Lifetime is giving fans of the beloved CBS series Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman an early Christmas gift this weekend with the premiere of A Christmas Spark. The film unites the leads of that series, Jane Seymour (Quinn) and Joe Lando (Byron Sully), as two widowed individuals whose chance encounter in an airport dramatically changes the direction of their lives. It's been a while since the duo collaborated on-screen, and for these real-life best friends, any chance to work together was welcomed. "When I first read it, I thought, 'You know, Joe's my best friend,' and I just didn't think of him being in it,'" Seymour recently recalled while promoting the movie. "I wondered whether he'd be interested in what I'm about to do. He read it and said, 'Oh, Jane, you're going to have so much fun on this one! This is one of the best Lifetime movies I've ever read.' Then somebody got a really good idea and decided to offer it to [him]. I am so grateful as it was absolute magic when Joe said he'd do this."
