What Is Hallmark’s If I Only Had Christmas About?
According to the EW, Darcy Gale (Bure) is an optimistic and cheer publicist from Kansas City. She heads off to the Emerald Educational Trust for her dream job. Darcy is headed off to work for Vice President, Glen Goodman (Christie), who is a bit of a grumpster.
Dorothy has to use all of her positivity to get the rest of the team to “find the know-how, courage and heart” to help a charitable organization that is in deep trouble.
As they spend more time together, Darcy and Glen find commonality. Could this be love? Not so fast! There is a twist. At the Christmas gala, Glen shares a revelation that could end any sort lasting romance.
Expect a black and white intro, some gorgeous “ruby slippers” and Candace Cameron Bure dancing across your Christmas screen.
Warren Christie Starred In Fan Favorite Hallmark Christmas Classic
Warren Christie may look particularly familiar to Hallmark Christmas movie fans because he starred in a Christmas classic 12 years ago. He starred alongside Brooke Burns and Henry Winkler in The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year. This is considered a long-time, fan favorite.
Hopefully, Hallmark can snag Warren Christie for an more movies. But, he may be suited up for something else in the near future.
The Northern-Ireland born Canadian has recently appeared as Batman in Batwoman. According to CBR, on the Batwoman Season 1 finale, Christie actually appeared as Bruce Wayne. We know that is just a degree and a cape away from the Batman. Most of all, he is now part of the Arrowverse!
We don’t know if he will be appearing in Season 2 in early 2021, but CW fans expect to see him in the future.
