You know at the end of It's a Wonderful Life when George is ecstatically running through town wishing everything a Merry Christmas? That's pretty much how I feel when the list of new Hallmark holiday movies comes out. Raging joy is another way I would describe it. And we have a lot to look forward to this year. You did hear me right when you read Chad Michael Murray is starring in one sure to be a classic this year. I will admit I totally watched One Tree Hill... well until that evil nanny season at least, and he is PERFECT for this genre. It isn't happening this year but what if they actually pair him with Alicia Witt. Their facial expressions would work wonders together. Anyway, I digress... there are 34 new movies coming out this year. That is so many. I mean seriously, that is a lot of movies. They start next month, October 27 to be exact. That means we are just over a month away and then it's nonstop holiday bonanza before Halloween even hits.
We see many of the names we have grown to love for the network: Candace Cameron Bure, Alicia Witt, Danica McKeller and Lacey Chabert. And we have some exciting new arrivals: Kelly Pickler, LeAnn Rimes, Christina Milian and the aforementioned CMM of course. To plan the rest of your year, you can see the entire schedule mapped out here. And it was nice to see EW in the mix - they did a great snapshot of all the flicks, including synopses that you can read here.
I am still trying to figure out what I am most excited about... so stay tuned. I also think we need a drinking game. I will work on it. Until then, I will be rereading what's to come. Happy almost Hallmark season everyone.
