Hallmark Channel?s "Countdown to Christmas," Preeminent TV Holiday Destination

Elizabeth Berkley ("Saved by the Bell") stars with Jason Gray-Stanford ("Monk") in the World Premiere of "Lucky Christmas," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie premiering Holiday 2011. Hallmark Channel's "Countdown to Christmas," one of the most anticipated seasonal events in entertainment, features more hours of holiday-themed programming than any other network.

In "Lucky Christmas," Holly Ceroni (Berkley) is a single mother who has been destitute when it comes to luck and love. No one can afford a personal chef, forcing Holly to go back to waitressing. She buys a lottery ticket, kissing it for good luck before she tosses it in the glove compartment of her car, hoping this Christmas things will get better. That night Holly's car is stolen, adding to her streak of misfortune. The next morning Holly discovers her lotto numbers are in fact the million dollar winner, but the ticket is in her missing car. Mike Ronowski (Stanford) is one of the men behind Holly's missing vehicle; he and his friend had inadvertently taken Holly's car the night before. When Mike's greedy friend finds the winning lottery ticket he suggests that Mike romance Holly in order to get a cut of the money to help save his family business. As Mike gets to know Holly, he unexpectedly falls in love with her and realizes there are more important things in life than money. Will Holly's losing streak continue, or is fate finally on her side this Christmas?

"Lucky Christmas" is a Julijette Inc. Production in association with Smash Media Inc. Shelley Hack and Harry Winer are executive producers. Juliette Hagopian is producer. Gary Yates directed from a script by Sheri Davenport. Based on a story by Sheri Davenport and Harry Winer.
