ION Television Celebrates the Holiday Season with the World Premieres of Two Heartwarming Original Films

"The Christmas Clause," Starring Lea Thompson, and "Christmas Town," starring Patrick Muldoon to Premiere in December

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- 'Tis the season to cozy up to your TV set and catch up on your favorite traditional holiday films while curling up with some new ones. Next month, ION Television, the "Positively Entertaining" general entertainment network, will broadcast the world premiere of two heartwarming holiday-themed original films. Boasting stars from both the large and small screens, The Christmas Clause will premiere on ION Television on December 18th at 9:00 p.m. ET, and Christmas Town will premiere December 11th at 9:00 p.m. ET.

The Christmas Clause, produced by Aro Entertainment and Cinamour Entertainment, stars Lea Thompson (Caroline in the City). This family film delves into the world of Sophie Kelly (Thompson), a top-rated lawyer with three kids and a husband that take up all her time. All of her family and work stress comes to a chaotic halt days before Christmas at the shopping mall when she sees Santa and wishes for a different life. However, the grass is not always greener as a single, successful lawyer with her own firm and the most eligible bachelor vying or her attention. Freedom has its price as she realizes the sweet life is not so sweet and must race against time to find the true meaning of family and love before Christmas Day.

Christmas Town, produced by Aro Entertainment, stars Nicole de Boer (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, The Dead Zone) and Patrick Muldoon (Starship Troopers, Stigmata, Melrose Place). This film follows Liza McCann (de Boer), a cynical young reporter and single mom, and her eight-year-old son, as they visit her father, a stuffy ex-banker living in a small town in Central California known as "America's Christmas Town." At the edge of town, a mysterious warehouse sits behind gates. While Liza reunites with her father and unexpectedly meets Kevin (Muldoon), the cute, laid back local caf� owner who believes in the magic of Christmas, her son sees the spirit first-hand as he sneaks over to the warehouse and spies what he believes to be elves, a sleigh, reindeer and even Santa Claus. In the end, Liza learns how to believe again � not just in Christmas, but in the possibility of love.
