Lifetime is giving Grey’s Anatomy fans a special reunion: Sarah Drew and Justin Bruening in Reindeer Games Homecoming! Drew not only stars in the film, which is part of the network’s 2022 “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime” slate, but serves as executive producer and writer as well.
Previously, the actress has previously starred in Twinkle All the Way and Christmas Pen Pals.
MacKenzie Graves (Sarah Drew) is a brilliant, competitive, crossword puzzle loving Biology teacher in Vermont who recently lost her father, beloved fire chief and the heart of the town’s holiday fundraising tradition “The Reindeer Games.” Every year since his death, she competes with her dad’s former team, a group of colorful retired firefighters, to win the Games and keep his tradition alive. The holiday however, her world is rocked when fading Hollywood star, and Mac’s high school crush, Chase Weston (Justin Bruening), comes home for Christmas to visit his pregnant sister and nephew and is begrudgingly roped into participating in the Games. When the opportunity to compete against her former mega crush arises, Mac is determined to show him up and win the Kris Kringle Cup at all costs. As the competition heats up, so does the spark between Mac and Chase, and Chase soon finds himself eager to not only win the games, but also win her heart as well. Brian Sills also stars.
The full “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime” slate and airdates will be announced this fall.
