Hallmark Channel Original Movie Best Christmas Party Ever premieres on Saturday, December 13 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The film stars Torrey DeVitto (Pretty Little Liars) and Steve Lund (Bitten), Linda Thorson (The Avengers) and Harmon Walsh (Saving Hope).

With Christmas approaching, young party planner Jennie Stanton (DeVitto) learns that her boss, Petra (Thorson), will be retiring after Christmas and hopes she will be left in charge of Petra's Parties, New York's premiere event planning service. Jennie's hopes fade when Petra's charming and handsome nephew, Nick (Lund), arrives on the scene and Petra announces that he will take over the business. To make matters worse, Jennie and Nick do not get along. When an opportunity to plan a toy store's Christmas Eve party arises, Jennie runs with it, arranging a warm and traditional affair in the same vein as the Christmas parties that inspired her as a child.

Soon, Todd Perry (Walsh), an executive for a powerful corporation that acquired the toy store, rejects Jennie's traditional party plans, demanding an exclusive, high-end, corporate event and threatening legal action if she doesn’t comply. Nick rallies to Jennie’s support, encouraging her to continue planning the party in the true spirit of Christmas. Before long, feelings begin to develop between Jennie and Nick. As Christmas Eve gets closer, Jennie chooses to follow her heart, moving forward with her party plans and finding true love in time for Christmas.
