"HAVEN" STAR EMILY ROSE AND EMMY(R) AWARD WINNER LINDSAY WAGNER PREPARE FOR A THANKSGIVING OF HISTORIC PROPORTIONS IN "THE THANKSGIVING HOUSE," A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE NOVEMBER 2

Part of Hallmark Channel's COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS, the #1 Most Treasured Holiday Destination by Television Viewers; Justin Bruening, Adam Kaufman and Bruce Boxleitner Co-Star

Emily Rose ("Haven") stars as a lawyer who inherits a house on what just may be the site of the first Thanksgiving in "The Thanksgiving House," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere Saturday, November 2 at 8pm ET/PT, 7C. Along with Rose, Emmy(R) Award Winner Lindsay Wagner ("Warehouse 13," "Bionic Woman"), Justin Bruening ("Switched at Birth"), Adam Kaufman ("Without a Trace") and Bruce Boxleitner ("Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove," "TRON," "Babylon 5") have stakes in whether "The Thanksgiving House" becomes a part of Plymouth's history, or a private family treasure. "The Thanksgiving House" is part of Hallmark Channel's annual Countdown to Christmas, the #1 most treasured holiday destination by television viewers.

When Boston lawyer Mary Ross (Rose) inherits a house in Plymouth from her late aunt, she has no idea she may have inherited a historical treasure. Mary's initial desire to sell the house is supported by her slick boyfriend, Rick (Kaufman), but she is shocked to discover local historian Everett Mather (Bruening) has evidence that her house is located on the site of the first Thanksgiving! With the house turning into an unexpected tourist attraction, putting Mary in the media spotlight at the prying of unscrupulous gossip blogger Ashleigh Mulligan (Cerina Vincent, "Cabin Fever"), Everett tries to prove his theory and Mary tries to prove anything that will keep the house in her hands. Suddenly, Mary clings to the house as an artifact of her own history before her happy childhood memories were tarnished by her father's abandonment.

Mary and Everett's passionate battle over the house creates a need for legal mediation involving Everett's lawyer father Parker (Boxleitner), but it also creates an undeniable romantic spark. Mary even starts to develop a love for Thanksgiving that radiates from both Everett and his mother, Abigail (Wagner). With the encouragement from Abigail and a newly inspired spirit, Mary is ready to reach out to her father and celebrate Thanksgiving in a big way. But as Mary and Everett become closer and greedy Rick plots to convince Mary to sell, Mary must decide if it is more important to preserve the house's historical ties, or make it the site of many happy Thanksgivings to come.

"The Thanksgiving House," is a Mediapool Production in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer. Randy Pope and Amanda Phillips Atkins are co-executive producers and Lincoln Lageson is the producer. Kevin Connor directed from a teleplay by J.B. White based on a story by Jean Abounader and J.B. White.
