The latest film to kick off Hallmark Channels "Countdown To Christmas" is one that is set in Avon, Connecticut and stars Danica McKeller from "The Wonder Years".
Now most of the movie was shot in British Columbia, but according to a Hallmark Channel press release, the film, called You, Me, & The Christmas Trees, is set on a tree farm in Avon, Connecticut, and stars Danica McKellar as Olivia and Benjamin Ayres as Jack as they work together to solve a mystery illness causing the Christmas trees on Jack’s farm to die out and fall for each other in the process.
The movies screenwriter, Julie Sherman Wolf, is no stranger to the Connecticut town, she actually calls Avon her home, and when she writes, she always tries to set her movies in Connecticut as she has done several times.
