Hallmark sets cast for Holiday telefilm

Henry Winkler, Brooke Burns, Warren Christie to star

Henry Winkler, Brooke Burns and Warren Christie have been tapped to star in Hallmark Channel's "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year," a holiday-themed original movie airing in December.

The telefilm, in production in Vancouver, centers on busy single mom Jennifer (Burns), who no longer enjoys the holidays thanks to the overwhelming tasks that go along with them. Then her Uncle Ralph (Winkler) arrives with the young, handsome Morgan (Christie, "October Road"), who causes Jennifer to question her feelings for her stable yet boring boyfriend.

Michael Scott is directing from a script by Bruce Graham.

"Wonderful" is a Hallmark Channel presentation in association with Wonder Road Prods., Dan Wigutow Prods., KZ Prods. and Front Street Pictures. Scott also is exec producing with Dan Wigutow. Harvey Kahn is producing, and Caroline Moore is co-producing.
