Danica’s new GAC movie, Royal Christmas Ball, is set to debut on the network in 2023 as part of their Christmas series.  According to Deadline, “In Royal Christmas Ball, Chelsea Shaw, a Chicago-based dance instructor whose adoptive parents have long since passed, travels to the small European country of Havenshire over Christmas break in search of her heritage… and maybe even family. Discovering that the only way to get access to information she needs on her quest is via the royal family, she accepts an offer to teach a very reluctant Prince a special Waltz for the traditional Royal Christmas Ball. By the end of this Christmas adventure, Chelsea finds love, answers to her deepest questions, and yes, family.”

Despite switching networks, and catching a lot of heat for it, McKellar stands by her decision AND her previous work at Hallmark Channel.  In a recent interview with Insider Magazine, McKellar explained, “I’ve done 16 movies for the Hallmark Channel and I loved my time there. In this network I get a much more hands-on role with executive producing, and it’s really exciting to sign this multi-picture deal with them and be creating movies.”
