The new Hallmark movie Take Me Back For Christmas will premiere as part of the network’s Christmas in July lineup. The film stars Vanessa Lengies and Corey Sevier.

New Hallmark movie
In Take Me Back For Christmas, Lengies plays Renée, a woman who has always dreamed of starting her own business. After putting her dreams on hold to take care of her mother, Renée is feeling unfulfilled in her dead-end job at a small gift shop.
At the end of a particularly difficult day, Renée is asked by a Christmas display elf if she wants to make a wish. Although she is skeptical, her exasperation gets the best of her, and she wishes for a different life. To her surprise, she wakes up in a New York City high-rise and discovers she is the CEO of one of the most successful meal-kit delivery companies in the world.
But her excitement turns to distress when she finds out that in this life, she is no longer married to her husband, Aaron.
Determined to get him back, she hires Aaron, now a successful chef, to develop a Christmas dinner meal kit for the city’s food banks. With her new plan in place, she and Aaron begin to fall in love all over again, bringing her one step closer to “having it all.” But as complications arise in this new reality and the clock ticks closer to Christmas Eve, Renée is forced to ask herself if going back is the key to moving forward in life and love.
