Hallmark movies are the stuff of holiday legend. Posters almost always feature an attractive couple in a red and green sweater, respectively. One probably has a high-powered city job and is taught the true meaning of small town Christmas. There’s likely a dog, some snow, and plenty of festive cheer.

But it seems like Asheville’s “A Biltmore Christmas” is subverting this proverbial plot formula. It follows screenwriter Lucy Hardgrove, who’s on set at Biltmore filming a remake of a 1940s classic. Thanks to a mysterious, magical hourglass, she’s transported back in time to the original set — where she falls for one of the film’s stars.

Even if you think you can predict the happy ending, you’ll get to see some Biltmore locations, like the Library and the Winter Garden, featured on screen and excitedly point them out to holiday guests.

“A Biltmore Christmas” premieres on the Hallmark Channel this Sunday, Nov. 26 at 8 p.m. You can also stream it on Peacock.
