Danica McKellar and Neal Bledsoe to star in the new Great American Family holiday movie “Christmas at the Drive-In.”
McKellar is also serving as an executive producer for the film. This marks her first original Christmas film since signing a multi-picture deal with Great American Family.
“Christmas at the Drive-In” reunites McKellar and Bledsoe following the successful premiere of “The Winter Palace in January.”
This movie is part of Great American Christmas, the network’s holiday programming franchise which returns on October 21 with a new slate of original holiday movie premieres every Saturday and Sunday and Christmas movies all day and all night through the end of 2022. “Christmas at the Drive-In” was written by Rick Garman.
In “Christmas at the Drive-In,” Sadie Walker (Danica McKellar) is starting over in her hometown of Chesterfield, New York, following a series of major life disruptions that include leaving her law practice after losing her biggest case and no longer being engaged.
Now a law professor at Chesterfield College, Sadie has no interest in ever pursuing law again until she finds herself fighting to preserve a cherished local landmark, Chesterfield Drive-In. Sadie is surprised to find out her passionate effort to keep the drive-in open has staunch opposition – the late owner’s son and Sadie’s childhood sweetheart, Holden (Neal Bledsoe).
