"Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" co-stars Jane Seymour and Joe Lando will share the screen once more in a Lifetime Christmas movie.

As part of the network's It's A Wonderful Lifetime line-up, the Toni Braxton-produced "A Christmas Spark" will reunite the actors for a romantic flick. In the film, Seymour plays a recently widowed named Molly, a woman who "has lost her zest for life and given up on ever finding love again."

Lifetime teases, "But when she decides to visit her daughter for Christmas, she has no idea what holiday magic is in store for her. A former drama teacher, Molly reluctantly takes on the job of directing the town's Christmas pageant and soon finds herself falling for her leading man, Hank (Lando), the town's most eligible bachelor."

As the unlikely pair finds love, Molly "rediscovers her inner free spirit and finds a new lease on life. And when the star of the pageant loses her voice moments before the show, it will be up to Molly to step into the spotlight and shine brightly for the first time in her life."

Seymour played the titular Dr. Quinn for six seasons of "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" and two TV movies alongside Lando's Byron Sully. The main series ran from 1993 to 1998, with the two TV films airing in 1999 and 2001.

The project is among a trio of new holiday movies announced Thursday by the network, including "Kirk Franklin's The Night Before Christmas," starring "Power" star Naturi Naughton and "The Chi" star Luke James, and "Merry Swissmas," starring "Full House" alum Jodie Sweetin and "Schitt's Creek" alum Tim Rozon.

Debuting on Nov. 5, "Merry Swissmas" kicks off Lifetime's holiday movie season. The full schedule will be revealed later in the fall.
