PUTTING THE COOL IN YULE

DANIEL STERN AND MATT FREWER STAR IN 'BATTLE OF THE BULBS,' THE FILM ABOUT A CHRISTMAS DECORATING CONTEST SO OUTRAGEOUS, IT PUTS THE NO IN NOEL, A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE DECEMBER 18

Daniel Stern ("Home Alone") and Matt Frewer ("Eureka") put the cool in Yule in the Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere, "Battle of the Bulbs," Saturday, December 18 (8 p.m. ET/PT, 7C), a film about dueling neighbors whose Christmas decorating rivalry turns so outrageous, it puts the "no" in "Noel" for the small town sponsoring the annual fete. Hallmark Channel is the biggest holiday destination in television.

Bob (Stern) and Stu (Frewer) are former best friends whose relationship went sour early in life over a friendly wager. Though decades have passed since the incident, neither man is giving up on the grudge. Imagine Bob's surprise when he discovers his old nemisis Stu is back, has moved into the house across the street, and is taking him on mano y mano (loose translation: How many donkeys should one live nativity scene have?) in a competition to win the town's annual Christmas decorating contest. There is no ornament too flimsy, no filament too thin to keep these two warriors from assaulting each other with laser-like illumination and, finally, merrily melting down the town's electrical systems. But when Stu's son falls in love with Bob's daughter, the two men find exceeding abundantly in life is much more important than exceeding the maximum wattage.

"Battle of the Bulbs," is a Brightlight Pictures Production in association with Daniel L. Paulson Productions. Dan Paulson and Shawn Williamson are the executive producers. Jamie Goehring is the producer. Harvey Frost directed from a script by W. Paul Thompson.
