The holidays are still months away, but Hallmark Channel is already in the Christmas spirit.
When Calls the Heart stars Erin Krakowand Kevin McGarry, as well as Lost alum Elizabeth Mitchell, are toplining their own Christmas movies for Hallmark Channel this holiday season, ET has exclusively learned.
Lost alum Elizabeth Mitchell makes her Hallmark Channel debut this year and will lead her first holiday film, starring opposite former ET correspondent Cameron Mathison.
In The Christmas Club, based on the novel by Barbara Hinske, two busy strangers, Olivia Bennett (Mitchell) and Edward Taylor (Mathison), meet when they help an elderly woman find her lost Christmas savings. Thanks to fate and Christmas magic, they also find something they were both missing: true love.
Mitchell’s Olivia is filled with Christmas spirit, whether she’s with her dance students or her spirited 8-year-old daughter, Maeryn, and especially when she and Maeryn are dancing together. As a single mom and dance instructor, Olivia has no time for love and little interest to settle down. Things get even more stressful when Olivia learns the owner of the dance studio is selling it right before the annual Christmas recital.
All three movies begin production on Monday.
Earlier this year, Hallmark banked its first Christmas film, The Christmas Song, starring Kristin Chenoweth and Scott Wolf, and has lined up a slew of other originals for the holiday season, starring cast Legacies’ Matthew Davis, Jodie Sweetin, Chad Michael Murray, Torrey DeVitto and Nikki DeLoach. While 2018 saw a record-breaking 38 Christmas movies, Hallmark will top that with 40 this year.
