|[via press release from The Hallmark Channel]
�MEET THE SANTAS� - A JOYOUS HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL HOLIDAY MOVIE STARRING STEVE GUTTENBERG, CRYSTAL BERNARD AND EMMY� AWARD WINNER MARIETTE HARTLEY
Sequel to Hallmark Channel�s Highest Rated Original Movie
Premieres Saturday, December 17
�Meet the Santas,� a Hallmark Channel Original movie for the entire family
starring Steve Guttenberg, Crystal Bernard and Emmy� Award Winner Mariette Hartley,
premiering Saturday, December 17 at (9/8c), is sure to melt everyone�s heart this
�Meet the Santas� is the sequel to Hallmark Channel�s highest-rated original
movie ever � �Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus� � and follows Nicholas �Nick� Claus (Steve
Guttenberg, �Three Men and A Baby�) Beth Marshall (Crystal Bernard, �Wings�) and
Beth�s nine-year-old son Jake (Dominic Scott Kay, �Minority Report�) as Nick and Beth
prepare for their long-awaited Christmas Eve nuptials and become a real family. After
the wedding, they plan on taking over the �family business� from Nick�s dad, Santa
Claus, who has officially retired.
Sounds simple enough, but Beth�s prim and proper society mother, Joanna
(Mariette Hartley, �Silence of the Heart�) has turned the wedding into her own major
production and Nick has his work cut out for him trying to win over her frosty
personality. Add Nick�s parents, Santa and Mrs. Claus to the mix and Beth fears she will
never win her mother�s approval; something she has been trying to earn her entire life.
Not to mention the fact that the elder Santa�s faithful and fussy executive assistant
Ernest (Armin Shimerman, �Star Trek: Deep Space Nine�) is going to make sure that
Nick fills his father�s rather large shoes exactly right. Maybe it�s time the adults get a
lesson in believing and the true meaning of Christmas spirit. One thing is certain�the
Claus� are coming to town this holiday season on Hallmark Channel and it will be unforgettable!

and Larry Levinson are executive producers. Nick Lombardo and Michael Moran are the
co-executive producers. Al Dickerson and Jeff Kloss are producers. The director is
