As part of Lifetime’s “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime,” Sarah Drew and Justin Bruening are sharing the screen once again in Reindeer Games Homecoming. The Nerds of Color has an exclusive clip featuring the former Grey’s Anatomy duo, which we are so excited to share! The holiday film premieres Saturday, November 12 at 8/7c.
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. This 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 megacrush 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 to win her heart as well.
In this sneak peek, MacKenzie accidentally pulls Chase into the high school makeout spot, leading to some adorable banter and Chase beginning to open up to her as they take a trip down memory lane.
