Atlanta, GA (November 22, 2010) – gmc, America’s favorite channel for uplifting music and family entertainment, will premiere Christmas with a Capital C, their first GMC World Premiere Christmas movie, on Sunday, December 5 at 7 p.m. ET. The movie will encore at 9 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET.

‘Tis the season to be jolly, but holiday traditions are under attack when lawyer Mitch Bright returns to his hometown of Trapper Falls, Alaska. Residents of the small town who once looked forward to each year with enthusiasm and taking great care to drape the town with Christmas cheer every season, find themselves in the heat of a legal battle with a former member of their community. Christmas with a Capital C stars Daniel Baldwin (Cold Case) as Mitch Bright and Ted McGinley (Married with Children) as Mayor Dan Reed. High school rivalry between the two re-ignite over a Nativity scene in the town square. Nancy Stafford plays Reed’s wife. Brad Stine plays Reed’s brother. The movie is based on the song “Christmas with a Capital C” by the contemporary Christian band Go Fish. The video featuring this song has received over 15 million views online.

“Christmas with a Capital C is based on what has been referred to as ‘the war on Christmas,’” said Leslie Chesloff, executive vice president, programming, gmc. “The movie delivers provocative subject matter and rich performances by an ensemble cast of talented actors. The quaint community and picturesque landscape of Seward, Alaska lent itself beautifully to the storyline of this movie,” she continued.
