Christmas Comes Early With Mariah Carey's 'A Christmas Melody'
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas – at least on the Hallmark Channel.
The cable channel owned by the greeting card company began celebrating Christmas on Oct. 29 – the Saturday before Halloween – with repeats of its original holiday movies.
"A Christmas Melody," the Mariah Carey movie filmed last year in Cincinnati and Wyoming, will repeat six times, starting Sunday Nov. 6.
Here are the dates:
Sunday, Nov. 6 -- 6 p.m.
Thursday, Nov. 10 -- 10 p.m.
Tuesday, Nov. 29-- 4 p.m.
Wednesday, Dec. 7-- 8 a.m.
Friday, Dec. 16 -- Midnight
Christmas Eve, Saturday, Dec. 24 -- Noon.
The pop star directed and appeared in the film as a diva PTA mom organizing a grade-school holiday pageant where a talented child (Fina Strazza) sings "Oh Santa" (at Mount Lookout's Kilgour Elementary School with 10 young Cincinnati area students trained and choreographed by Lea and Drew Lachey.
Lacy Chabert ("Mean Girls," "Party of Five") plays the girl's mother; Kathy Najimy ("Veep," "Sister Act") plays the girl's Aunt Sarah who operates a café in Wyoming; and Brennan Elliott stars as the school music teacher.
