Natalie Hall (“True Blood,” “Fly Away with Me”) and Corey Sevier (“Road Trip Romance,” “Heart of the Holidays”) go from foes to friends in “Noel Next Door” a new, original movie premiering Friday, October 21 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual “Countdown to Christmas” programming event.
About The Movie:
When single-mom Noelle (Hall) learns that her son, Henry, (Callum Shoniker, “Toying with the Holidays”), has been scolded by a grumpy neighbor, she jumps to her son’s defense. The only issue is that mean Mr. Geir (Sevier) of unit 224 is actually Jeremy, the misunderstood “scrooge” of the neighborhood. When Noelle unknowingly serves her handsome neighbor at the diner where she works, there is an immediate spark between them. Still, Jeremy doubts her attraction. How could a woman as beautiful as Noelle find him attractive? When the neighbors next run into each other at the pharmacy their chemistry is palpable, but Jeremy can’t summon the courage to ask her out, certain she will make an excuse. Noelle leaves feeling uncertain and saddened by their last interaction. All opportunity seems lost until Noelle once again runs into Jeremy, but this time he is playing soccer with her son Henry and they both realize the chemistry they’ve been avoiding deserves their full attention, bringing them together for the holidays.
