WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- ION Television's first originally produced television film, the holiday themed "A Golden Christmas," is set to make its world premiere on the Network on Sunday, December 13 at 9:00 PM, ET. The announcement was made today by Leslie Chesloff, Executive Vice President, Programming, ION Media Networks. This two-hour film marks the first of a dozen originally produced made-for-television movies that ION Television is slated to roll out throughout 2010.

"A Golden Christmas" stars Andrea Roth ("Rescue Me"), Jason London ("Dazed and Confused"), Nicholas Brendon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), Bruce Davison ("Ghost Whisperer," "Longtime Companion"), Elisa Donovan ("Sabrina, The Teenage Witch") and Alley Mills ("The Wonder Years," "The Bold and the Beautiful"). The film is produced by MarVista Entertainment; directed by John Murlowski; and written by Jay Cipriani.

"We are thrilled that "A Golden Christmas" is kicking off our new originally produced series of movies-for-television," said Chesloff. "It's a touching, funny story that is sure to become a holiday classic. We look forward to the premiere of this film and our other original movies, which together will help anchor our weekend primetime line-up as we move into 2010."

Synopsis:

One summer a long time ago, a little girl and a little boy were brought together by a very special dog. They played all summer long, it was puppy love. Then the summer ended and they never saw each other again until... years later when her parents (Davison and Mills) retire and decide to sell their house. Jessica (Roth), recently widowed, decides she needs to start over and moves back home with her son. She hopes to buy the old house as a Christmas surprise, however, her plan goes awry when she discovers that her parents have already sold it. What she does not know is that the house has been sold to the very same person that she spent that magical summer with years ago.
