Movie to Premiere December 19
Dean Cain ("The Gambler, The Girl and the Gunslinger"), Jean
Louisa Kelly ("Yes, Dear"), Mimi Kennedy ("Dharma and
Greg") and Reginald VelJohnson ("Family Matters") star in
"The Three Gifts," a holiday Hallmark Channel Original Movie
about a childless couple who invite three orphans to spend Christmas with
them and end up falling in love with the boys.
The movie has completed production and will premiere on Hallmark
Channel December 19 (9-11 PM, ET/PT).
Because their orphanage is being renovated, three orphan boys who are
known for being troublemakers temporarily move in with Jack (Cain) and
Cheri (Kelly) Green over the Christmas holiday. Rita Green (Kennedy),
Jack's aunt who runs the orphanage, asks the couple to take the unruly
children during the renovation because they are a loving couple and she
knows they will be good to the children. The Greens are unable to have
children, and Jack is hesitant about becoming a father. He'd rather invent
toys for the couple's toy company.
Rodney (VelJohnson), the toy shop foreman, keeps an eye on the boys who
at first visit and then eventually work in the factory.
The situation is working out nicely except for one thing: Believing
that one of them will be adopted by the couple, the boys are competing
with each other. But they are all in for a big surprise because the couple
has fallen in love with all three and are trying to figure out how to
adopt all of them.
