The 2021 Countdown to Christmas celebration on the Hallmark Channel continues with a brand-new original movie, Christmas Sail, starring Katee Sackhoff, Patrick Sabongui and Terry O’Quinn.
Christmas Sail synopsis
Liz (Sackhoff) is a single mom who hasn’t been home for Christmas in years, not since her mother died. She has an estranged relationship with her father, Dennis (O’Quinn), but when she learns that he was hurt in an accident she goes home to Portside.
It has been a long time since she’s been home, and oddly enough not much has changed except for her best friend Luke (Sabongui), who has grown up a lot. Luke is dealing with some problems of his own, and when the town’s annual Christmas Eve Sailboat Parade of Lights rolls around Liz thinks it might be the perfect solution.
Christmas Sail cast
Katee Sackhoff has been in numerous TV shows and movies, and she’s best known for her role as Starbuck on Battlestar Galactica. She’s also appeared in The Mandalorian, 24, Halloween: Resurrection, Longmire and The Flash, and she also lent her voice to Star Wars: The Clone Wars. This is her first Hallmark Channel movie.
Patrick Sabongui recently starred in Firefly Lane on Netflix and is currently shooting the final season of Shameless. He also appeared on The CW’s The Flash, Homeland and The Good Doctor, and some of his movie appearances include Zack Snyder’s 300 and Watchmen.
Terry O’Quinn has been a familiar face around television for years. Perhaps known best for his role on ABC’s Lost, he recently appeared in Amazon’s Patriot and FBI: Most Wanted, and soon he’ll star in Netflix’s Pieces of Her with Toni Collette.
Christmas Sail was directed by Stacey N. Harding from a script by Robin Gadsby.
