‘Christmas in Evergreen’ Preview
Hallmark’s official synopsis for Christmas in Evergreen: Bells Are Ringing reads: “As Michelle’s wedding approaches, Hannah steps up to help finish the launch of the new Evergreen museum while questioning her relationship and future with Elliot. Starring Holly Robinson Peete, Colin Lawrence, Rukiya Bernard, Antonio Cayonne, Ashley Williams and Barbara Niven.”
Jacquelyn Renner is the executive producer and Charles Cooper is the movie’s producer. Linda-Lisa Hayter directed the movie, and the script was written by Zac Hug and Shari Sharpe.
Hallmark’s official description in its press release for the movie reads: “As we return to Evergreen for the fourth installment, wedding preparations are underway for beloved mayor Michelle (Peete) and her fiancé Thomas (Lawrence). With Thomas out of town for work and only able to plan long distance, Michelle must juggle her priorities and decides to hire her friend, and sister-in-law-to-be, Hannah (Bernard) to take over responsibilities on Evergreen’s soon to launch Christmas Museum. Michelle must also process an unexpected bit of family news when her sister Sonya (Marci T. House, ‘Picture Perfect Mysteries’) comes to town for the festivities. One of Evergreen’s most dependable residents, known for helping out anyone who asks, Hannah is thrilled when she’s given the opportunity to take over the museum and carve out a project of her own. The project isn’t without its challenges and when things don’t quite turn out as planned, the town of Evergreen shows there is more than one way to be there for each other at Christmas.”
Rukiya Bernard announced in mid-October that she and Antonio Cayonne will be portraying the leads this year. This is Bernard’s first lead role in a Hallmark movie.
Bernard wrote on Instagram:
I’m a lead in a @hallmarkchannel Christmas movie!!! I wanted to say something profound about reaching this point in my career, but words escaped me. So now, here we go: For years I’ve had the support of many #hallmarkies and fans wondering when I’d get my turn to lead a love story. As a dark skin Black actress who’s rocked braids or natural hair her whole career, rarely seeing other people who look like me on screen, I can’t stress how important #representationmatters when you want your dreams to come true. In paying it forward, I hope my simply being in this movie will be one small nudge to help some young up and coming actress who looks like me believe that it’s possible for her too. And if she/he/they don’t see themselves in me maybe they’ll see themselves in one of the 5 other BIPOC characters featured in this diverse and inclusive #Christmas story. I’d be remiss to not say, @hollyrpeete you’ve been this inspiration of possibility for me well before we met four years ago on #CIE1 To share the screen has been a dream come true. @antoniocayonne LET’S GET THIS!!! #ChristmasInEvergreen 4 day 1 in the can. #loveisintheair
Cayonne also wrote about how excited he was to have a lead role. He wrote: “I booked a Lead Role. I booked a Lead! On Tuesday, we start shooting Christmas in Evergreen 4 and for the first time I am the main storyline. As my friend put it yesterday, I’ve leveled up. And younger me needs to hear that this is possible, that hard work pays off, and that we belong. The lead story in a @hallmarkchannel movie that features 2 BIPOC actors in a diverse town set in anywhere USA. That’s HUGE! Representation Matters… This is beyond exciting. This is empowering. This is game changing for my belief system.”
