Barry Watson and Melissa Joan Hart star in “A Very Nutty Christmas.” Lifetime

Four years after starring in Lifetime’s “Santa Con” together, Melissa Joan Hart and Barry Watson reunite for another holiday movie on the network, “A Very Nutty Christmas.”

The new flick premieres Friday night during the network’s It’s A Wonderful Lifetime programming event. While neither WB alum is a stranger to the world of TV movies, this is only Watson’s second Christmas one, while Hart’s been in quite a few. This time around, the flick has an extra dash of sweetness to it.

According to the synopsis, “Hard-working bakery owner Kate Holiday (Hart), has more cookie orders than she has time to fill this holiday season, and when her boyfriend suddenly breaks up with her, any shred of Christmas joy she was hanging onto, immediately disappears.

“After Kate hangs the last ornament on the tree and goes to bed, she awakens the next morning to a little bit of Christmas magic. She gets the surprise of her life when Chip (Watson), a handsome soldier who may or may not be the Nutcracker Prince from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, appears in her living room.”

The “A Very Nutty Christmas” cast also includes Marissa Winokur, Conchata Ferrell and Rizwan Manji. Hart and Paula Hart executive produced, while Colin Theys directed the holiday film from a script written by Juliet and Keith Giglio.

“A Very Nutty Christmas” premieres on Lifetime on Friday at 8 p.m. EST.
