Hallmark Channel to film 'The Christmas Spirit' movie in Cincinnati

Movie to feature Nicollette Sheridan

CINCINNATI -- A new Hallmark Channel movie featuring a former “Desperate Housewife” will be filmed in Cincinnati.

Actress Nicollette Sheridan will star in “The Christmas Spirit.”

The movie will premier on Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. on the Hallmark Channel.

The film will shot in Lebanon and other Cincinnati suburbs starting Monday.

Officials said the movie also feature Olympia Dukakis and Bart Johnson.

According to a Hallmark release, “The Christmas Spirit” is about:

“A distinguished journalist, Charlotte Hart, is spending time with her family over the holidays when a real estate developer approaches their small town with quite an offer.

Skeptical and looking for the real scoop, Charlotte drives to see the real estate head honcho to question him. While she's en route, she gets into a terrible car accident and wakes up in the hospital only to realize that her body is in a coma, but her spirit is very much awake.

She meets another spirit, who just happens to be the greedy developer. It turns out that he was on the other end of the accident, and he too is in a coma. With only a few days left before the town votes on the development, Charlotte must try to change the minds of the developer and the town, but that is no easy task when no one can see or hear her.”

The film was written and will be directed by Jack Angelo.
