TRADING CHRISTMAS (HALLMARK)
telefilm/mini-series in the can
(from Hallmark's press release, September 2011) Emily (Ford) misses her daughter Heather (Lahana) who is attending college in Boston. Since her father died, Heather is sensitive to her mom's dependence on long-standing holiday traditions. This Christmas, Heather has planned a trip to Phoenix with her boyfriend, but tells her mother she is staying on campus to study. After arranging a house-swap with Charles (Cavanagh), an English professor from Boston who wants Washington State's solitude in order to finish his novel, Emily hops on a flight to Boston to surprise Heather for Christmas. Unaware of the house swap, Emily's best friend, Faith (Miller) walks in on Charles at Emily's house and in Boston, Ray, Charles' brother (Bellows) responds to a 911 call only to find Emily at Charles' condo. Will Christmas travel calamities lead to cross-country romances? Or have there been one too many surprises already?
