Chiefs, Hallmark team up to produce Christmas movie, 'Holiday Touchdown: A Chiefs Love Story'

The Chiefs are making a movie in 2024, and Patrick Mahomes is not the headliner.

Kansas City and Hallmark are collaborating with the NFL and Skydance Sports to make a holiday movie. Tyler Hynes, Hunter King and Ed Begley Jr. will star in the Holiday Touchdown: A Chiefs Love Story. The film is set to premiere on the Hallmark Channel this winter during the 15th annual Countdown to Christmas programming event.

"We are honored to partner with Hallmark on a project as unique as this," Chiefs president Mark Donovan said in a statement. "As a club, we pride ourselves on exploring new ways to grow our brand, as well as connect with new audiences. This partnership unites two passionate fanbases and gives us an opportunity to show Chiefs Kingdom's energy and tradition on one of the most-watched channels during the holiday season."

The movie is set to begin production in July and film in Kansas City, Missouri, locations, including GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium (the Chiefs' home stadium).

"With Hallmark and the Kansas City Chiefs both homegrown, rooted in values, tradition and community, there is a special alchemy between these two iconic organizations," Hallmark chief brand officer Darren Abbott said in a statement. "By blending the warmth of Hallmark storytelling with the excitement of professional football, we are thrilled to give audiences a front-row seat to this community's spirit, rich traditions and passionate fans that define Kansas City, all wrapped up in the comforting and uplifting Hallmark way."

While the Chiefs are on their quest to threepeat, Kansas City fans may see an appearance from a Lombardi Trophy or perhaps two later this winter.
