Aimeé Teegarden (“Friday Night Lights”) and Tanner Novlan (“The Bold and the Beautiful”) star in “Christmas Class Reunion,” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, December 10 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual “Countdown to Christmas” programing event.
In 2007, Brookswood High’s senior class earned themselves the moniker of the “cursed class” after a series of unlucky events. Now 15 years later, they have returned home for their high school reunion. Elle (Teegarden), former class president, valedictorian, and “most likely to succeed” spearheads the reunion. Unfortunately, as is tradition, despite perfectly planning the reunion things fall apart, leaving Elle to team up with Devin (Novlan), former class vice-president and troublemaker.
While navigating this crossroads, Elle tries to reconnect with her high school crush Kam (Marshall Williams, “Glee”), who is similarly career obsessed. Meanwhile, Katie (Maya Ford “Time for Him to Come Home for Christmas”) and Jay (Dejan Loyola “Saving Hope”), once crowned “cutest couple,” are now veiling their relationship hardships as they keep up the appearance of being happily married. Samantha (Stephanie Bennett “Shadowhunters”), formally socially awkward and now a successful news anchor, is ready to show everyone her glow up as she waits to hear if she landed her dream job. Over the course of their time reuniting, the classmates challenge each other to remember who they were, who they are, and who they want to be. And as the clock ticks down to their grand Christmas Eve reunion, this “cursed class” is reminded that there’s nothing quite so wonderful as an old friend…or a new love.
