Brady, story by Greg McGoon and composed by Paul Campbell, has to do with a a man [Hynes] who persuades his ex-girlfriend [Lenz] to impersonate a couple for Christmas.

“I love the fact that [the Countdown To Christmas] creates an event, an anticipation, an atmosphere that is warm leading into the holidays,” Hynes informed CNN in a current interview.

Lenz included, “I love that you can always count on, pardon the pun, there being a new Chrismtas story every week. Multiple times a week and I love the build up of the anticipation for the holiday season. It wouldn’t be Christmas without Hallmark.”
