Hallmark Channel is excited to share that actress Christina Milian will be starring in an all-new movie for the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries holiday event, “Miracles of Christmas.”
In the tentatively titled “Memories of Christmas,” Milian will play Noelle, who was raised by the queen of Christmas. When she inherits her late mother's house, she finds out that her mother had been hiring someone to decorate it, Dave (Mark Taylor). The deal is off, but Dave convinces Noelle to let him carry on the tradition. As the display goes up, Noelle’s defenses start to come down. She embraces the town’s Christmas Gala that was her mother’s legacy, finds unexpected love, and develops a joy for the holidays that she never thought possible.
In other casting news, Hallmark Channel actor Ryan Paevey will star in “Hope at Christmas” alongside Scottie Thompson in an all-new original movie for Miracles of Christmas. Recently divorced, Sydney (Thompson) decides to spend Christmas in a house she inherited with her daughter. As Sydney begins to spend more time at the local bookstore, she meets a teacher, Mac (Paevey), who also fills in for the town Santa. Mac tries to make Christmas wishes come true, and this year Sydney is at the top of his 'nice' list. As a new opportunity with the bookstore unfolds, Mac helps Sydney open herself up to life, love and believing in the spirit of Christmas again.
Additionally, Jerrika Hinton will star in “A Majestic Christmas” opposite dancer-choreographer Christian Vincent for Hallmark Channel. She will be playing Nell, an architect who goes back to her hometown after being tasked with turning her hometown's historic playhouse, which has been home to the annual Christmas tableaux, into a modern multiplex, much to the resident's objections. When she meets the new owner of the theater, Connor (Vincent), his vision and ideas clash with Nell’s. Since Connor hasn’t had much experience celebrating Christmas, Nell hopes that if she can give him a crash course in Christmas during the town’s Twelve Day Festival, that he might just change his mind about modernizing the Majestic.
Finally, Eloise Mumford returns for her third Hallmark Christmas film, “A Soldier's Christmas,” co-starring with Sean Faris, with whom she appeared in "Christmas With Holly." In this film, Mumford plays Captain Grace Garland, a decorated U.S. veteran who returns home after two tours of Search and Rescue in Afghanistan. When Grace finds herself stranded in the town of River’s Crossing a couple weeks before Christmas, the local judge Joe Peterson (Faris), offers her a place to stay on his property and takes it upon himself to show Grace everything she has been missing; Christmas, family, community and love.

Nikki DeLoach will be featured in her third original holiday movie “Christmas Reunited” with co-star Mike Faiola in the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries event, “Miracles of Christmas.” In the movie DeLoach plays novelist Samantha, who, frazzled and struggling with writer's block, heads home to her late grandmother's home -- alongside her boyfriend -- to spend Christmas there. While at home with family, her grandmother’s wise words reveal the true meaning of Christmas to Samantha at a time when she most needs encouragement.
Jen Lilley stars in "Mingle All the Way" alongside Brant Daugherty and Lindsay Wagner and will be featured in Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas event. In the movie, Lilley plays Molly, founder of Mingle All the Way, a new networking app designed to pair busy professionals together for upcoming events -- without long-term romance. Molly (Lilley) is determined to prove to her family that it is a success. Therefore, she joins the app, and meets another busy professional, Jeff (Daugherty). When Molly and Jeff are matched, they are both horrified to realize they’ve already had not one, but two, disastrous previous encounters. Nevertheless, they agree to stay matched for all their respective upcoming holiday engagements. As the pair gets closer, perhaps their business arrangement might turn into something more this holiday season.

Hallmark Channel is thrilled to announce an all-new original movie sequel to Christmas in Evergreen!
Tune in for the premiere of Christmas in Evergreen: Letters to Santa, a follow-up to the 2017 movie as a part of the Hallmark Channel event, Countdown to Christmas.

The movie again takes place in Evergreen, a fictional small town based on Hallmark artist Geoff Greenleaf's Christmas illustrations, which will be featured throughout the sequel, too.
