Hallmark Channel rolls out its 12th and final film of the 2014 Countdown to Christmas Sunday night at 8/7c with the premiere of The Christmas Parade, starring AnnaLynne McCord, Jefferson Brown (Dear Viola), and HGTV’s Drew Scott. It’s directed by Jonathan Wright, who did the very charming A Very Merry Mix-Up last year.

Here’s what to expect: A popular network morning host finds herself humiliated on the air by her fiancé and disappears to a small town. While there, she helps a budding artist save a community art center for the town’s kids, by helping them with their float for the annual Christmas Parade. While doing so, she must find a way to heal her own broken heart, find new love, and revive her own broken Christmas spirit.

It’s a nice fish out of water story that’s a bit reminiscent of Honeymoon For One, which ran on Hallmark Channel a couple of years ago, about another professional successful woman who hits a major speed bump in her personal life and has to stop and re-evaluate what’s important. It’s a nice capper to two months of original holiday movies. Thanks so much for reading our coverage! Hallmark Channel will resume new movies in 2015.
