Candace Cameron Bure is back this Christmas with an inspiring family-friendly Great American Family movie, My Christmas Hero, where she takes on the role of orthopedic medicine and serves in the Army Reserves. The movie highlights faith, freedom and the joys of the Christmas season.
In My Christmas Hero, U.S. Army reservist and orthopedic physician, Nicole Ramsey (Bure) is dedicated to serving military service members and their families at the Joint Military Base in Lacey, Washington. This Christmas, with the help of many dedicated heroes, Dr. Ramsey is on a mission to honor a special fallen soldier and bring much-needed healing to her own family.
"Great American Media provides quality family-friendly programming that celebrates faith, family and country, and our unique partnership with Candy Rock allows us to produce best in class content. To be able to celebrate Christmas and this movie with the everyday heroes who selflessly serve our country was truly special for both Candace and me," said Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Great American Media. "My Christmas Hero is at the heart of who we are as a network."
Bure and Great American Family President and CEO Bill Abbott hosted the world premiere of My Christmas Hero exclusively for U.S. service men and women and their families last month at the joint Army and Air Force Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) in Washington state, where the film is set.
"We truly enjoyed the opportunity to salute these real Christmas heroes at the premiere of My Christmas Hero on the joint base," said Bure, who plays Dr. Nicole Ramsey in the movie. "It was fitting to host this screening here at JBLM because that's where the movie's story is set."
The red-carpet screening was held Wednesday, November 15 on the McChord (Air Force) side of JBLM-the base portrayed in My Christmas Hero. Bure stars in and is an executive producer of the new movie. Bure's co-star, Gabriel Hogan, was also in attendance. This event follows a recent announcement that Great American Family has experienced eleven consecutive months of growth making it TV's fastest-growing network.
"My Christmas Hero" is a Syrup Studios production in association with Candy Rock Entertainment. Mick MacKay served as producer, and Martin Wood directed the original screenplay written by Jim Head.
