HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2016/11/12 – “She loses her Christmas spirit,” says Every Christmas Has a Story star Colin Ferguson, who is a producer of a morning TV news show trying to contain a hot mike faux pas commited by the host. “I’m the producer on the show. Lori Loughlin is the star of the show. On camera she actually admits that she’s lost her Christmas spirit. So there’s a huge fan backlash. People say we need changes, so she and I get sent to Hollyvale to find her Christmas spirit.”
Colin Ferguson is Jack Brewster, the producer of a morning news talk show in Los Angeles. Lori Loughlin is Kate Harper, the host of News Today Network’s Morning Show with Kate Harper. Thinking it’s a private moment, Kate admits she doesn’t like Christmas. However, she has a hot mike and everyone has heard her. The show’s fans are outraged and the network is not happy.
To win back viewers, the network sends her to Hollyvale, North Dakota, “the biggest little Christmas town” known for their big Christmas celebration. Rekindling her Christmas spirit restarts Kate’s romantic interest in Jack, who was her boyfriend in college.
“I was losing my Christmas spirit a bit and then had my son,” says Ferguson. “I have a three year old. Having a kids brings it all back. It’s amazing.”
“I was a really shy kid,” says Ferguson. “I couldn’t even speak in class. I would just sort of melt. I was a guess in college I started improvising for money. It’s what drove me. It completely changed my life. I was a really shy kid and sort of what goes with that is I didn’t have a spine so a buddy of mine said we’re going to improvise on Saturday and I said, no, no, no. I’m ok. And he said no we’re going. And I said ok. So we went. At the end of the class they said you’re joining the troop and we perform on the weekends and we’ll pay you fifty bucks.”
