The Hallmark Channel holiday movie It’s Christmas, Eve will debut on November 10 at 8 PM.

Country music star LeAnn Rimes makes her debut on the Hallmark Channel, playing Eve Morgan, an interim school superintendent whose job it is to travel from city to city turning broken schools around. One day, Morgan is surprised to find she’s been assigned to a high school in her hometown. Eve meets Liam Bailey (Tyler Hynes), single dad of Abby Bailey (Eden Summer Gilmore), and head of a music department that is in the red and under the gun to miraculously turn around or be shut down.

Music is close to Eve’s heart; her late father was a jazz musician who taught her how to play music and sing. So raw is her dad’s passing that Eve hasn’t performed in a very long time. Now, the interim school superintendent predisposed to saying no may be persuaded to say yes to save the dreams of many while learning to live her own.

Here is a trailer for It’s Christmas, Eve.
