“Grey’s Anatomy” alums Sarah Drew and Justin Breuning (“All My Childen”) are set to reunite in Lifetime’s “Reindeer Games Homecoming,” part of the network’s upcoming “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime” holiday lineup it was announced today during Lifetime’s TCA session.
Drew will pull triple duty as the star, executive producer, and writer of the movie which follows MacKenzie Graves (Drew), a brilliant, competitive, crossword puzzle-loving Biology teacher in Vermont who recently lost her father, beloved fire chief and the heart of the town’s holiday fundraising tradition “The Reindeer Games.” Every year since his death, she competes with her dad’s former team, a group of colorful retired firefighters, to win the Games and keep his tradition alive. This holiday, however, her world is rocked when fading Hollywood star, and Mac’s high school crush, Chase Weston (Bruening), comes home for Christmas to visit his pregnant sister and nephew and is begrudgingly roped into participating in the Games. When the opportunity to compete against her former mega crush arises, Mac is determined to show him up and win the Kris Kringle Cup at all costs. As the competition heats up, so does the spark between Mac and Chase, and Chase soon finds himself eager to not only win the games, but also win her heart as well. Brian Sills also stars.
“Reindeer Games Homecoming” is produced by Johnson Production Group for Off Camera Entertainment. Stephanie Slack, Margret Huddleston, Sarah Drew, and Tim Johnson serve as executive producers. The film is directed by Brian Herzlinger with a script written by Drew.
The full “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime” slate and airdates will be announced this fall.
