Katee Sackhoff (“The Mandalorian,” “Battlestar Galactica”) and Patrick Sabongui (“Firefly Lane,” “The Flash”) star in “Christmas Sail” a new, original movie premiering Sunday, October 31 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel, as part of the network’s “Countdown to Christmas” programming event – your home for the holiday. Terry O’Quinn (“Patriot,” “Lost”) also stars.
About The Movie:
When single mom Liz Darling (Sackhoff) finds out her estranged father, Dennis (O’Quinn) has been injured in a minor accident, she returns to her hometown of Portside for the first Christmas in years. Not much has changed except for Luke (Sabongui), her childhood best friend, who’s definitely not the same boy she remembers. While this might not have been the holiday she’d imagined, Liz sees this as an opportunity to show her daughter Hannah (Emma Oliver, “Snowpiercer”) the kind of magical Christmas she’d once shared with her own mother. One of their favorite traditions was participating in the town’s annual Christmas Eve Sailboat Parade of Lights but after her mother passed away, the family boat was docked for good along with her father’s Christmas spirit. When Liz discovers he may lose their family home, she comes up with a plan: enlist Luke’s help to fix up the boat and create a floating light display spectacular enough to win the parade’s $25,000 grand prize. Unbeknownst to her, Luke has a plan of his own that may finally win her heart.
