November Christmas…in July & August


Posted: July 29, 2010

Or to put it another way - a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie is shooting in Halifax this summer.  You may have seen Aidan...I mean Emmy award and Golden Globe award nominee John Corbett (“My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” “Sex and the City”) on LIVE! With Regis & Kelly in PEI - looking as tall and handsome as ever.  He talked about the made for TV tearjerker - entitled November Christmas co-starring starring Emmy Award nominee Sam Elliott (“Buffalo Girls”), Karen Allen (“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” “Raiders of the Lost Ark”), Golden Globe award nominee Sarah Paulson (“Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” “Deadwood”) and Emily Alyn Lind (“The Secret Life of Bees,” “All My Children”)

Candles on Bay Street marquee

Hallmark last shot in Nova Scotia in 2006 - using Chester, Lunenburg, Mahone Bay and Halifax as the backdrop for "Candles on Bay Street" starring Alicia Silverstone

It's worth noting that as Aidan...(sorry did it again) John Corbett alluded to on his LIVE! appearance - this production came together beyond quickly - from casting to the 6 weeks shooting to scheduled airdate...all told that's about 4 1/2 months...even IMDB (Internet Movie Data Base) has nothing listed on the production....hmmmm...interesting....

The Top Line & Tune in Time...

The story is told entirely in flashback and set in a small Rhode Island community, where neighbors band together to create magical Halloween and Christmas moments -- several weeks early -- for a young girl named Vanessa who is facing a serious illness.  I would tell you more, but it would only make me well.  Just watch it when it airs Sunday, Nov. 28 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Between you and me - I never miss a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie - you want to talk about tears...I don't even leave the room when the commericals come good - here's just two of my favourites (grab a tissue and enjoy!)
