Amy Acker (“The Gifted,” “Angel”) and Warren Christie (“The Village,” “If I Only Had Christmas”) star in “Crashing Through the Snow” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, July 10 (9 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual “Christmas in July” programming event.
About The Movie:
Maggie (Acker) and her ex-husband, Jeff (Kristian Bruun, “Orphan Black”), have always been friends first. When Jeff’s new girlfriend, Kate (Brooke Nevin, “Jingle Around the Clock”), spontaneously invites Maggie along on their Christmas getaway in Aspen, she jumps at the chance to spend the holiday away with her two daughters. Maggie feels like a third wheel crashing their Christmas but she’s not alone for long as Kate’s hapless brother, Sam (Christie), shows up unannounced with a plan. Always seeming to live in Kate’s shadow, Sam wants to put an end to that trend. He convinces Maggie that together, they can help give her daughters their best Christmas ever. But neither of them is adequately prepared for the blended family challenges that lie ahead – or the feelings they develop for one another.
