About “Catch Me If You Claus”

  • Nina Weinman wrote the script for “Catch Me If You Claus.” Nina has 32 previous writing credits including “Napa Ever After” and “A Nashville Legacy” both from earlier this year. Nina has written a total of 30 movies for Hallmark since 2010. I also just learned from Nina herself that she has three more scripts just put into development.
  • This was directed by Bradley Walsh. He has 44 previous directing credits including many projects for Hallmark. I did want to point out that he has also directed a couple of episode of the series “Sullivan’s Crossing” which stars Chad Michael Murray and Scott Patterson (that’s Luke from Gilmore Girls) – where season 1 is currently airing on the CW. If you’re a GGH listener and watching “Sullivan’s Crossing” drop us an email or a DM and let us know if it’s something we should be watching.
  • Italia Ricci stars as Avery. Ricci has 27 previous acting credits. Her last film for Hallmark was “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” in 2021, which was also written by Nina Weinman. Her work outside of Hallmark includes a show called “The Imperfects” which is a sci-fi action series now streaming on Netflix. Of course you might also recognize her from the 53 episodes of “Designated Survivor” or as April Carver in “Chasing Life.”

  • Luke Macfarlane stars as Chris. This is Luke’s second movie for Hallmark since returning to the network after a short hiatus. Earlier this year we saw him in “Notes of Autumn.” Luke continues to work outside of Hallmark with a recent true-crime movie for Lifetime called “Amish Stud: The Eli Weaver Story” as well as a movie called “Lone Star Bull” which is currently in post production.

  • “Catch Me if You Claus” was filmed in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada – which according to – shooting started at the end of October 2023 and was wrapped up by November. This came out on Thanksgiving Day. Is that the tightest turn around we’ve seen or do you think those dates are inaccurate?
