When a massive, out-of-season storm system sneaks up on Texas at Christmas, weather scientist Ethan Walker (Van Dien) is hard-pressed to convince skeptics, including his meteorologist wife, Addison (Pratt), and her coworker, Logan (Burgi), of the fast-approaching danger.
Stars Casper Van Dien, Victoria Pratt, Richard Burgi
After being fired from her high-powered job, Rebecca (Sokoloff) heads back home to see her mom, Shirley (Hicks), and attend her friends’ small-town wedding on Christmas Eve. Initially convinced that the trip is a terrible mistake, especially her botched romantic conversation with former beau, Chad (Carmack), Rebecca soon learns that, indeed, you can go home again, and, again — until you get it right.
Stars Marla Sokoloff, Chris Carmack, Catherine Hicks, David DeLuise, George Wendt
Anything But Christmas
John loves Grace and her 10-year-old son, Zachary. Although he wants to propose to her at Christmas, it’s the one holiday John runs from. In this romantic comedy, chaos with exes, misunderstandings, parents and in-laws all imperil John and Grace’s relationship. But can they get it sorted out in time for the holidays?
Cast To Be Announced
Golden Christmas 3
Heather is a charming, free spirit and Bobby is a naval officer home from serving overseas. Thanks to three golden retrievers, Bobby’s spirited 11-year-old niece, Myra, and a fun-filled theatre production of “A Christmas Carol,” these two unlucky and unlikely people end up falling in love at Christmas.
Stars Shantel VanSanten, Rob Mayes, Orson Bean, Mark Famiglietti, Nikki DeLoach, Alex Peters, Maxim Knight, Peter Holden, Matt Corboy
A Star for Christmas
The only thing that is working in Cassie’s world is her small town business. Her Christmas Cupcakery is a huge success, but her love life is a mess. Cassie’s whole universe is turned upside down when she falls in love with a co-worker who is revealed to be the famous and notoriously troubled actor Alex Gray. There’s no denying that Alex and Cassie are in love, but can their relationship survive the pressure of Hollywood and the holidays?
