CHRISTMAS CHOIR, THE (HALLMARK)
telefilm/mini-series in the can
(from Hallmark's press release) Peter Andrews (Jason Gedrick, “Desperate Housewives”) is a workaholic accountant with no interest in the holidays. He has shut out everyone from his life, including his fiancée Jill (Cindy Sampson, “Swamp Devil”) who decides she can’t go through with the marriage. Peter soon finds his calling in helping the less fortunate when he meets a homeless man named Bob (Tyrone Benskin, “300”), who inspires Peter to start a choir at the homeless shelter. With the help of Sister Agatha (Rhea Perlman, “Cheers”) and the men at the shelter, Peter turns his life around, making the choir’s success his main priority. Working with the homeless allows Peter to realize that everyone deserves a second chance at life, love, and relationships. Inspired by a true story, “The Christmas Choir” premieres Saturday, December 6 (9-11 p.m.)
