Hallmark Channel, the biggest holiday destination in television, presents the World Premiere of "The Good Witch's Gift" starring Catherine Bell as Cassie Nightingale who discovers it is going to take more than just a little magic to get this good witch down the aisle in "The Good Witch's Gift," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie premiering Saturday, November 13 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). The "Army Wives" star reunites with Chris Potter ("Heartland") to reprise her role in the second sequel in Hallmark Channel's beloved movie series, "The Good Witch," as an enchanting witch with a big heart, who proves the perfect family cannot be conjured without a lot of love. Also, as of this filing, breaking news that Catherine Bell has just signed on to do a 4th installment of the highly-rated movie series which will film during her "AW" hiatus this November.

Cassandra "Cassie" Nightingale (Bell) always has a few tricks up her sleeve, but is surprised when her handsome fianc�, chief of police Jake Russell (Potter), proposes they set their wedding date for Christmas Eve�only six days away! The two hurry to plan the magical holiday wedding in time to spend Christmas morning together as a family, but run into trouble when a criminal from Jake's past, Leon (Graham Abbey, "The Border"), returns to town. Jake fears Leon is planning to ruin the nuptials, but he isn't prepared for the problems that arise in his own family when his two teenaged kids get into a huge argument, and grandpa George (Peter MacNeill, "Queer as Folk"), feeling unwanted in the family, threatens to move out.

Cassie must deal with her own dilemma when the selfishly snobby mayor's wife, Martha (Catherine Disher, "The Border"), searching for a job in the bad economy, promotes herself from partygoer to wedding planner. On the day of the big event, things only get worse as the minister cancels at the last minute, and the marriage license arrives in the mail bearing the wrong names. Just when it looks like Jake won't be able to give Cassie the family she has always wanted for Christmas, he finds out there is more to his magical bride than meets the eye.

"The Good Witch's Gift" is a Whizbang Films Production in association with Lee Distribution, Inc. Orly Adelson, Jonathan Eskenas and Frank Siracusa are the executive producers and Catherine Bell is co-executive producer. Andrea Raffaghello is the producer.
