OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network is getting into the holiday spirit with three new original Christmas movies beginning November 15.
“We are excited to bring holiday movies to OWN,” said Tina Perry, president of OWN, in a statement. “This special time of year is about spending time with the ones you love, and we think our viewers are going to enjoy watching these movies together throughout the season.”
ONE FINE CHRISTMAS – NOVEMBER 15 @ 9 P.M. EST
Legendary actress Marla Gibbs and Vanessa Williams will join Rick Fox and his daughter, Sasha Fox, in this ensemble, making the father-daughter duo’s first acting gig together. Set in the neighborhood of Christmas Street, the movie tells the individual stories of its residents, who have forgotten the importance of family during the holiday season and find themselves united as they celebrate Christmas Eve.
CAROLE’S CHRISTMAS – NOVEMBER 22 @ 9 P.M. EST
Starring Jackée Harry, Cayden K. Williams (star of OWN’s David Makes Man), and Kimberly Elise, Carole’s Christmas follows Carole Jordan (Elise), a busy, overworked business woman who finds her life turned upside down after wishing she’d taken a different path in life. The only person she can trust is Iris (Harry), a woman from her “past life,” and eventually, the story finds Carole learning about gratitude.
BAKING CHRISTMAS – NOVEMBER 29 @ 9 P.M. EST
Patty (Aloma Wright), the matriarch and founder of her town’s most popular bakery, announces her intentions to retire at year’s end, which prompts her children—Jennifer (Khalilah Joi), Angela (Leigh-Ann Rose), and Anthony (Arnell Powell)—to step up and offer their ideas for the future of the family business. The determining factor as to who will lead? Why, a Christmas cake bakeoff that is bound to get messy as siblings fight for control.
