Special Episode: Stephen Garvey, David Abbinanti on Hallmark Movie Tropes in ‘5 Golden Rings’


On today’s episode, Matt is in conversation with the writers of a new musical that was seemingly written specifically for him, “5 Golden Rings: A Greeting Card Channel Musical.” Stephen Garvey and David Abbinanti tell Matt about the unusual writing process for the show, all of the familiar tropes and plotlines that they included in the show, and their favorite Hallmark films. 

In “Five Golden Rings,” Holly — a business exec from “the big city”— gets snowed in at a quaint Vermont B&B for Christmas and begins to fall for its non-threateningly rugged owner. The issue: it’s the very B&B her company is supposed to take over! Everything you want (and expect) in a cable-TV Christmas movie, from flannel shirts to flirtatious snowball fights to overt product placement, mixed with fun songs and a lot of holiday cheer!
