Enchanted Christmas – Sunday, November 19
- When she left Utah as a young widow, Laura left behind her father, her love of dance, and an old heartbreak to start over as a single mother in Los Angeles. Now, she must return home to spearhead the renovation of an old hotel, which must be restored in time for the 75th annual Christmas Eve benefit show – the very one in which she performed when she was younger. But Laura is shocked to learn that her old love, Ricardo, the boy who jilted her for a professional dance career, has returned to Utah to choreograph and star in the show. And when his dance partner Taylor leaves suddenly for an out-of-town audition, Laura must step in for her, reawakening her love of the dance, not to mention her old feelings for Ricardo – a potent combination that has her head spinning. Now, Laura must try to reconnect to her past, her family, and her love of Christmas to find a way to capture the magic of the season. Stars Alexa and Carlos Penavega
Christmas in Evergreen – Saturday, December 2
- Veterinarian Allie is preparing to move from her small hometown of Evergreen, Vermont to Washington DC for a new job and a possible reconciliation with her former boyfriend. Single dad Ryan and his young daughter Zoe are on their way to Florida, where he hopes a low-key Christmas will help them heal from the loss of his wife. When Allie and Zoe each make a wish on a “magical” snow globe for a truly “Merry Christmas,” the fates conspire to put Allie and Ryan together as a snowstorm keeps them from leaving Evergreen. As they spend more time together enjoying the yuletide spirit that the town has to offer, they start to wonder if maybe this is where they were meant to be all along. Stars Ashley Williams (The Jim Gaffigan Show; How I Met Your Mother) and Teddy Sears (Masters of Sex; The Flash)
