Vanessa Lengies (“True Lies,” “Turner & Hooch”) and Corey Sevier (“Key to Love,” “A Dog Lover’s Guide to Dating”) star in “Take Me Back For Christmas” a new, movie premiering Saturday, July 15 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual Christmas in July programming event.
About The Movie:
Renée (Lengies) always dreamed of starting her own business but when her mom got sick, she and her husband Aaron (Sevier) moved back to the suburbs to care for her and were forced to put their dreams on hold. Now 10 years later, she is officially stuck in a rut with mounting bills and a dead-end job putting pressure on her normally happy marriage. After a particularly disheartening day working at a local gift shop, an elf running the Santa display offers to grant Renée a Christmas wish. Although skeptical, her exasperation gets the best of her, and she wishes for a different life…only to wake up in a New York City high rise as CEO of one of the most successful meal kit delivery companies in the world. To top it all off, her mom is still alive. It looks like her wish came true and her new reality is seemingly perfect, except for one thing – she is no longer married to Aaron. In a desperate attempt to win him back, Renée hires Aaron, now a successful chef, to develop a Christmas dinner meal kit benefiting local food banks. With her new plan in place, she and Aaron begin to fall in love all over again, bringing her one step closer to “having it all.” But as complications arise in this new reality and the clock ticks closer to Christmas Eve, Renée is forced to ask herself if going back is the key to moving forward in life and love.
“Take Me Back For Christmas” is from Vortex Media. Justin Rebelo, Bill Marks and Christopher Giroux are executive producers. Corey Sevier directed from a script by Kate Pragnell.
