JILL WAGNER AND NICK BATEMAN STAR IN “A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE FOR DAISY”(WT)SET TO PREMIERE DECEMBER 11 EXCLUSIVELY ON GAC FAMILY
NEW YORK, NY – October 5, 2021 – GAC Family today announced Jill Wagner (“Mystery 101,” “Christmas in Evergreen”) and Nick Bateman (“Gambit: Playing for Keeps,” “A Brush with Love”) will star in a GAC Family original movie “A Christmas Miracle for Daisy”(wt). The new holiday movie premieres December 11 at 8pm ET/PT as part of GAC Family’s “Great American Christmas” franchise.
In “A Christmas Miracle for Daisy,” Whitney Alder (Wagner) owns interior design firm, Marietta Designs, which she runs with her friend Andi (Tegan Moss, “Aurora Teagarden Mysteries”) in the small town of Marietta, Montana. Whitney is designing Santa’s float for the annual Marietta Christmas Parade when a potential job opportunity comes her way: the full redesign of a landmark home by Christmas Eve. Despite the challenge, Whitney and Andi sign onto the job – only to discover the home’s new owner is Whitney’s ex-boyfriend, Connor Sheenan (Bateman), who has moved to town from Los Angeles with his bright-eyed, young daughter, Daisy (Rubi Tupper). Connor had no intention of becoming a family man, but when his goddaughter is orphaned, he adopts her and commits to becoming a devoted single dad. More than anything, Daisy wishes for a mom to complete her picture-perfect family, and no prospect is as perfect as Whitney. Tall order, but Christmas is a time for miracles.
“A Christmas Miracle for Daisy” is Executive Produced by Brad Krevoy, Amanda Phillips, Eric Jarboe, Vince Balzano, Jill Wagner, Susie Belzberg Krevoy, and Mike Rohl. Supervising Producers are Anthony Epp, Jonathan Shore, and Michael Shepherd. Producer is Donald Munroe. Associate Producer is Rob Grant. Mike Rohl directs from the original teleplay by J.B. White which is adapted from Jane Porter’s novel, A Christmas Miracle for Daisy.
