Every Second Counts
Nominated for Best DGC MOW
Like a country tune filled with the usual cliches, Hallmark Channel’s “Every Second Counts” has everything but the cheating dog driving away in a stolen pickup truck — and yet it still comes off as a heartfelt, entertaining family movie. In fact, it’s downright refreshing to see a film that isn’t some Technicolor teen fantasy. “Every Second Counts” has neither the promotional machine of Disney nor the cool factor of Nickelodeon, but as far as family dramas go, this is a summer gem.
You Lucky Dog
After her mother's death, Lisa (Natasha Henstridge) returns to her childhood home.

Jim has purchased a flock of sheep, but is without a herding dog. While Lisa is staying with her family, she goes to a shelter, where she finds Lucky, an abandoned dog. Lucky may be just what the farm, and the family, need to get back on their feet.
The Santa Squad
An unemployed art (Rebecca Dalton) teacher accepts a job with the Santa Squad to help lift the spirits of a wealthy widower Gordon (Aaron Ashmore), and his two adorable daughters. As she helps the broken family rediscover the magic of Christmas, she finds something she didn’t expect: True love.
