Show Notes for Saturday, December 05 & Sunday, December 06, 2020

This weekend we visit with Danica McKellar (The Wonder Years, The West Wing, DWTS & more) about her latest HALLMARK CHRISTMAS MOVIE “Christmas She Wrote” which premiers this Sunday, December 6, 8 pm ET/PT on Hallmark Channel.

When Kayleigh’s (Danica McKellar) New York advice column, “Your Best Self,” is the casualty of belt-tightening by the paper right before Christmas, she heads home for the holidays to reconnect with her family and consider what’s next. Kayleigh’s quiet Christmas at home gets turned on end when Tripp (Dylan Neal), the new editor in chief responsible for the decision, suddenly shows up to woo her back and make her loyal readers happy.
