Desperately Seeking Santa is a ABC Family original movie, produced by Muse Entertainment, that premiered on November 27, 2011, as part of the channel's annual 25 Days of Christmas event.


Jennifer, a young, ambitious executive running promotions at a failing Boston mall comes up with a genius promotional gimmick to save her workplace and position herself for advancement: hold a "Hunky Santa" contest to replace the old Mall Santa. David, a local man trying to save his family's pizzeria, ultimately wins the contest and sparks fly between him & Jennifer. However, complications ensue when it comes to light that the company Jennifer works for is the same one trying to run David's family out of business.
