Kansas City Chiefs announce new Christmas movie on Hallmark

Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift’s on-field kiss at the Super Bowl appears to have inspired a Chiefs-themed Hallmark Christmas movie, as it has been announced that production on the film is set to begin this summer.

On Tuesday, the two organizations, the NFL and Skydance Sports, announced that the next holiday film, “Holiday Touchdown: A Chiefs Love Story,” would be in the works beginning in July.

“Holiday Touchdown” will be based on the journey of a young woman, Alana Higman, who “is confident that her family’s history as Kansas City Chiefs superfans makes her a favorite to win the team’s ‘Fan of the Year’ contest,” according to a Chiefs press release.

The team’s director of fan engagement, Derrick, is tasked with deciding whether Alana’s family is a serious contender for the competition, and “as the couple spends time together, it’s clear that they There’s a spark between them.”

The film will also highlight the hometown of the Chiefs since it will be filmed entirely in Kansas City. Hallmark also originated there, having been founded in Kansas City in 1910.

The NFL and the Chiefs are producing a Christmas movie, starting this summer

Actors Hunter King, Tyler Hynes and Ed Begley Jr. are all set to star in the film.

Hynes, known for his role in “The Three Wise Men and a Baby,” previously appeared alongside Kelce’s mother, Donna Kelce, in an NFL promo earlier this year.

Romance was a very common theme at Chiefs games last season, with Kelce and Swift becoming romantically linked in the fall.

The popstar has also attended 13 Chiefs games in the past 12 months to support her pal, who is the Chiefs’ star tight end.

Over the weekend, Swift and Kelce appeared on stage for the first time together at one of the hitmaker’s London concerts.

The American pop star then changed outfits and performed I Can Do It With A Broken Heart from her latest album, The Tortured Poets Department, in front of a screaming audience of nearly 90,000 fans.

The 34-year-old from Pennsylvania ended her trio of concerts in London with the song Karma.
