WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – Hallmark Channel fans, rejoice! We now know when a locally-shot holiday movie will be released.
According to a news release, “USS Christmas” will premiere Saturday, Nov. 28 at 9 p.m. on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as part of the channel’s “Miracles of Christmas” — an event similar to the flagship channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” where new holiday movies are debuted.
The made-for-television movie stars Jen Lilley, Trevor Donovan, and Barbara Niven.
A synopsis of the movie states, “Maddie (Lilley) a reporter for a Norfolk newspaper, embarks on a Tiger Cruise during Christmastime where she meets a handsome naval officer (Donovan) and stumbles upon a mystery in the ship’s archive room.”
Crews have been filming in and around Wilmington for over two weeks, and shot some scenes along the downtown Riverwalk on Wednesday.
