Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” event continues with the premiere of “A Christmas Carousel,” starring Rachel Boston and Neal Bledsoe.

Hallmark fans definitely recognize the two stars, with Bledsoe previously appearing in Hallmark’s “Coming Home for Christmas,” and Boston starring in several titles for the network. Her previous credits include “Ice Sculpture Christmas,” “Stop the Wedding,” “A Rose for Christmas,” “The Last Bridesmaid” and “Check Inn to Christmas,” as well as the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries titles “Christmas in Angel Falls” and “A Gift of Miracles.” She’s also lent her holiday movie talents to Lifetime, starring in their title, “Christmas in Tennessee” as well.

So what will happen when these two team up for their first title together?

“Known for their skill at restoring carousels, Lila (Boston) and her father Roy (Stuart Hughes) are hired by the royal family of Ancadia to return their Carousel to its original luster as a Christmas present for Prince Whitaker’s (Bledsoe) niece,” a synopsis reads. “Although Lila’s first impression of the Prince—or Whit, as he prefers to be called—isn't the best, she soon sees a different side to him.”

Quickly, the two will begin to realize how much they mean to one another, as well as how they can help one another figure out exactly what they want from their lives.

“Whit is overseeing the restoration project and as he and Lila work together they connect over his affinity for the arts,” the synopsis says. “The more time they spend with each other the closer they become and feelings begin to develop. Lila and Whit also help each other realize what path in life their hearts want them to take.”

However, as a royal, Whit does have a duty—one that could threaten everything, unless a little magic comes into play.

“When Lila believes Whit’s royal duty is leading him to announce his engagement to someone from nobility at the Christmas Gala, she suddenly decides to return home,” the synopsis reads. “But a wish made on the carousel’s wishing horse may prove to be the Christmas magic needed to bring two hearts together.”

“A Christmas Carousel” premieres Saturday, Dec. 19 at 8 p.m. EST on Hallmark Channel.
