Part of Hallmark Channel's COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS, the #1 Most Treasured Holiday Destination by Television Viewers; Cameron Mathison Co-Stars

A Christmas department store tradition brings two window decorators together in a holiday competition in the World Premiere of "Window Wonderland," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie premiering Saturday, November 23 at 8pm ET/PT, 7C. Grammy(R) Award-Winner Naomi Judd ("Nearlyweds"), Chyler Leigh ("Grey's Anatomy"), Paul Campbell ("Play the Game") and Cameron Mathison ("All My Children") star in the festive holiday tale, part of Hallmark Channel's annual COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS, the #1 most treasured holiday destination by television viewers.

It's no holds barred when two Manhattan department store employees vie for the same job during the busy Christmas season. Sloan Van Doren (Leigh) is a driven young woman determined to become the next window dresser at McGuire's department store and to uphold a 95-year old artistic holiday tradition. Serious and professional with an upper-crust air, she's the polar opposite of the happy-go-lucky Jake Dooley (Campbell), who also wants the job. When Mr. Fitch (Matty Finochio, "Kiss at Pine Lake"), the head of advertising and promotion, gives them a challenge, the competition is on: each will create a series of seasonal storefront windows twice a week until Christmas. The creator of whichever window display gets the most attention from passersby will get the job.

As they go through their paces, with Jake's obvious talent grabbing the public's attention, a silent but mutual attraction develops between the pair, hampered by the contest and the presence of Kenneth (Mathison), Sloan's blueblood boyfriend, who can't understand the importance Sloan is placing on this job and why she won't go to Aspen with him for the holidays. Supporting the efforts of the window dressers are McGuire's veteran window washer Mac (Terence Kelly, "Goodnight for Justice") and brassy bathroom attendant Rita (Judd) who have eyes for each other but haven't done anything about it - yet. Love is in the air at McGuire's but things aren't exactly what they seem. It will take a little Christmas magic for everything to come into clear, picture perfect view. Let the games begin!

"Window Wonderland" is a Winwonder Productions, Inc. Barbara Fisher, Ira Pincus, John Morayniss and Margaret O'Brien are executive producers. Randolph Cheveldave is producer. Michael M. Scott directed from a script written by Tippi Dobrofsky and Neal Dobrofsky.
