Don’t fret if you think your Saturday night Hallmark Channel film days are over, just because Christmas has come and gone. It’s time to for the network’s WinterFest 2017, a January movie event that begins with “Love on Ice”.
Starring Julie Berman, Andrew Walker and Gail O’Grady, “Love on Ice” airs Saturday night January 7 beginning at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Check out the sneak peek video clip posted below and you’ll get the hang of it!
Berman (“Chicago Med”) plays Emily James, a former figure skating champion, now 27 years old and considered a relic in the world of competitive skating. Emily finds someone who believes in her talent and potential to regain her former glory. That would be Spencer Patterson, played by Andrew Walker (“A Dream of Christmas”) who wants to coach her through the journey.
WinterFest 2017 continues with two more original, romantic-themed films airing Saturday January 14 and 21. Here’s a preview of what’s in store, as stars like Merritt Patterson, Jack Donnelly, Jessy Schram and Luke Mcfarlane make movie magic on Saturday nights.
Hallmark Channel also announced a social media tie-in to WinterFest. The network will solicit viewers to “Show Us Your Snow” where fans can upload photos of their winter festivities on their social media platforms and engage with WinterFest enthusiasts. Users are encouraged to use the hashtag #ShowUsYourSnow and tag@HallmarkChannel to help create a social wall that features fans enjoying the snowfall this winter.
