Hallmark Hall of Fame has started production on its next presentation for CBS, “A Dog Named Christmas.”

Bruce Greenwood (“Star Trek”), Noel Fisher (“The Riches”) and Linda Emond (“Julie & Julia”) are set to star in the holiday movie based on Greg Kincaid’s novel.

“Christmas” centers on Todd (Fisher), a developmentally challenged young man with a penchant for caring for animals in need. He sets out to convince his parents (Greenwood, Emond) and their rural community to participate in a local shelter’s Adopt a Dog for Christmas program, which entails caring for a dog during Christmas week, with the option of keeping the dog for good.

Todd eventually brings home a yellow Labrador he names “Christmas” and bonds with immediately.

Peter Werner (“Front of the Class”) is directing “Christmas” from a script by Jenny Wingfield (“The Man in the Moon”). Brent Shields (“The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler”) is executive producing the telefilm, which is filming in Saskatchewan.
