Why Hallmark Viewers Will Enjoy ‘Christmas Tree Lane’

October 23, 2020 No Comments

The Christmas season is about to begin. This is, at least true in TVland, and so with it, Finding Wonderland begins all of the coverage of said movies. This weekend, one of the new movies to appear on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries is Alicia Witt’s Christmas Tree Lane.

TV NEWS | The Festive New 2020 Lifetime Christmas Movie Schedule

Let’s talk a little bit about why avid Hallmark fans might enjoy Christmas Tree Lane, and some of the “fun facts” about this film. But first, here are some story details.

THE STORY | No longer a performer, Meg (played by Alicia Witt) is now happiest teaching students and helping them to hone their skills. She also runs the music store on Christmas Tree Lane, which her family started generations ago. Along with her fellow neighboring business owner, Meg champions their shopping center. Only just before Christmas, they learn they’re being evicted to make way for a high rise development.

Together, along with Christmas Tree Lane business owners, and her new friend, Nate (played by Andrew Walker), Meg works to find a way to save their piece of Christmas joy.

FUN FACTS | This story is one star Alicia Witt wrote (and acts as producer for); and has been developing with Hallmark now for, according to the writer herself, four years now.

Furthermore, in addition to being part of the behind-the-scenes process, Witt also performs her own original music. This is something that works well for the story.

Co-star Andrew Walker also says, of working with Alicia, he feels that “we improvised a lot,” which is always something fun to learn. Then to try and pull out those moments that are less of a rehearsal, and more of the moment.

Unlike most of the movies from this network, this one films in Utah.

WHAT I LIKE | The musical aspect of the story is sweet, and as previously said, because this has music by Witt, there’s more of a personal touch.

It’s always fun to see Andrew Walker again, an actor who has been in many a Hallmark film.

IN CONCLUSION | I don’t love everything about this film, but I know I’ll be in the minority here. In the end, it’s sweet as any of the Christmas movies (of the past) are, and that’s really what Christmas movies viewers look forward to.
