EHF-Partner Torfoot Studios Premieres Holiday Hallmark

By: EHF Staff / Updated December 14, 2023

The holiday season is synonymous with cozy blankets, hot cocoa and heartwarming Hallmark Channel romances. 

Next up on EHF’s “Movie Merriment Month,” we are excited to announce that Torfoot Studios, co-developer of EHF’s (S)hit Squad and Sneakerhead (pre-production), has added a Hallmark hit to their impressive portfolio. 

Navigating Christmas, starring Chelsea Hobbs and Stephen Huszar, takes viewers on a journey of rediscovery, love, and the magic of Christmas. Recently divorced Melanie (played by Hobbs) decides to embark on a Christmas getaway with her son, Jason, to a picturesque island lighthouse, only to find themselves unexpectedly with real responsibilities. As they work to navigate the challenges, Melanie discovers a charming soft side to the seemingly reserved and curt owner of the lighthouse. Together, they find themselves fostering an unexpected connection that goes beyond the duties of running a lighthouse.

The film premiered at primetime on November 17, 2023, helping the popular network secure the title of most watched cable program among:


1) All Households

2) Total Viewers

3) Women 18+

4) Women 18-49

5) Women 25-54


Hallmark's Navigating Christmas offers viewers a delightful escape, combining romance, humor and the spirit of Christmas. The charming lighthouse setting on a snow-covered island provides a much welcomed and festive ambiance to the film. Chelsea Hobbs delivers a compelling performance as Melanie, portraying the character's resilience and vulnerability with authenticity. Stephen Huszar's portrayal of the lighthouse owner adds depth to the story, making the characters relatable and endearing. Hobbs’ and Huszar's chemistry make this film a must-watch for anyone seeking a heartwarming tale of love and second chances during the most wonderful time of the year.


Don't miss out on the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Hallmark hit before the holiday season ends!
