Premieres Saturday, December 22 at 8 PM ET/PT on Hallmark Channel
Brooke Nevin (“Chicago Hope,” “The Christmas Cure”), Michael Cassidy (“The OC”) star in “Jingle Around the Clock,” a new, original movie on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s programming event, Countdown to Christmas. Elle Bennett (Nevin) is an ambitious ad agency executive in Chicago who is looking forward to putting together her annual “Misfit Christmas” party with her close friends – a holiday tradition since their college days which is clearly important to her.
However, difficulties at work put a kink in her plans, drawing her back to the office, where she discovers the company is bringing in another executive, Max Turner (Cassidy) from the New York office to solve the problem. Concerned this new guy who she knows only from emails might put a damper on her plans for a promotion, Elle re-doubles her efforts at work, putting her Christmas party plans at risk. Despite her best effort to take control of the work situation, Elle’s boss asks her to work with Max and when they finally meet, she realizes he’s also the attractive stranger who started showing up at her local coffee house a few days ago.
