Hallmark star Ryan Peavey and The Flash’s Jessica Parker Kennedy star in upcoming Hallmark Christmas movie Under The Christmas Sky.
Kat (Kennedy) was an astronaut on the rise until a car accident left her with a blind spot, halting her promising career. With Christmas being her favorite holiday, her parents and brother Andy (Andrew Bushell, “The Spencer Sisters”) try to lift her spirits, filling her time with cookie making, tree decorating and holiday shopping, but Kat is still missing her driving spark.
David Likes To Be In Control
When Andy learns of an exhibit at the local planetarium he immediately thinks of Kat, and with a little nudging, she agrees to consult. Kat is paired up with curator David (Paevey), who isn’t thrilled to have outside “help.” When tasked with incorporating community involvement and Christmas into their planning, their different approaches – and personalities – cause them to clash. Eventually, Kat and David find some common ground amid the magic of Christmas and their shared love of space, and their holiday exhibit opens as a resounding success.
Riding the wave of their big win, and not wanting to part ways just yet. David and Kat decide to create an additional event – a Santa tracking party on Christmas Eve. As their time working together comes to a close, and Kat is presented with a job opportunity and a fresh start out of state, their new connection and growing feelings for one another are put to the test as they try to decide just what the future could hold. But, a little Christmas spirit will help these two find their way to happiness on Christmas day.
