Meredith Baxter and Michael Gross are renewing their ties.

The actors played spouses for seven years (1982-89) on the NBC sitcom "Family Ties," on which their "children" included politically immersed Alex P. Keaton (Michael J. Fox). They reunite Saturday (Nov. 24) in the new Hallmark Channel movie "Naughty or Nice," as the parents of one Krissy Kringle ("One Tree Hill" alum Hilarie Burton), an advertising executive whose holiday season is mirrored by a magical book detailing whether she's been -- yes -- naughty or nice.

"It's pretty special," Gross tells Zap2it about acting again with Baxter, with whom he also shares a birthday (June 21, 1947). "One of the nice things about 'Family Ties' has been the relationship with the cast members over the years, most particularly Meredith.

"She was just a special person, and still is. I didn't realize, until I read her book, how important our friendship was to her at the time. »
