Fresh off of his starring role in “A Little Daytime Drama,” former “General Hospital” actor Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West) has signed on to his next Hallmark Channel original movie. Paevey will feature alongside Janel Parrish in “Coyote Creek Christmas,” part of Hallmark’s annual “Countdown to Christmas” holiday event. The TV movie is currently in production.
The story follows a woman named Paige (Parrish) who offers to plan the annual holiday party at her parent’s hotel in the Rockies, the Coyote Creek Inn, which will surely help her score a promotion at the upscale event planning company she works for. She decides on a “Christmas around the world” theme, to showcase the universal magic of the season through the diverse Christmas traditions of the Inn’s guests. Dylan (Paevey), a charismatic real estate developer and single father, is visiting Coyote Creek for the holidays with his son. What Paige doesn’t know is that her parents are planning to sell the Inn and that the potential buyer is her new acquaintance Dylan. The fate of the Inn and Paige’s relationships are both left to the magic of the holiday season to decide.
“Coyote Creek Christmas” is produced by Coyote Creek Productions Inc. Antonio Cupo serves as executive producer. Ron French and Steve Harmaty serve as producers. David Strasser directed from a story by Alexa Garster.
