STUDIO CITY, CA - October 9, 2019 - Lacey Chabert ("Crossword Mysteries: A Puzzle to Die For," Mean Girls) and Sam Page ("The Bold Type") deliver a romantic holiday postcard featuring the wonders of Rome, Italy, as they star in "Christmas in Rome," a new original movie premiering Saturday, November 30 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network's beloved, number one-rated programming event, "Countdown to Christmas," which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Hallmark Channel is historically the #1 television network in all of Q4.
Amanda DeLuca (Chabert) is an American tour guide living in Rome, Italy. Her passion for the city and unorthodox methods cause her to lose her job just days before the Christmas holiday, after once again taking her tourists off their assigned route. While contemplating her future, she stumbles into Oliver Martin (Sam Page), a high-powered New York business executive sent to Rome to help close a deal with one of Italy's top ceramics companies. Lost and late for his meeting, Angela helps Oliver get to his destination, but soon finds herself playing a central role in the deal, as the company owner will only sell to someone who understands the ways of Italy. Oliver smartly hires Angela to be his personal tour guide but gets far more than he bargained for, as a romance blooms between them amidst the backdrop of Rome at Christmastime, and he must learn that life moves at a different pace in Italy. As the deadline approaches for Oliver to close the deal, he is forced to face a choice between following his heart and following the money.
