I´m covering a lot of movies from Hallmark come Holiday season, right? Well, here´s another one, just because Hallmark´s bringing a lot of family films for this holidays and Christmas.
Golden Globe nominee Tom Cavanagh (“Ed”) and five-time Emmy® nominee Faith Ford (“Murphy Brown”) discover a change of address in “Debbie Macomber’s Trading Christmas,” a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere on Saturday, November 26 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). The title is the third movie in the network’s ongoing Debbie Macomber film series, which currently has several of the author’s books in varying stages of development. “Debbie Macomber’s Trading Christmas” is based on the author’s novel When Christmas Comes and will be reissued as Trading Christmas in advance of the TV movie this November. Co-starring with Cavanagh and Ford are Gil Bellows (“Ally McBeal”), Gabrielle Miller (“Pasadena”) and Emma Lahana (“Hellcats”). Hallmark Channel’s COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS features more true holiday-themed programming than any other network.
Emily (Ford) misses her daughter Heather (Lahana) who is attending college in Boston. Since her father died, Heather is sensitive to her mom’s dependence on long-standing holiday traditions. This Christmas, Heather has planned a trip to Phoenix with her boyfriend, but tellsher mother she is staying on campus to study. After arranging a house-swap with Charles (Cavanagh), an English professor from Boston who wants Washington State’s solitude in order
to finish his novel, Emily hops on a flight to Boston to surprise Heather for Christmas. Unaware of the house swap, Emily’s best friend, Faith (Miller) walks in on Charles at Emily’s house and in Boston, Ray, Charles’ brother (Bellows) responds to a 911 call only to find Emily at Charles’ condo. Will Christmas travel calamities lead to cross-country romances? Or have there been one too many surprises already?
