West Chester’s QVC Goes Hallmark with Film Release of ‘Holly and the Hot Chocolate’  


West Chester’s flagship shopping network QVC is making a wintry debut in the holiday movie scene, competing with the likes of made-for-television moguls like Hallmark and Lifetime, writes Dan Snierson for Entertainment Weekly.

Holly and the Hot Chocolate follows a cosmopolitan film critic named Holly — played by the prolific Philadelphia-based actress, model, and voiceover artist Hanna Gaffney — who finds herself stuck in the fictional town of Pine Falls.  

QVC’s In the Kitchen with David host David Venable plays a vendor for the town’s beloved hot chocolate, serving as a plot vehicle for the film’s partnership with NYC-based dessert destination Serendipity.  

The film also stars Ryan Farrell (Delco Proper alumnus Steven Gerber), and Philadelphia-area actress Olivia Gropp.

Holly and the Hot Chocolate premiers on the free streaming platform QVC+ on Nov. 24.
