HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2016/11/13 – “My grandma, she loves Hallmark Movies,” says Christmas Cookies star Jill Wagner. “She’s 89. I called my manager and they sent her three scripts She read them, I didn’t even read them. She read them. She is my agent. She did a great job. Once I got on set I was like, what is this movie about? Of course, I fall in love.”
Jill Wagner is Christmas Cookies’ Hannah Harper, a New York executive at National Foods so bent on advancing her career that she’s lost her Christmas spirit. National Foods is buying Aunt Sally’s Cookie Company and sends Hannah to broker the deal.
Jake Carter is Wes Brown, a former attorney who inherited his Aunt Sally’s struggling Christmas cookie business. Hannah tells Jake selling is in his best interest. He’s concerned that his employees will lose their jobs, devasting the town’s economy. The small town’s charm reminds Hannah of her childhood Christmas memories. Christmas and Jake’s charms motivate Hannah to find a way to save the town.
