Lauren Holly & Bruce Boxleitner Join Great American Family Holiday Movie Opposite Jill Wagner, Jesse Hutch

EXCLUSIVE: Lauren Holly and Bruce Boxleitner are the latest actors to join the holiday movie repertory at Great American Family.

The duo will co-star in Aurora Christmas opposite network mainstays Jill Wagner and Jesse Hutch. The movie follows Erin (Wagner), who joins her dad Doug (Boxleitner) for a Christmas in the family’s former hometown of Aurora on a mission that is part business and major bucket list item for Erin to see the Aurora Borealis light up the Northern sky. Realtor Lori (Holly) and family friend and local tour guide Trevor (Hutch) create a Christmas inspired at every turn by faith, love, and hope, so much so that Christmas bells hung over decades in a forest grove ring an unbroken song, a harbinger of miracles to come.

“As we approach year four of our Great American Christmas franchise, we are proud of the family of actors we have assembled that are at the top of every viewer’s list of favorites. This high quality talent is just one of the elements that distinguishes Great American Family from other networks and content providers who are simply making movies that are set during the Christmas season,” said Bill Abbott, President & CEO, Great American Media. “Our storytelling is filled with characters who revere family, faith and country and their journeys establish a foundation of hope and joy for so many viewers throughout the Christmas season.”

Aurora Christmas is executive produced by Brad Krevoy, Jill Wagner, Susie Belzberg Krevoy, and Micheline Blais. David Anselmo produces. Kelly Martin is supervising producer. It is written by Amyn Kaderali with revisions by Ernie Barbarash.
