Lifetime Holiday movie The Christmas Contract is set to reunite a number of One Tree Hill alums.
Hilarie Burton, Robert Buckley, Danneel Ackles and Antwon Tanner are set to star with a special appearance by Tyler Hilton.
In The Christmas Contract, written by Cassie Doyle and directed by Monika Mitchell, it’s Jolie’s (Burton) first time going back home to Louisiana since her devastating break up with Foster (Burke). Seeing him is inevitable as their parents run the town’s annual Christmas Market together, but when she discovers Foster is bringing home a new girlfriend, Jolie cannot bear the thought of going home alone and seeing them together.
Her best friend Naomi (Ackles) suggests that Jolie bring her flaky brother, Jack (Buckley), home for Christmas as he has no plans this year. Jolie, a professional web designer, is hesitant; so, Naomi, a lawyer, creates a Christmas contract to give them both something they want—a buffer for those awkward moments around Jolie’s ex and a website to help sell Jack’s upcoming novel. Unbeknownst to them, the Christmas contract proves to be so much more than what they signed up for.
Production is already underway in Louisiana with the film set to be a part of “It’s A Wonderful Lifetime” the network’s yearly Christmas movie season.
