San Francisco 49ers Fan Julie Sherman Wolfe Wrote The Script

Hallmark fan-favorite writer Julie Sherman Wolfe wrote the script for this football-themed Christmas movie. However, Julie is a lifelong San Francisco 49ers fan. This is a movie featuring the Kansas City Chiefs. Although the 49ers lost to the Chiefs in the most recent Super Bowl, she shared on Instagram that she has made peace with everything.

The secret is out! That’s right, this lifelong, diehard @49ers Faithful wrote a @hallmarkchannel Christmas movie featuring…the Kansas City Chiefs. Oh, the irony!

It’s going to be a really cute movie, and the truth is, after my deep dive into all things K.C., I have a lot of respect for the @chiefs organization and their fans. So that makes me *slightly* better about the Super Bowl. BUT ONLY SLIGHTLY. #fttb

In addition, the magnificent Keith Nielsen is the costumer. Fans of A Biltmore Christmas, and A Merry Scottish Christmas are familiar with his gorgeous creations. Therefore, viewers should expect some really special looks.

Hallmark fans, you have been following Taylor and Travis. Are you ready to watch this holiday football romance? Hallmark will announce the premiere date of Holiday Touchdown: A Chiefs Romance later this year.
