Lisa Kleypas has finally made the announcement, which means I am free to reveal the news I’ve been sitting on for months. Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor will be an ABC and a Hallmark channel movie this year called Christmas with Holly. Better still, unlike some other past “movie deals,” we know it’s the real thing because the movie is already shooting up in Canada for airing this holiday season.
Here’s the Hallmark press release:
Filming begins this week in and around Halifax, Nova Scotia on the newest Hallmark Hall of Fame production, Christmas with Holly. It will premiere on ABC in December, 2012, with encore presentations on the Hallmark Channel.
“I’ve been holding on to my old dreams. But I realize I need to make room for new ones.” So says Maggie Conway, played by Eloise Mumford (The River, Lone Star), in the film. She’s decided to move on in life after being left at the altar months earlier.
