Production will soon commence on Jingle & Bell, a Hallmark Channel original animated special, which will premiere on the network this holiday season.
Jingle & Bel is the second story and animated special to star one of Hallmark’s most lovable characters, Jingle the Husky Pup. The Hallmark Channel original animated special Jingle All the Way was a ratings success for the network and generated tremendous response for the Interactive Storybook and Story Buddy at Hallmark Gold Crown Stores.
In Jingle & Bell, Jingle the Husky Pup and his buddy Andrew meet some new friends. A girl Andrew’s age, Sofia, and her husky pup, Bell, have moved from sunny Palm City to Pineville weeks before Christmas. With no friends yet and not knowing what to expect, Sofia and Bell’s world is upside-down and it looks like it might be the worst Christmas ever. But with a little help from Jingle and Andrew, Sofia and Bell will soon discover that Christmas joy isn’t about where you are — it’s about who you are with!
Jingle & Bell is a Bent Image Lab Production. Jodi Schade, Diana Stuart, Shawn McClaren and Ray Di Carlo are executive producers. Tsui Ling Toomer is producer. Chel White directs from a teleplay by Allan Neuwirth.
