DESCRIPTION: (from Hallmark's press release, October 2012) You know, it's hard out there for an elf. First of all, you live up in the North Pole, where there's really nothing much to do. No malls. A crummy dating scene. And good luck trying to find a decent restaurant. Now imagine that this elf is young and beautiful, and she's stuck making toys all day long - and all night long, too. This is the premise that launches "Help for the Holidays," a charming Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere on Sunday, December 9 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). The film stars Summer Glau ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") as Santa's elf Christine, a young lass busily making toys and getting bored to tears up in the Pole. Christine is convinced that this is pretty much as good as it's going to get when Santa receives an emergency wish from a little boy in Los Angeles. It seems that the boy is desperate for a genuine family Christmas with his too-busy clan, and it's Christine who gets dispatched to L.A. to help make it happen. She interviews to be the nanny for kids Ally (Izabela Vidovic, "Christmas Angel") and Will (Mason Cook," Spy Kids: All the Time in the World"), who are too often left unsupervised and dismissed as an afterthought by their parents Sara (Eva La Rue of "CSI: Miami") and Scott (Dan Gauthier of "One Life to Live"). Mom and Dad, you see, run a mega-successful holiday store, and as a result their kids too often get left without a real Christmas to call their own.
