We’d like to thank the kind folks at Lifetime for giving us ample opportunity to clear our schedules before their lineup of original Christmas movies hits the air.
The network recently announced their six-part "It's a Really, Really Cozy Christmas" special, which kicks off November 25 with Wrapped Up in Christmas, starring Tatyana Ali and Brendan Fehr. Ali plays the role of Heather, a mall manager with the unfortunate task of closing poorly-performing stores who unwittingly falls in love with the mall’s resident Santa.
Next up is A Very Merry Toy Store, which is set to air Sunday, November 26. Starring Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez, A Very Merry Toy Store tells the tale of two rival toy store owners who develop a bond while they struggle to compete with a new big box store in town.
A week later you’ll want to tune in again for Four Christmases and a Wedding, the winding saga of an event planner who has given up on love but can’t seem to shake her feelings for the handsome man she runs into every year at the annual holiday festival she oversees.
Then on December 2nd, viewers will recognize Pitch Perfect’s Alexis Knapp in My Christmas Prince, as a teacher from New York who finds out her diplomat boyfriend is actually a prince.
Southerners will love the next movie, Christmas in Mississippi, which hits television sets on December 9th. In it a photographer named Holly returns to her hometown of Gulfport, Mississippi for Christmas. The town is resurrecting their traditional holiday light show for the first time since a terrible hurricane struck five years earlier. Holly volunteers to pitch in, but soon has second thoughts when she discovers the festival is run by her high school sweetheart whom she begins to fall in love with all over again.
Last, but certainly not least, is Snowed-Inn Christmas. On December 16th, catch this swoon-worthy tale of two New York City journalists who find themselves trapped by a snowstorm in none other than Santa Claus, Indiana.
We don’t know about you, but this holiday season is looking merry and bright already!
