Last May, we reported that actress Tatyana Ali was not returning to TV One’s Love that Girl  because of her contractual agreement with BET ‘s Second Generation Wayans  prohibited her from being on two rival network shows at the same time. Unfortunately, the BET show was not renewed for a second season which left many of you have been asking, “What is the actress up to now?”

DearSecretSanta-StarzMediaWell, I am pleased to announce that Ali is appearing in a new Lifetime film titled, Dear Secret Santa.  The movie airs at the end of the month and also stars Jordin Sparks, Bill Cobbs, Ernie Hudson, Larmorne Morris and Della Reese.

Here is a brief synopsis:

After breaking up with her boyfriend, Jennifer, moves back to the house she grew up in bringing back memories of her friend Jack, who used to live next door but recently passed away. One day, Jennifer gets a Christmas card from a “Secret Admirer” in her mailbox and becomes curious as to who sent it. The admirer knows so many personal things about her that she decides to write back and is astonished when something they say reminds her of Jack. Is it possible that he is sending her the Christmas cards?  I guess we will find out on November 30 at 8 p.m. when the film debuts.

In the meantime, check out the BTS of Dear Santa:
