Alison Sweeney (“Days of Our Lives”), Luke Macfarlane, (Bros) and special guest star Marlo Thomas light up “A Magical Christmas Village” a new, original movie premiering Friday, November 4 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual beloved “Countdown to Christmas” programming event – your home for the holiday.
About The Movie:
Summer (Sweeney) is an architect living in a small town where she’s raising her young daughter Chloe (Maesa Nicholson, “Dying for Chocolate: A Curious Caterer Mystery”). When her mother Vivian (Thomas) finds herself in need of a place to live, her orderly life becomes a little less so after inviting Vivian to move in with them during this transition. Upon arrival, Vivian sets up an heirloom, miniature Christmas village resembling their town, and tells Chloe it grants Christmas wishes. As Chloe begins setting up the figurines, real-life events seem to mimic the scenes she creates, including Summer’s chance meeting with Ryan (Macfarlane), a newcomer to their community. The two quickly learn they share much in common and as they spend more time together, Ryan slowly helps Summer learn to open her hear to love again. Meanwhile, living under the same roof gives Summer and Vivian the chance to mend fences as the holiday nears and, perhaps with a little help from the magic of the Christmas village, the family will be brought closer together.
“A Magical Christmas Village” is from Lighthouse Pictures Inc. The executive producers are Sweeney, Craig Baumgarten, Shawn Williamson, Jamie Goehring and Melissa Salmons. Kevin Leslie serves as producer. Jason Furukawa directed from a script by Salmons.
