ION Television’s first originally produced television film, the holiday themed “A Golden Christmas,” will make its world premiere on Dec. 13. The two-hour film is the first of a dozen originally produced made-for-television movies that ION Television is slated to roll out throughout 2010.

"Christmas" stars Andrea Roth (“Rescue Me”), Jason London (“Dazed and Confused”), Nicholas Brendon (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), Bruce Davison (“Ghost Whisperer,” “Longtime Companion”), Elisa Donovan (“Sabrina, The Teenage Witch”) and Alley Mills (“The Wonder Years,” “The Bold and the Beautiful”). The film is produced by MarVista Entertainment; directed by John Murlowski; and written by Jay Cipriani.

“We are thrilled that ‘A Golden Christmas’ is kicking off our new originally produced series of movies-for-television,” said Chesloff. “It’s a touching, funny story that is sure to become a holiday classic. We look forward to the premiere of this film and our other original movies, which together will help anchor our weekend primetime line-up as we move into 2010.”
