Rick and Christina Gables

Jodie Sweetin, Andrew Walker and Sharon Lawrence star in Merry & Bright, a new, original movie premiering Saturday, November 2 on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual Countdown to Christmas programming event.

As Christmas approaches, Cate (Sweetin), CEO of Merry & Bright, a small-town candy cane factory, faces the financial challenges of running a seasonal business.  Meanwhile, Gabe (Walker), a New York consultant lacking in Christmas spirit, is begrudgingly tasked with saving the struggling company.  Upon his arrival in the town, Gabe meets Cate, who resents his desire to restructure her business.

Both networks are airing Christmas movies 24/7.

Though they initially clash, Cate and Gabe unexpectedly begin developing feelings for each other.  When Cate tells her mother, Joy (Lawrence), that she intends to focus on business and not get distracted by romance, Joy urges her to follow her heart.

After Gabe convinces a major investment firm to finance Merry & Bright, Cate is thrilled.  That is, until the investor and Gabe ask her to shift the focus of the factory.

When Cate refuses to abandon the tradition her company was built on, she and Gabe part ways.  On Christmas Eve, Cate wonders if Merry & Bright will ever find success and if she’ll ever find a holiday romance again.
