HGTV and Food Network have partnered to release four exclusive Christmas movies this year, featuring familiar faces from the industry.

    HGTV’s Christmas Movies

    HGTV’s Christmas movies are all about home improvement and decoration. These will be a treat for those who love to watch beautiful spaces come alive, along with an added romantic twist.

    "Stella the Sledgehammer"

    "For the past six years, interior designer Stella (Jessica Szohr) and contractor Pablo (Marco Grazzini) have charmed homeowners and viewers alike as co-hosts of the renovation show, ‘Stella the Sledgehammer.’ After the owners of the home slated for their upcoming holiday episode pull out, Pablo and the team convince Stella to be their next client in hopes of saving the episode and the show itself. This has a trepidatious Stella not only agreeing to renovate her family’s Victorian home with Pablo, but also moving her impending nuptials to fianc√© Jack (Mykee Selkin) up several months in a bid to make this their biggest and best episode yet. As Stella and Pablo labor together more closely than ever before to bring her family’s beloved home back from a state of disrepair in time for the Christmas Eve ceremony, Stella confides in her mentor Freddy (Hilary Farr) about the complicated and unexplored feelings that could jeopardize everything."

    "Christmas in Tune"

    "Katie Stevens plays Melissa Norwood, an ambitious Atlanta property stager who teams up with her old high school crush, David Phelps (Victor Rasuk), to sell her newly married mom’s home in their small Georgia hometown. The place is cozy but hasn’t been updated in decades, so the two join up to renovate the place before a couple of wealthy potential buyers are due to see the house on Christmas Eve. Melissa would love to spend a portion of her budget on a few custom projects created by a unique couple, Henry and Sarah Wright (Ben and Erin Napier), who are gifted at small-town home restoration and appreciate the legacy of a family home. Henry is a master woodworker and custom furniture builder, and Sarah is an artist with an expertise in color and transformative design choices. As Christmas approaches and the tensions grow, so does a romantic relationship between Melissa and David, but the fact that Melissa intends to return to Atlanta and start her own business with the cash she will get from the property sale, while David has no intention of leaving his hometown, could be a deal breaker for their new relationship."

    Food Network’s Christmas Movies

    Food Network’s movies are centered on delicious culinary themes, adding a scrumptious touch to the holiday season. Here are the movies that Food Network has in store for all the foodies out there.

    "Gingerbread Miracle"

    "Tiya Sircar plays Hazel Stanley, an architect who, after a devastating workplace development, visits her father Ted (Sugith Varughese) in her suburban Chicago hometown. There, she discovers that the family bakery is worse off than she imagined, having been on the decline since the passing of her mother. To add insult to injury, her former best friend Shelby (Kyana Teresa) has opened a trendy new bake shop across the street. When all seems lost, she gets the idea to enter a gingerbread house competition led by homegrown food celebrity Mark Clemmons (Duff Goldman) offering a $100k prize. While working on her magnificent cookie edifice, a romance starts to bloom with a local contractor James Meadows (Marc Bendavid), who, along with his daughter, has been helping her father while trying to fix up the bakery in his spare time. A series of frustrations and misunderstandings threaten to tear them apart, but will the magic of the holiday lead everyone to have a Merry Christmas?"

    "The Holiday Fix Up"

    "Abby Richmond (Vanessa Marano) has inherited Haven Restaurant and Inn in Vermont from her parents. Still, running both the restaurant and the inn is a continuous 24/7 commitment, leaving no time for Abby to have a personal life. Her best hope is to secure an investment from restaurant mogul Alexandra Grantham (Kathy Maloney), who would provide much-needed resources and guidance. But to do so, she’ll have to navigate rough waters after top food critic, Tom Kingsley (Bobby Flay), visits Haven and gives Alexandra his menu feedback. Hot shot chef Preston Weaver (Alex Mallari Jr.) is brought in by Alexandra to ‘shake up’ the holiday menu after Abby unexpectedly loses her longtime chef. Unfortunately, the menu was curated by Abby’s late father, and she’s having a tough time letting go of it. Despite their undeniable chemistry, will they be able to put aside their differences in time for Alexandra and Tom’s Christmas Eve dinner visit, which will determine whether she invests in Haven or not?"
