When it comes to Hallmark it wouldn’t be Christmas without a sprinkle of Alicia Witt, who for the past three years has been part of the annual Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Miracles of Christmas programming event. Witt continues that tradition this weekend with the premiere of the inspiring Christmas Tree Lane, co-starring Andrew Walker (pictured at top with Witt), Briana Price and Drake Hogestyn. It's the story of a music store owner determined to save her beloved street from being demolished by contractor who falls in love with an employee of the company she is fighting. For Witt, the project was special in many ways, including the fact that it is based on her original idea, and for the first time she executive produced. "This was an idea I brought to Hallmark [about four] years ago," she explained during an exclusive interview with MediaVillage. "We've been developing it off and on since then, and we ended up with a close-to-finished draft at the end of last year, but because we did a different movie (Our Christmas Love Song) we continued preparing the script for this year.
