SANTA ENCOURAGES CHILDREN TO GIVE TO THOSE LESS FORTUNATE ENSURING THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS IS SAVED IN "CANCEL CHRISTMAS," A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE, NOVEMBER 13

STARRING GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINEE JUDD NELSON AS SANTA CLAUS

Hallmark Channel's COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS: More True Holiday-Themed Programming Than any Other Network; Hallmark Channel Official Cable TV Partner with Marine Toys for Tots

"Cancel Christmas" is Rated: S for Santa, C for Caring and J for Joy*

Golden Globe nominee Judd Nelson ("Billionaire Boys Club") stars in "Cancel Christmas" a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere Sunday, November 13 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). Starring alongside Nelson are Justin Landry ("Periods of Rain"), Connor Price ("Dead Zone") and newcomer Sante Scaletta. Hallmark Channel's COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS features more true holiday-themed programming than any other network. Hallmark Channel is proud to be the official TV partner with Marine Toys for Tots working with the foundation to fulfill their mission that every child deserves a toy during the holidays.

Imagine Santa's (Nelson) surprise when the Christmas Board of Directors issues an ultimatum to holiday's top Elf: In 30 days or less, make Christmas less commercial and material, or lose it forever. The Board is so sure the turnaround is hopeless that they give Santa the task of changing the hearts of privileged kids so they, in turn, will reach out to help a less fortunate boy. As he views the mission before him, Santa sees the following themes: private school, privilege, rich kids, mean kids, a science fair, a Golden Retriever, and a friendless boy in a wheelchair who could benefit greatly from the new 'MoBius' robotic chair. Daunting? No more so than making reindeer fly. If ever there was a force for joy, goodness and sharing, it is the mythical man in red. After all, it's Christmas - believe with all your heart!

"Cancel Christmas" is a Chesler/ Perlmutter Production. Executive Producers are Lewis Chesler, David Perlmutter, Robert Vaughn and John Bradshaw. Producer is Markie Posival. The movie is directed by John Bradshaw from a script by David Alexander.

* Hallmark Channel's COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS created a new television tradition for 2011: the Christmas TV ratings system. The Christmas ratings include: S for Santa, T for Tree-Trimming, J for Joy, F for Family Meal, G for Family Gathering, P for Presents and C for Caring. Have a very Hallmark Christmas!

The iBOT Mobility System, the robotic wheelchair featured in "Cancel Christmas," is designed to give independence and equality to people with severe mobility problems. Developed by Dean Kamen in partnership with DEKA, (the same people responsible for the Segway and Luke Arm) and Johnson and Johnson's Independence Technology division, the iBOT is unique in its ability to not only transition from four to two wheels, balancing the seated person at eye level with a standing person, but without help, can also climb a flight of stairs.

Hallmark Channel, owned and operated by Crown Media Holdings, Inc., is a 24-hour basic cable network that provides a diverse slate of high-quality entertainment programming available in high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) to a national audience of 87 million subscribers. The top tier program service is distributed through approximately 5,492 cable systems and communities as well as direct-to-home satellite services across the country.
