A NEW, ORIGINAL HOLIDAY FILM FOR GREAT AMERICAN CHRISTMAS 2023

NEW YORK, NY – July 12, 2023 – Great American Family today announced its new original holiday film, Christmas on Windmill Way, starring Chad Michael Murray (Angel Falls Christmas, “One Tree Hill”) and Christa Taylor Brown (“Wynonna Earp”). Christmas on Windmill Way is one of 20 new original holiday movies premiering as part of Great American Christmas, which returns October 20 with new holiday movie premieres every Saturday and Sunday and 24/7 Christmas movies through the end of the year. Holiday films fans need not wait until October as Great American Christmas in July is currently airing on Great American Family.

In Christmas on Windmill Way, Mia Meijer (Taylor Brown) excitedly anticipates the town’s Christmas Market Dutch Bake-Off competition and is filled with confidence that her Oma, Ann, will win the top “Golden Rolling Pin” prize with her award-winning Kerststol when she learns Oma has difficult news to share. For a more secure financial future, Ann had to sell the land deed to their Windmill Way property that had been in their family for generations. It’s an especially tough pill for Mia to swallow when she learns the overseeing Property Developer is her former boyfriend, Brady Schaltz (Michael Murray), who also must let Mia and Ann know that a new deal has come into play. Initially thought to be safe, the Meijer family-owned heritage Dutch sawmill, renowned for the past 90 years for its fine millwork and beautiful wooden furniture, will be torn down to put up a luxurious resort.

Christmas on Windmill Way is executive produced by Brad Krevoy, Amy Krell, Cara J. Russell, Susie Belzberg Krevoy, Don McBrearty, and Kelly Martin. W. Michael Beard and James Mou are supervising producers. Don McBrearty directs from an original screenplay Christmas on Windmill Way by Billy Schofield.
