Even though Labor Day hasn’t even passed, fans of Hallmark Channel are probably already anticipating the network’s “Countdown to Christmas” event in 2022. The big event begins in October 2022, but Hallmark has not yet made available the full slate of films. A new film starring the Radio City Rockettes and a holiday romance that was filmed on location in London are just two of the holiday-related announcements made by the network.
What is currently known about Hallmark’s “Countdown to Christmas” 2022 is listed below.
‘Jolly Good Christmas’ was filmed in London
Jolly Good Christmas is a new holiday romance starring Will Kemp and Reshma Shetty that was shot in London. Kemp portrays David, an architect who just relocated to England in search of employment. He runs into Anji (Shetty), a professional shopper who is unimpressed with his gift selection, while looking for the ideal present for his girlfriend. When they cross paths again, he decides to hire her, and the two end up embarking on a London adventure.
The Radio City Rockettes are featured in “A Holiday Spectacular.”
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is a seasonal institution in New York. The next best thing, if you can’t make it to Manhattan to see the show live, might be to watch Hallmark’s A Holiday Spectacular. In the 1958 film, Maggie (Ginna Claire Mason), an heiress, decides to pursue her dream of dancing with the Rockettes instead of her high society wedding plans. Maggie is given a role in the program. But when she starts to fall for a young Navy photographer (Derek Klena), she quickly finds herself torn between two worlds.
Ann-Margret, an Oscar nominee, and Eve Plumb, a Brady Bunch star, also appear in A Holiday Spectacular. The Rockettes perform in the movie, which was filmed at Radio City Music Hall. Sometime in November 2022, it will air.

He has made it clear that he wants to move on to other kinds of projects.
Macfarlane recently told the Los Angeles Times, “They’ve been very good to me, but I think I’ve told my story with those folks for now. How many firefighters can I play, I mean?
