GAC FAMILY ANNOUNCES START OF PRODUCTION FOR THE CHRISTMAS FARM (wt), STARRING JILL WAGNER AND CAMERON MATHISON
NEW YORK, NY – May 4, 2022 – GAC Family today announced the start of production of The Christmas Farm (wt), starring Jill Wagner (“A Christmas Miracle for Daisy,” “Teen Wolf”) and Cameron Mathison (“Home & Family,” “General Hospital”). The Christmas Farm will premiere as part of GAC Family’s annual “Great American Christmas” celebration.
Janie (Wagner), a rising marketing executive living in The Big Apple, returns to her hometown of Woodland Falls when her Great-Uncle Randall passes away. Janie is not prepared for the gift Randall has bestowed onto his last living relative: the family homestead, Janie’s childhood home. While not immediately sure what to do with a fully functioning farm, Janie agrees to honor Randall’s final request to plan and host Woodland Falls’ annual Winter Wonderland as Randall’s gift to his community. Randall has even arranged for his farmhand, Dylan (Mathison) to help at the event, which is being held in the farm’s sprawling barn. Aware that her Manhattan boyfriend is anxious for her to return to the city so the pair can jet off to a previously planned holiday on the beach, Janie begins to feel an unexpected emotional tug about living life in a more authentic, meaningful way.
Executive Producers of The Christmas Farm are Brad Krevoy, Jill Wagner, Eric Jarboe, Amanda Phillips, Amy Krell, Vince Balzano, Susie Belzberg Krevoy, Kathy Ceroni, Bradley Walsh, and Jimmy Townsend. Producer is David Anselmo. Supervising Producers are Byron A. Martin, W. Michael Beard, and Michael Shepard. Associate Producers are Kaitlyn Greenough and Kelly Martin. Bradley Walsh directs from an original screenplay by Adam Rockoff and Blaine Chiappetta.
GAC Family’s “Great American Christmas” kicks off October 28, 2022, and in anticipation of the second annual holiday programming event, the network is airing encore presentations of 2021’s fan-favorite Christmas movies each Saturday throughout May and June.
