GAC wants to be your holiday headquarters for Christmas break! Today the network announced that Jill Wagner and Nick Bateman would star in an original Christmas movie for the newly rebranded channel formerly called Great American Country Network.
GAC Family today announced Jill Wagner (Christmas in Evergreen) and Nick Bateman (Gambit: Playing for Keeps) are starring in a GAC Family original movie tentatively titled, A Christmas Miracle for Daisy.
Mark your calendars for this holiday movie premiere set for December 11 at 8 pm ET/PT as part of GAC Family’s “Great American Christmas” franchise.
About the Christmas Miracle film
Montana is the perfect snowy setting for this unlikely romantic film. Christmas movies set in Miami don’t feel right, do they?
From feel-good film super-producer, Brad Krevoy and company comes A Christmas Miracle for Daisy, where Whitney Alder (Wagner) owns an interior design firm, Marietta Designs.
It’s a joint effort with her friend and business partner, Andi (Tegan Moss), located in Marietta, Montana.
The task is designing a parade float, Santa themed, of course, for the annual Marietta Christmas Parade when a potential job opportunity comes her way: the full redesign of a landmark home by Christmas Eve.
A daunting challenge considering the time of year, but Whitney and Andi accept the job – only to discover the home’s new owner is Whitney’s ex-boyfriend, Connor Sheenan (Bateman), who left Los Angeles with his sweet young adopted daughter, Daisy (Rubi Tupper).
The twist is that Connor had no intention of being a dad, but when his goddaughter was orphaned, he adopted her and is committed to becoming a devoted father.
But Daisy needs a mother too, enter the chemistry, history, and natural attraction that exists still between Whit and Connor. You get the jingle bells, reindeer games and fa-la-la-la-las the writers have in store for us all as these two fall back into each other’s orbit.
Daisy believes that Christmas is a time for miracles. Whitney and Connor better not disappoint her!
Fun fact for you Christmas movie nerds out there, Jill’s daughter’s name is Daisy, so Country Music Alley hears from reliable sources that this movie is special for her.
