The Christmas Contract premiere is almost here and Lifetime has released a sneak peek of the original film that is reuniting a lot of your One Tree Hill favorites. The scene features Danneel Ackles as Naomi, who is trying to help her best friend Jolie (Hilarie Burton) avoid her ex by pairing Jolie up with her brother Jack (Robert Buckley).
We can tell from the scene that Jolie needs help making her ex jealous, or at least a distraction from his social media PDA posts with his new girlfriend. And Jack thinks whatever this Christmas contract is might actually be "a good deal," but based on the scene alone, it's hard to tell exactly what these two probable lovebirds are actually signing up to do. How does pretending to date help rebrand Jack as an author?
Obviously, we consulted the official description to find out! Apparently, Jolie is also a graphic designer and will make Jack a new website for his novelist career. The contract turns out to be "more than they bargained for," which is TV holiday movie speak for "sparks fly and they fall in love." We can't wait!
The Christmas Contract premieres Thursday, Nov. 22 at 8/7c on Lifetime.
