Kathie Lee Gifford, the longrunning television host of Today and Live with Regis and Kathie Lee, is stepping back in front of the camera, appearing in A Godwink Christmas: Meant for Love. The film, premiering Sunday night on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, is the second entry in the “Godwink Christmas” film series, based on the popular books by Squire Rushnell.

Gifford, who also serves as a producer, went to bat for the “Godwinks” series, appealing to Hallmark to “just give us a shot.” As a result, the first “Godwinks” Christmas movie was “the highest rated one they did last year.” So, production started on the newest one, with more on the way, she says.

“The new one is much, much better, and we’re already writing new ones,” she said.

In Meant for Love, two strangers from very different backgrounds—Alice (Cindy Busby) and Jack (Benjamin Hollingsworth)—meet at a wedding celebration. Gifford stars as Alice’s mom Olga, who encourages her to pursue the new relationship, which takes unusual twists and turns during the Christmas season.
