18, 2020) - "It's a true story of Scottish history," said Brooke Burfitt (Plan Z), who
stars in the Lifetime holiday movie presentation of "Christmas at the Castle" with Dan
Jeannotte (Hallmark's "Good Witch"). "It's a Celtic Christmas."
the Castle airs on the Lifetime network Wednesday December 23, 2020 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. It follows Blaire Henderson (Brooke)
a perfume expert from New York who is ordered by her boss to acquire a rare fragrance located in a remote town in Scotland
owned by Aristocrat, Earl Alistair McGregor (Dan), who refuses to sell it. Her attempt at convincing him to tell her the secrets
to the fragrance makes for a very light and heart-felt movie.
"The script is delightful. Shot in Scotland,"
said Dan Jeannotte (Netflix's "Designated Survivor") about his experience with the film. In reference to Christmas
at the Castle he continued, "You see it from the view of the woman, a New York Perfume rep. She is given the job to get
this beautiful perfume fragrance from this little perfume owner. Her boss is breathing down her neck. She doesn't think it
through trying to get closer to get this perfume. It is funny how she spends her time at the Castle with the Earl...not knowing
how to act. It really is a nice story. Her relationship with the Earl, who I play...It begins deceptive...then they see each
other as who they really are. You want them to find love....they have a nice chemistry. You hope that she gets her head out
The deception is that she poses as a documentary filmmaker in her attempt to learn the secret
formula of the rare fragrance. Christmas at the Castle is produced by Reel One Entertainment, with Rory Gorman, John Johnston,
Lars Knudsen, Scott Lines, Rhys Williams, Tom Berry, Louisa Cadywould and Sebastian Battro as executive producers.
"I got to know Reel One Entertainment the last two years to present ideas to Lifetime. I'm on both sides (acting and
producing), I'm primarily an actress. I have ideas for films because I watch films...and this one, I did not let go. So I
came up with the concept but I did not write the script though," Burfitt pointed out.
The script for Christmas
at the Castle was written by Louise Burfitt-Dons (her mother) and directed by Ryan Alexander Dewar. The airing date just so
happens to be the birthday of Brooke Burfitt. The Reel One Entertainment project was first released as Christmas in the Highlands
in 2019 in the United Kingdom with Brooke as one of its producers and Louise as screenwriter.
