Lacey Chabert gave fans a glimpse at her new Hallmark movie on Instagram. In a post promoting A Merry Scottish Christmas, she shared a photo from the film, which will premiere as part of Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas lineup.
“I’m so excited that I finally get to share this with you!” she wrote in the caption. “Reuniting with @iamscottwolf for #AMerryScottishChristmas for @hallmarkchannel was a dream come true! Scott is forever family to me and this reunion with him was pure joy.”
New Hallmark movie
Lacey Chabert and Scott Wolf played siblings on the hit TV series Party of Five. The show, which also launched the careers of Jennifer Love Hewitt and Neve Campbell, followed a group of five brothers and sisters forced to band together when their parents are killed in a car accident.
Chabert has said she and Wolf have looked for opportunities over the years to work together again.
“Scott and I have talked for years about doing another project together. When we first read this story about these siblings at a crossroads, we both knew it was the perfect opportunity,” Chabert said.
A Merry Scottish Christmas
In A Merry Scottish Christmas, Chabert plays Dr. Lindsey Morgan and Wolf plays Brad Morgan, siblings who have drifted apart over the years. When their mother invites them to spend Christmas at her childhood home in Scotland, they both reluctantly accept.
Once there, they fall in love with the idyllic Glencrave and its beautiful 15th-century castle, unique Christmas traditions steeped in history, and warm and friendly townspeople.
But the holiday visit becomes complicated for everyone when the Morgan siblings discover a colossal family secret that their mom has been keeping from them. As the siblings work hard to restrengthen their relationship — and Lindsey becomes smitten with Glencrave’s handsome estate manager (played by James Robinson) — they must each decide what is important to them to determine their own futures.
Both Chabert and Wolf were executive producers for the movie, which was filmed on location in Scotland.
In a statement made through Hallmark, Wolf said he is thrilled to be working with Chabert again.
“Working with Lacey on ‘Party of Five’ was one of my favorite experiences ever,” he said. “Reuniting after all of these years to tell such a beautiful story together is a dream that I’m so glad is coming true.”
A Merry Scottish Christmas will premiere on Hallmark Channel on Saturday, November 18 at 8/7c.
