In the flick — airing as part of the network’s annual “25 Days of Christmas” promotion — Odette’s Lizzie is an event planner preparing for her wedding, who lies awake nightly while her fiancé rests peacefully. When a sleep-deprived incident causes her to run into Billy (Dave), a bartender who is just as sleepless and frustrated as she is, they discover that they can only fall asleep while next to each other.
Brothers & Sisters vet Dave most recently appeared in the series premiere of Yellowstone, while his other TV credits include Heartbeat, Red Band Society and 666 Park Avenue. Odette — who just wrapped a season-long arc on Supergirl — previously starred on Pure Genius, The Astronaut Wives Club, Banshee and House.
