The Radio City Rockettes will come to Hallmark in "A Holiday Spectacular," a new film premiering on Sunday, November 27. The film, which was shot on location in upstate New York and at Radio City Music Hall also stars Derek Klena, Ginna Claire Mason, and Eve Plumb.

The film is set in 1958 when a Philadelphia heiress named Maggie (Mason) puts her high-society wedding plans, to a man she doesn't love, on hold in order to sneak up to New York City and make her secret dream come true: dancing live on stage in the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall.

Jeremy Jordan will star alongside Lisa Loeb and Yael Grobglas in "Hanukkah on Rye," premiering on Sunday, December 18.
