J.T. HODGES STARS IN HALLMARK CHANNEL'S ORIGINAL HOLIDAY MOVIE “FINDING CHRISTMAS” SUNDAY, DECEMBER 15 / TO RELEASE HOLIDAY CLASSIC “JOY TO THE WORLD” VIA ITUNES ON NOV 5.
Country Music star JT Hodges will star in a new made-for-television holiday movie. The sultry country music artist who has already caught the eye of Music City Nashville, award-winning producers, the ACM’s and People Magazine will debut his acting skills in the Hallmark Channel Original Holiday movie, “Finding Christmas” which premieres on the network on Sunday, December 15, 2013 at 8pm EST. In conjunction with the network television movie, JT will also release a modern country take on the classic holiday song “Joy to the World” on Tuesday, November 5, 2013 via iTunes. The movie is part of Hallmark Channel’s popular “Countdown to Christmas” programming campaign.
Joining JT Hodges in the cast are Tricia Helfer (“Battlestar Galactica” “The Firm”), Mark Lutz (“Ghost Whisperer”) and Cristina Rosato (“Perfect Plan”). “Finding Christmas” is about single mother Ryan (played by Helfer) who has just given up on dating after her divorce, happily accepting her young son as the most important man in her life. That all changes when Ryan’s brother Owen (played by Hodges), also feeling unlucky in love after a bad breakup, swaps his home in their small North Carolina town with New York City adman Sean (played by Lutz). Ryan feels an instant spark with her new neighbor, but Sean, who signed up for the temporary home swap after a proposal gone wrong, is out of his comfort zone in his new rural surroundings. He quickly discovers the magic involved with taking chances and starts opening up to romantic possibilities around free-spirited Ryan.
In “Finding Christmas,” JT Hodges performs the holiday song “Joy to the World” when he goes to an open-mic night at a New York City Club with his new love interest, Mina. Knowing Owen plays around his home town in North Carolina, Mina encourages him to play because of the people who will be attending from the radio networks.
“Joy to the World,” performed by JT Hodges will be available just in time for the holidays on November 5th via iTunes.
