(from Hallmark's press release, October 2012) In the holiday season production "Christmas Song" - a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere, Saturday, November 3 (8p.m. ET/PT 7C) - a Christmas carol competition has much more than the quality of the yuletide music at stake. It promises to determine and alter the very direction of several lives. The film stars Natasha Henstridge ("The Whole Nine Yards," "The Secret Circle") and Gabriel Hogan ("Heartland") as our music teacher protagonists, Diana Deason and Ken Stoddard. Each has been responsible for award-winning choral groups in the past, but now that each of their New York City high schools have merged into a single institution, called Carter-Cresswell Academy, suddenly two's a crowd as Diana and Ken are pitted against one another to decide which of them will get the single music department director position. So now they're forced to enter dueling Christmas song competitions, but against this pressurized backdrop of angst, love is in the air. That's the beauty of "Christmas Song." When it seems odds are stacked highest, people do the extraordinary and humanity wins the day. And that, holiday film fans, is what the Christmas spirit is all about. It is where the people who really love Christmas movies gather to celebrate the magic that the yuletide brings.
