Candace Cameron Bure will debut her first Christmas movie on the New Network

Goodbye, Hallmark. Hello Great American Family. After starring in over 20 films, hosting the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries series and anchoring various Hallmark promotions over the past decade, the so-called “Queen of Christmas” Candace Cameron Bure will debut her first holiday film with Great American Media this November.

Bure officially joined the new network in April under a deal to develop, produce and star in film and television on GAC Family and GAC Living, including playing a key role in the company’s annual Great American Christmas franchise. The brand prides itself on featuring family-friendly series, original holiday movies and seasonal rom-coms that “celebrate faith, family and country.”

IN people exclusively, Bure, 46, revealed that her first Christmas film under the auspices of GAC, Christmas giftwill air in November.

“Christmas gift is to slow down enough to recognize what is right before our eyes,” Bure said in a statement. “The hustle and bustle of the Christmas season will be upon us before we know it, but in the quiet moments we hear God speak to us, guiding our way to most important.”

The film, created in partnership with her company Candy Rock Entertainment, will see Bure play Maggie Larson, “an overworked real estate agent and type-A mom who takes her family to spend Christmas with her widowed brother and his daughter. Maggie and her brother have decidedly different expectations for the holiday. Through a series of transformative events, Maggie learns to embrace the reason for the season.”

The Queen of Christmas herself!

GAC Media is Hallmark’s latest competition when it comes to typical Christmas programming. Launching in September 2021, the brand acquired by former Hallmark Media CEO Bill Abbott successfully got a handful of Hallmark mainstays to make the switch, including Bure, Lori Loughlin and Trevor Donovan. Other stars such as Danica McKellar, Cameron Mathison, Debbie Matenopoulos, Jenny Garth, Jessica Lowndes, Matthew McCall, Chad Michael Murray, Sam Page, Becca Tobin, Jill Wagner and DuShane Williams will appear on both networks.

“I am constantly looking for ways I can inspire people to live lives of purpose. GAC fits my brand perfectly; we share a vision of creating compelling wholesome content for an audience that wants to watch programming for and with the whole family,” Bure said in a statement at the time of his deal with GAC. “Great, quality entertainment with a positive message is what my partnership with GAC it’s everything!”

The Great American Christmas returns on October 21 with a new lineup of original holiday movies premiering every Saturday and Sunday. Christmas movies will also be shown throughout the day and night until the end of 2022.

Make hot cocoa while you flip back and forth from Hallmark to GAC this holiday season, Christmas lovers.
