"Northpole" is a holiday adventure never seen before on the network that will employ state-of-the-art CGI technology taking viewers right into the magical world of Santa's wonderfully enchanting hometown. "Northpole" is part of the network's annual "Countdown to Christmas," the #1 most treasured holiday destination by television viewers.

"We are enthusiastic and incredibly proud to work with Hollywood royalty Robert Wagner and Jill St. John on this very special project that will surely become a timeless holiday classic," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming for Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel. "Robert Wagner and Jill St. John capture the essence of 'Northpole' beautifully as Mr. & Mrs. Claus with their spirit, grace, humor and undeniable chemistry."

Northpole, the magical home to Santa & Mrs. Claus (Wagner & St. John), has grown into a huge city powered by the magic of holiday happiness around the world. Yet as people everywhere get too busy to enjoy festive time together, the city is in trouble. Who can help save the cherished traditions of Christmas? One young boy, Kevin (Charles), might have a chance if he can convince his protective mom, Chelsea (Thiessen), to rediscover the magic of the season. With a little added help from Kevin's charming teacher Ryan (Hopkins), a mysterious elf-like girl Clementine (Madison) and a gospel singer named Josephine (Glover), Kevin is determined to bring his mom in on the fun and prove that one small voice can change the hearts of many.

"Northpole" is produced for the Hallmark Channel by Muse Entertainment in association with Crown Media Productions. Executive Producers are Joel S. Rice and Michael Prupas. Irene Litinsky is producer. Douglas Barr directs from a script by Gregg Rossen and Brian Sawyer.
