new original premiering Sunday, December 20 (10 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, during the network’s annual “Miracles of Christmas” programming event – your home for the holiday.
About The Movie:
For years, Lucy (Schull) has played Santa to her small town’s community by making their holiday wishes come true. Spearheading her Christmas Crew of one, Lucy takes to the radio waves each Christmas in search of her Wish of the Season. Since losing his wife, Christmas has been a time of grief for Lucas (Van Winkle) and filled with memories of what used to be for his daughter, Max. Lucy’s storybook Christmas persona leaves Lucas wary of small-town life but gives Max the platform she’s been waiting for: a direct line to Santa. Publicly wishing for “Christmas, like it used to be,” Max becomes the town’s Wish of the Season. But when Lucy sets out to grant Max’s wish, she unexpectedly finds her own wishes coming true in life…and love.
“Project Christmas Wish” is produced by Inferno Pictures. Ryan M. Murphy serves as the executive producer. Ian Dimerman serves as producer. Jeff Beesley directed from a script by Anne Abramowitz Junget and Joie Botkin.
