HIS CHANCES OF SAVING CHRISTMAS DROP LIKE A THERMOMETER IN DECEMBER - GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINEE JUDD NELSON STARS IN "CANCEL CHRISTMAS," A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE, HOLIDAY 2011

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

Kris Kringle's chances of keeping the magic of Christmas going look grim when he is tasked with teaching incorrigible children the essence of giving, or risk having Christmas cancelled forever, in the Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere "Cancel Christmas," starring Golden Globe nominee Judd Nelson ("Billionaire Boys Club"). "Cancel Christmas," premiering Holiday 2011, also stars Justin Landry ("Periods of Rain"), Connor Price ("Dead Zone") and newcomer Sante Scaletta. 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 "Cancel Christmas," imagine Santa's surprise when the Christmas Board of Directors issues an ultimatum to holiday's top Elf: In 30 days or less, make Christmas less commercial and material, or lose it forever. The Board is so sure the turnaround is hopeless that they give Santa the task of changing the hearts of privileged kids so they, in turn, will reach out to help a less fortunate boy. As he views the mission before him, Santa sees the following themes: private school, privilege, rich kids, mean kids, a science fair, a Golden Retriever, and a friendless boy in a wheelchair. Daunting? No more so than making reindeer fly. If ever there was a force for joy, goodness and sharing, it is the mythical man in red. After all, it's Christmas - believe with all your heart!

"Cancel Christmas" is a Chesler/ Perlmutter Production. Executive Producers are Lewis Chesler, David Perlmutter, Robert Vaughn and John Bradshaw. Producer is Markie Posival. The movie is directed by John Bradshaw from a script by David Alexander.
