Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas
Sunday, Dec. 4, 8/7c, the movie Looks Like Christmas premieres on the Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas. The one thing single parents: “Christmas Carol” and “Terry Christmas” have in common is they both love Christmas. With different ‘how to plan’ styles, the two spar over who will be the most-involved parent at the children’s Christmas Spectacular. Carol and Terry eventually put their differences aside and an unexpected romance begins to bloom. The movie stars Anne Heche and Dylan Neal.
