Steve to star in Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Original Film “The Christmas Cottage” airing December 9th!

Steve will be staring as Ean in the new original Hallmark film “The Christmas Cottage” which is based off the novel by author Samantha Chase. The movie premieres Sunday, December 9th at 9PM on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel.

You can find the official promotional photos and production stills from the film in the gallery now along with the official press release with the film’s synopsis below!

Merritt Patterson (“The Royals,” “A Royal Winter”) and Steve Lund (“Reign,” “The Art of Us”) star in “The Christmas Cottage,” a new original premiering Sunday, December 9 (9 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Part of the network’s popular, annual “Most Wonderful Movies of Christmas” programming event, Brittney Wilson (“Gap Year”) and Victor Zinck (“Motive”) also star.

Taking a rare break from her career designing modern buildings, Lacey (Patterson) travels to her friend Ava’s (Wilson) Christmas Eve wedding. Though her business partner and boyfriend Roger (Zinck) is concerned about her taking time off right before an important sales pitch, Lacey promises to work in between her maid of honor duties. While at the wedding events, Lacey reconnects with her former flame, Ean (Lund). The two decorate the cottage where the newlyweds will spend their honeymoon – a cottage said to bring true love to anyone who stays there – and feel their chemistry return. When Ean confesses his feelings for Lacey, though, she is unable to acknowledge her own. Heartbroken, Ean takes a job in Finland, and plans to leave Christmas day. As Christmas approaches, Lacey sees the sharp contrast between Ean’s family values and Roger’s sole focus on work, and must decide if the professional goals she shares with Roger or the connection and history she shares with Ean are more important in a lasting relationship.

“The Christmas Cottage” is a Cabin Productions Inc. production. Paul A. Kaufman, Joey
Plager, Sean Williamson and Jamie Goehring are the executive producers. John MacCarthy is the
producer. Paul A. Kaufman directed from a script by Claudia Grazioso.

Taylor Cole and Steve Lund Star in Hallmark Channel’s ‘THE ART OF US’, Premiering 5/20

Taylor Cole (“The Originals,” “Christmas at Homestead”) and Steve Lund (“Schitt’s Creek,” “Reign”) star in Hallmark Channel’s THE ART OF US, a new original movie premiering Saturday, May 20 (9 p.m. ET/PT). The film also has a prominent story arc for “Vincent the Dog” and other adorable canines, part of Crown Media Family Networks’ (home of Hallmark CHANNEL and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries) global pet initiative and the company’s steadfast commitment to end pet homelessness by using entertainment to show the joys pets bring to our lives every day. Crown Media Family Networks produces pet-centric original movies and specials (“Kitten Bowl,” “Meow Madness,” “Hero Dog Awards”) to create awareness for the beautiful animals at local shelters waiting to find a forever home.

“The Art of Us” is a modern retelling of “My Fair Lady.” Dr. Harper Higgins (Cole) is determined to land a tenured position at Boston College, and she is counting on curating a big art gallery at the university to do so. But when Higgins loses her showcase artist and can find no one else, she turns to her recently hired dog walker Tom Stone (Lund) who, unbeknownst to anyone, is a very skilled painter. Transforming Tom into a credible, respected artist is going to take work, but Dr. Higgins feels up to the challenge. The only complication comes when professor and artist fall for each other during the charade and risk being outed by a competing professor.

“We are fortunate to continue developing innovative content while simultaneously partnering with tremendously talented actors such as Taylor Cole and Steve Lund,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Publicity.

“Taylor Cole and Steve Lund radiate the screen and we have no doubt they will create a masterpiece together with ‘The Art of Us,'” Vicary concluded.

“The Art of Us” is an Art of Us Films Inc production. Howard Braunstein and Sydell Albert are executive producers. Christian Bruyere is producer. Kristoffer Tabori directs from the teleplay by Karen Berger, based on the book by Teri Wilson.
