BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Remember when it was snowing in October in Bridgeport?

It was all part of fake snow for the filming of "Broadcasting Christmas," a Hallmark movie starring Westport resident Melissa Joan Hart and Dean Cain. At the time -- in late October -- residents reported film sightings at the corner of State and Main streets, the Main Street entrance to McLevy Green, and the Arcade Mall.

Filming was also spotted at the old Fairfield Community Theatre, a 1920s-era movie house in Fairfield as well as at Las Vetas and along the sidewalk on Unquowa Road in downtown Fairfield.

The movie, airing Sunday, Dec. 11, at 8 a.m., centers on Emily (Hart), a TV anchor, aimed at climbing the ranks who finds out she has stiff competition with Charlie (Dean Cain ), the local (Connecticut!) anchor who is her near equal on another station. The drama takes place a few days before Christmas.

The film also stars Jackée Harry of "227" and "Sister, Sister" fame.

"Broadcasting Christmas" is also scheduled to air Monday. Dec. 12, at  6 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 17 at 10 p.m.;  Saturday, Dec. 24 at 12 a.m. and Sunday, Dec. 25 at 5 a.m. Go HERE for more information.
