The Lifetime Original Christmas film will air Monday, December 21st at 8/7c on Lifetime.
Dumped two weeks before Christmas, famous Hollywood actress Olivia O’hara secretly returns to her tiny hometown to hide, eat cookies and avoid the press. What she doesn’t expect, is to be faced with the family she left behind, a new guy in her life (charming high school teacher Casey Rawlins), and a noisy reporter (she’s been followed!). Completely overwhelmed, Olivia contemplates running away from her life (aka feelings) once again but with a new found confidence and freedom, Olivia bravely steps up to take the starring role in her own life realizing that home is where the heart is and that she deserves to be loved for exactly who she really is.
Tori alongside Benjamin Hollingsworth star in Love Under the Olive Tree, premiering Saturday, September 28th at 9 PM ET/PT, on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual “Fall Harvest” programming event. This movie was pulled from the “Fall Harvest” lineup and hasn’t aired yet.

You can read the synopsis for the film here:
Nicole Cabella (Anderson) has been handed the reigns of her family’s Northern California olive oil business and has big plans for expansion, until she runs into attorney and childhood crush Jake Brandini (Hollingsworth), heir apparent to the neighboring ranch and her biggest competitor. Jake discovers that the area where Nicole wants to expand may belong to his family, stemming from a decades-long feud that’s been simmering since their grandfathers ended their olive oil business partnership. When a local judge decides to resolve the land dispute by awarding it to the winner of the town’s upcoming olive oil competition, it only serves to further fan the flames between the Cabella and Brandini families. But Nicole and Jake, trying to stay above the fray, begin finding common ground as they rekindle old feelings for one another. However, their budding romance is threatened as the big competition looms
