Los Angeles television producer Maggie Baker unwittingly falls for Danny Wise, the son and former producer of his mother's popular annual Christmas special Julia Wise Lifestyle. When Maggie's secret plan to reunite Danny and his two brothers with Julia during the live broadcast in Vermont goes awry, Maggie is reminded that above all, it is the love for family and friends that makes the merriest of Christmas.
In LA, TV producer Maggie Baker (Jessy Schram) works for home style guru Julia Wise (Teryl Rothery). With pressure from the network, Julia needs to change the Christmas special and recalls her son Danny (Chad Michael Murray) to the show. He used to produce the show before Maggie's time. Maggie's secret plan is to reunite the three Wise brothers for Julia.
It's the classic romantic clash of a devil-may-care cad and an uptight heroine. There isn't much more than that here. It's a Hallmark Christmas romance special. On a super superficial take, Jessy Schram used to play the fragile ingenue or the damsel in distress. Her stick figure really sells her fragility. That persona goes away over time. Quite frankly, Matreya Scarrwener may be a better fit for the role. Both would be fine. The romance is fine but it's nothing super. The premise is not that pun worthy. Also the other brothers are not the most charismatic. At the very least, they need to be comic relief. This is generally pretty bland although the family reunion is pretty sweet.
