My Southern Family Christmas is the Christmas special in the beautiful location around Louisiana state in Ascension Parish. The trailer already looks promising enough for a great start for the film. 

Bruce Campbell charmed viewers of the Hallmark Channel with the holiday-themed original film One December Night last year, and he returns this year with My Southern Family Christmas.

Campbell has the chance to meet her biological father for the first time in the upcoming Hallmark Christmas film, "Under the Mask of a Journalist," without him ever realizing who she is. She learns that families are complicated, amazing things as she spends time with him, his family, and the town's record keeper.

In the end, Campbell will have to choose between keeping her identity a secret and telling her father the truth, which will affect how their family celebrates Christmas moving forward.

Due to its varied scenery and convenient access to the highway, rail, and canals, Ascension Parish has served as the setting for countless movies for more than 50 years. Producers can choose from rural, industrial, retail, or historic sites in Ascension, close to Interstate 10. It is, therefore, the perfect location for large-scale productions or photoshoots close to Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

Ascension Parish boasts nearly 1,900 hotel rooms, bed & breakfast accommodations, RV parking, plantations, gardens, shopping, and dining options ranging from informal to elegant.

The film's trailer starts with a laughter track and gives a fairytale vibe. The relocation adds to the wonderful scenes and visuals of the show. This one already has thousands of views on YouTube and will do well when it releases.
