Under a Deal With Great American Media, Candace Cameron Bure Will Star in First Holiday Film
Bah humbugs are unnecessary because Candace Cameron Bure has unveiled plans for a new holiday film. After appearing in more than 20 films for the network as the star of Fuller House, the actress announced her departure from Hallmark Channel in April. However, the actress has found a new home on Great American Family.
Since signing a contract with Great American Media (formerly GAC Media) earlier this year, Candace Cameron Bure is poised to star in and executive produce the holiday film A Christmas...Present. In November, the movie is scheduled to air for the first time on the Great American Family network.

The brand-new movie will air as part of the network's Great American Christmas holiday programming lineup on October 21. Through the end of 2022, it will offer a fresh slate of original holiday film premieres every Saturday and Sunday as well as nonstop Christmas programming.
Bure portrays real estate agent Maggie Larson in the film, who, according to GAC, is “an overbooked real estate agent and Type-A mom who takes her family to spend Christmas with her widower brother and his children.” “For the holiday, Maggie and her brother have quite different expectations. Maggie gains the ability to accept the purpose for the season through a sequence of transforming experiences.”
As part of her overall contract with Great American Family, Bure and her production business Candy Rock Entertainment will also executive produce the movie.
Bure said in a statement that “A Christmas Present is about slowing down enough to recognize what's right in front of our eyes.” “Christmas season will be here before we know it, but it's in the quiet moments that we hear God speak to us, guiding our path to what's most essential,” the author writes.
The Queen of Christmas movies, who starred in classics like Moonlight & Mistletoe (2008), A Christmas Detour (2015), and Switched for Christmas (2017), expressed excitement about developing “heartwarming family and faith-filled content” at GAC going forward.
Following her departure from Hallmark Channel in April, Bure inked a contract with Great American Media, later known as GAC Media. Bure will write, produce, and star in motion pictures and television projects for Great American Family and Great American Living under the terms of the agreement.
