The Skinny on *Love at the Christmas Table*!
posted on November 30th, 2012

Update - The movie did great in the ratings, and it will be repeating throughout December. :)

Here is the movie's website, which has the upcoming schedule (it repeats on Dec 1st, Dec 2nd, Dec 9th, Dec 17th and Dec 25th) and a few photos. Enjoy, and thanks for watching, everyone!


Hey everyone!

I'm very excited about a TV movie I have coming out on Lifetime this month - it's called "Love at the Christmas Table" and it premieres the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend - November 25th, 7pm/6pmC.

Interestingly, it airs right before the Lindsay Lohan movie Liz & Dick, a biopic about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. I'm not totally sure what one film has to do with the other, but my Christmas movie airs AFTER Liz & Dick, too. Kinda like a Danica/Lindsay sandwich, right? (Don't answer that.)

My film, Love at the Christmas Table, is a romantic comedy set at Christmastime, and it chronicles the romance between Sam & Kat from the ages 5 to 32. They first meet under the children's table on Christmas Eve (hence the word "table" in the title), catching up with both characters each year at Christmas -often at that very same children's table. It's fun, touching, adorable, and yes... hilarity ensues.

Here's its IMDB page. My romantic co-star is Dustin Milligan, who is a total cutie and total sweetheart, too, so it was easy to have good chemistry onscreen! And Lea Thompson was so awesome to work with. I've been a fan of hers since Back to the Future, and she did not disappoint. So professional and funny. I would love to work with BOTH of them again. 

So, Lifetime is doing a series of Christmas movies, all part of their "It's a Wonderful Lifetime" event. Cute name, right? Like It's a Wonderful Life. Tell me you've seen that movie. Many times. (If not, stop reading this and go watch it. Many times.) And they asked me to do some promos for it - here's the picture I recently posted on FB and Twitter. 

I've been asked who designed the dress. No less than Herve Leger. LOVE his stuff. Only downside is that you can't really eat a sandwich before you wear one of his dresses. Not unless you want to hold your breath the whole time, that is. ;) 

And I should mention that shooting this movie was one of the most fun experiences I've had on a set - the cast and crew were awesome, and the script was such a delight to perform. I got to play the character from the ages of 18-32, with scenes ranging from subtle comedy, to raw emotional stuff to, well, this: 

Do you like the bangs? Kind of a throwback to that show I did as a kid. ;)

I can promise you that my movie will put you in the Christmas spirit... not sure I can say the same thing about "Liz & Dick" (but I'm going to watch it anyway). 

Oh, and I should mention! I will be LIVE TWEETING during the premiere, yes, during the East coast AND West coast premiere. How will I do that? 


So be sure to tune in to Lifetime for "Love at the Christmas Table" on Sunday November 25th at 7pm/6pmC, full from Thanksgiving and ready to start feeling all Christmas-y. And if you're on Twitter, find me there (@danicamckellar) ready to ask your Q's during the premiere. I'll be ready with A's and also some random behind-the-scenes trivia along the way. 

Can't wait!

xoxo, Danica

I watched this movie the other night with my 24yr old daughter who is trying to get a break into the acting business here in South Mississippi. She has filmed 3 movies in Mobile, Al and is doing auditions in New Orleans all the time.

We really enjoyed this movie and thought you were terrific in it. The scene where you and your friend were having a real fight, him on the phone outside of your house and you inside was very good. I believed every second of it. Yall crushed each other but were very real toward each other because you knew each other so well. Very nice!!!

You were always a very beautiful young lady!!! Good luck in the future!! Look forward to seeing you in other things. A Big fan!!

No comments?  I have a comment!  Wife and I just watched your movie Love at the Christmas Table, and we both cried.  Very moving.  LOVED the ending, the plot twist, and how convincingly you and Dustin sold it.  I admit that my favorite genre of movie is romantic comedy, love Hallmark around this time of year (go Lifetime!).  Usually however, the endings are weak, almost anti-climactic.  NOT THIS TIME.  Thanks Danica for a wonderful performance, and please make more movies!  Your fans, Jeff and Helen in Evergreen, Colorado

This is a delightful movie - not the typical holiday rom-com. First of all, "Table" is well written - it is an intimate film that is a little quirky and quietly humorous. And "Table" has a cast of very good actors. Danica mentioned some but I would add Scott Patterson and Alexandra Paul as well as Danica herself.

This is an absolutely delightful movie. Quietly literate, witty, and quirky. Good concept, good writing, and good cast. "Table" is not your typical holiday romantic comedy. If you missed the broadcasts hopefully Lifetime will sell the DVD!

The common rail system prototype was developed in the late 1960s by Robert Huber of Switzerland and the technology further developed by Dr. Marco Ganser at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, later of Ganser-Hydromag AG (est.1995) in Ober?geri. The first successful usage in a production vehicle began in Japan by the mid-1990s. Dr. Shohei Itoh and Masahiko Miyaki of the Denso Corporation, a Japanese automotive parts manufacturer, developed the Common Rail fuel system for heavy duty vehicles and turned it into practical use on their ECD-U2 common-rail system mounted on the Hino Rising Ranger truck and sold for general use in 1995.[3] Denso claims the first commercial high pressure common rail system in 1995.[4] Modern common rail systems, whilst working on the same principle sensor are governed by an engine control unit (ECU) which opens each injector electronically rather than mechanically. This was extensively prototyped in the 1990s with collaboration between Magneti Marelli,Centro Ricerche Fiat and Elasis. After research and development by the Fiat Group, the design was acquired by the German companyRobert Bosch GmbH for completion of development and refinement for mass-production Common Rail Nozzle . In hindsight, the sale appeared to be a tactical error for Fiat, as the new technology proved to be highly profitable. The Common Rail Injector Valve had little choice but to sell, however, as it was in a poor financial state at the time and lacked the resources to complete development on its own.[5] In 1997 they extended its use for passenger cars Common Rail Injector . The first passenger car that used the common rail system was the 1997 model Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD,[6] and later on that same year Mercedes-Benz C 220 CDI.Common Rail Shim & Gasket kit have been used in marine and locomotive applications for some time. The Cooper-Bessemer GN-8 (circa 1942) is an example of a hydraulically operated common rail diesel engine, also known as a modified common rail.
