    Season 5, Episode 5 - A Biltmore Christmas

    It's finally here! The Thanksgiving long weekend AND of course, A Biltmore Christmas. Mary and Sarah sit down to chat through the most anticipated Hallmark Christmas movie ever. Did it live up to expectations? What's the story of Biltmore anyway? How should we #redpenrewrite it? Have a listen....but as a preview #morepolaha !! Bring on the movie within a movie!!

    Lucy Hardgrove (Joy Lenz) is a screenwriter who lands the job of a lifetime when she’s hired to pen the script for a remake of the beloved holiday movie, His Merry Wife! First filmed in 1947 at beautiful, historic Biltmore House, it has long been considered a Christmas classic. When the head of the studio isn’t satisfied with the ending Lucy wrote because it deviates from the original’s feel-good conclusion, he sends Lucy to Biltmore Estate for research and inspiration. While there, she unwittingly discovers the ability to travel to the 1947 set of His Merry Wife! through the help of an hourglass. After shaking off the initial shock of this turn of events, Lucy embraces this as her chance to uncover the truth about the movie’s original ending. While on set, she and Jack Huston (Kristoffer Polaha), one of the film’s stars, spend time together and become close. But her sudden appearance has set off a chain of events that put the production in jeopardy. Before she can return to the present, Lucy must make things right or threaten to alter the future forever. Starring Bethany Joy Lenz and Kristoffer Polaha.

This is a fun and funny podcast with good banter between the hosts. I do not even watch hallmark movies and I found it enjoyable!
