Two iconic actors from the cult series Desperate Housewives will soon be reunited on screen in a Christmas TV movie.
Nine years after the broadcast of the last episode of Desperate Housewives, James Denton and Teri Hatcher, unforgettable in the roles of Susan Mayer and Mike Delfino, will be reunited again for a Christmas TV movie for the American channel Hallmark.
Entitled A kiss before Christmas, the film will tell the story of Ethan Holt (James Denton), a married real estate developer and father of two teenage children. On Christmas Eve, Ethan is denied a promotion and laments that his kindness in business prevents him from advancing in his career.
But when he wakes up the next day, his existence has changed dramatically. He is no longer married to his wife Joyce (Teri Hatcher), has no more children and runs his own company. To get his life back and the family he loves so much, Ethan will have to win Joyce’s heart back. However, time is running out and he will have to get there before Christmas Day.
Producer of this project, James Denton told the magazine Deadline, ” From the start, I wanted the first Christmas movie I was going to produce to be unique. I didn’t know we would be lucky enough to have Teri. We’ve always wanted to work together again and it was the perfect way to organize what I think was Desperate Housewives’ first reunion. “.
And to continue with humor, ” since we’re on the Hallmark channel, I won’t be shot at the end. “.
If the flagship couple of the cult series from 2004 to 2012 had experienced a tragic fate, fans can rejoice to see them again on the screen as a married couple.
A reunion that did not fail to delight Teri Hatcher too. ” Since that famous scene where he falls on me in the bush, i knew james and i would be friends for life. She declared.
Then add, ” the chemistry and friendship we had on Desperate Housewives is still present years later and the Christmas spirit provides the perfect backdrop for our reunion. It’s great to see each other again. It’s like the good old days. You don’t want to miss this. “.
This promises to give even more magic to this Christmas 2021!
