�MEET THE SANTAS� - A JOYOUS HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL HOLIDAY MOVIE STARRING STEVE GUTTENBERG, CRYSTAL BERNARD AND EMMY� AWARD WINNER MARIETTE HARTLEY

Sequel to Hallmark Channel�s Highest Rated Original Movie Premieres Saturday, December 17

�Meet the Santas,� a Hallmark Channel Original movie for the entire family starring Steve Guttenberg, Crystal Bernard and Emmy� Award Winner Mariette Hartley, premiering Saturday, December 17 at (9/8c), is sure to melt everyone�s heart this holiday season.

�Meet the Santas� is the sequel to Hallmark Channel�s highest-rated original movie ever � �Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus� � and follows Nicholas �Nick� Claus (Steve Guttenberg, �Three Men and A Baby�) Beth Marshall (Crystal Bernard, �Wings�) and Beth�s nine-year-old son Jake (Dominic Scott Kay, �Minority Report�) as Nick and Beth prepare for their long-awaited Christmas Eve nuptials and become a real family. After the wedding, they plan on taking over the �family business� from Nick�s dad, Santa Claus, who has officially retired.

Sounds simple enough, but Beth�s prim and proper society mother, Joanna (Mariette Hartley, �Silence of the Heart�) has turned the wedding into her own major production and Nick has his work cut out for him trying to win over her frosty personality. Add Nick�s parents, Santa and Mrs. Claus to the mix and Beth fears she will never win her mother�s approval; something she has been trying to earn her entire life. Not to mention the fact that the elder Santa�s faithful and fussy executive assistant Ernest (Armin Shimerman, �Star Trek: Deep Space Nine�) is going to make sure that Nick fills his father�s rather large shoes exactly right. Maybe it�s time the adults get a lesson in believing and the true meaning of Christmas spirit. One thing is certain�the Claus� are coming to town this holiday season on Hallmark Channel and it will be unforgettable!

�Meet the Santas� is a Hallmark Entertainment Presentation. Robert Halmi, Jr. and Larry Levinson are executive producers. Nick Lombardo and Michael Moran are the co-executive producers. Al Dickerson and Jeff Kloss are producers. The director is Harvey Frost and Pamela Wallace is the writer.
