In the TV movie Northpole: Open For Christmas, single businesswoman Mackenzie Reed inherits her aunt’s rundown inn, which was once a beautiful place. In order to sell it at a good price, Mackenzie needs to renovate and fast if she wants to move the property before Christmas. At the inn Mackenzie meets the inn’s handsome handyman Ian (Dermot Mulroney). While busy at work with Ian, Mackenzie gets a visit from a magical elf named Clementine (Bailee Madison), who Santa sends to the inn to help Mackenzie “rediscover the joy of Christmas.” It works!
Mackenzie is portrayed by Lori Loughlin. She’s best known for his roles on Full House (Rebecca Donaldson Katsopolis), 90210 (Debbie Wilson), Summerland (Ava Gregory), which Loughlin co-created and produced, and soap opera The Edge of Night (Loughlin was 15 when cast as Jody). Fun fact: Loughlin is married to fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, the creator of the Mossimo clothing line. Northpole: Open For Christmas will premiere on Hallmark Channel on November 21 at 8pm.
