It's not even officially summer yet, but the Christmas movie news is already coming in fast. Netflix has promised a sequel to A Christmas Prince, and Kellie Pickler is starring in a holiday movie that's being filmed at Graceland. The Hallmark Channel even announced that they will air a record 34 new Christmas movies this year. And now, Lifetime just shared the details of another feel-good holiday flick.
As Entertainment Weekly reports, the new film is called The Christmas Contract, and it features some familiar faces. The cast includes One Tree Hill alums Danneel Ackles, Hilarie Burton, Robert Buckley, Antwon Tanner, and Tyler Hilton, who makes a musical appearance. Judging by their social media posts, the cast is thrilled to get back together.

The film is written by Cassie Doyle and directed by Monika Mitchell. It follows web designer Jolie, played by Hilarie, as she returns home to Louisiana for the first time since a breakup with her boyfriend, Foster (Hunter Burke).
But when Jolie finds out that her ex is bringing home a new girlfriend, her best friend Naomi (Danneel) suggests that Jolie bring home Jack (Robert), Naomi's brother. Jolie isn't sure about the plan, so Naomi, a lawyer, creates a Christmas contract so they both get something out of the deal. Jack agrees to be a buffer for Jolie and her ex if Jolie helps design him a website to sell his upcoming novel.
And, as with most romantic comedies set during the holidays, there's a twist! Lifetime teases, "Unbeknownst to them, the Christmas contract proves to be so much more than what they signed up for." We're placing our bets now: There's sure to be a love connection.
