Lori Loughlin in Blessings of Christmas on Great American Family
Great American Family announced on Monday that Blessings of Christmas will premiere are part of its Great American Christmas programming event. The event starts on October 21 and according to Deadline, a new Christmas movie will debut each Saturday and Sunday. Meanwhile, former Hallmark star Lori Loughlin is set to star opposite James Tupper (Big Little Lies, Revenge).
In Blessings of Christmas, Loughlin plays the renowned TV star Mandy Gilmore, who is saying goodbye to her hit culinary series, A World of Food, so she can travel the globe and dine in all 142 Michelin-star restaurants.
However, before jetting off to Paris, Mandy heads to Milwaukee with the deed to her deceased aunt’s food pantry, Angel’s Fare. The business had recently been purchased by business owner, Adam Carraway (Tupper). While it is supposed to be a simple transaction, pantry volunteer Otto Nessen (Jesse Hutch, Batwoman, Project Blue Book) reminds everyone that Aunt Susie’s love of cooking was actually a love of feeding. This inspires one more holiday feast for those who needed it most.
