With the holiday season swiftly approaching, Christmas movies will be taking over television airways in no time. But as opposed to simply replaying the same old classics, TV networks have also been pretty busy producing original holiday films as well. Lifetime recently announced one of their new Christmas movies, starring Tatyana Ali, which is titled Dear Secret Santa. A brief description of the film reads:
“After breaking up with her boyfriend, Jennifer (Ali), 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?”
Tatyana’s co-stars include Jordin Sparks, Della Reese, Bill Cobb, Ernie Hudson and Lamorne Harris.
“It’s a story of coming back home. It’s about true love. It’s about finding your faith again,” Tatyana said of the film.
“I think Jennifer has to learn how to love again and how to be emotional and how to not be afraid of that. I think it’s about family. It’s really sweet and innocent because it’s about the idea that anything can happen. What I should say is the spirit of Christmas. Like, wow, miracles are actually possible. Magic can actually happen,” she continued.
Dear Secret Santa debuts on Lifetime November 30th at 8/7c
