Hallmark Channel Original Movie Christmas Under Wraps premieres on Saturday, November 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The film, which stars Candace Cameron Bure (Full House), three-time Emmy nominee Brian Doyle-Murray (The Middle), David O’Donnell (12 Wishes of Christmas) and Robert Pine (The Bold and the Beautiful), follows a determined surgeon who moves to a remote Alaskan town and soon discovers the friendly small village has a big holiday secret.

Dr. Lauren Brunell (Bure) has her whole life planned out. As a third year surgery resident, she is counting on being accepted into a prestigious hospital fellowship to follow in the footsteps of her supportive father, Henry (Pine). But when those plans quickly fall apart, and Lauren is put on the wait list, she must take the only other opening available: a head doctor position in the small, remote town of Garland, Alaska. Convincing herself it is only temporary, Lauren moves to Garland where she is immediately charmed by Andy (O’Donnell), a handsome local who soon starts to show her the importance of living in the moment and enjoying her unexpected adventure.

As Lauren excels as Garland's trusted doctor, she warms up to the friendly town, and even starts falling for Andy. But Andy's father, Frank (Doyle-Murray), is hiding something from her in his top-secret shipping warehouse. From his busy holiday workload, to his reindeer barn, to his weakness for cookies, it seems Frank's family business has a lot in common with the North Pole. Just as Lauren decides to get to the bottom of her suspicions, she receives news that will force her to make a choice between the life she's always planned and the love she never expected to find, while knowing for certain that the Christmas season will never be the same.
