Grammy Award-winning singer and rising actress Kelly Rowland is teaming up with Lifetime for a new holiday film titled Merry Liddle Christmas.

Inspired by the singer’s “own recent Christmas catastrophe,” according to the network, the plot involves not only a glossy video shoot of the perfect Christmas, but a very good shot at romance with a neighbor, even though this breaks one of her dating rules.

Rowland and her husband Tim Weatherspoon serve as the film’s executive producers.

Merry Liddle Christmas is one of 28 original holiday-themed films that Lifetime is planning to debut this year under the “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime” campaign., It runs seven days a week from Oct. 25 through Dec. 25.

Posted by | Ray Cornelius

TV One is getting us into the holiday mood this December with two original movies: “Miss Me This Christmas” and “You Can’t Fight Christmas.” The films debut December 3 and 10 at 7 p.m. and features some of our favorite new stars. 

First up is “Miss Me This Christmas,” starring Erica Ash, Redaric Williams, Eva Marcille, Allen Maldonado and Nathan Davis Jr.  Regina (Ash) and Franklin (Williams) celebrated a fairytale Christmas wedding three years ago and seemed to have it all. Yet, now their marriage is on the rocks. When Franklin comes home at dawn after a night of partying with colleagues, Regina thinks he has cheated on her with his ex-girlfriend. Though Franklin denies it, the trust has been broken. The couple separates and the divorce is set to be finalized on their three-year anniversary.

Depressed and ready to drink her way through the holidays, Regina’s free-spirited best friend Trish McDonald (Marcille) intervenes. To cheer her up, the sneaker empire heiress drags Regina off to her place, a luxurious suite at The Chesterton. Franklin still loves Regina and wants to reconcile. But, when Regina accepts a hasty marriage proposal from millionaire tech entrepreneur Ulysses Danburg (Maldonado), Franklin fears he’ll never win her back. Fortunately, there may be a happy ending after all. And just in time for Christmas.
