UPtv has announced its Christmas lineup, which includes 8 new movies and 45 days of holiday programming. The films will include a musical featuring Gaither, as well as rom-coms starring Jessica Sipos, Franco Lo Presti, Peter Porte, Colin Mochrie, Mary Antonini, and Enrico Colantoni.
Up first is We’re Scrooged, starring Tamara Duarte and Andrew Bushell. In this rom-com, Duarte and Bushell play former high-school sweethearts who return to Minneapolis for their Christmas-themed high school reunion.
After a run-in at the kickoff event, they are both warned that they are going to be visited by three Christmas ghosts over the next three days.
While dreaming each night, they have shared experiences reliving their past and present Christmases. These unsettling yet comedic visits help them both see what they gave up. When the Ghost of Christmas Future visits them separately, they must decide whether to reunite or lose their love forever.
Christmas Time Capsule
Emily Alatalo stars as Tiffany, who is secretly in love with her best friend, James (played by Franco Lo Presti). When James asks her for the family heirloom engagement ring he left in her care, Tiffany realizes he is getting ready to propose to someone else.
She sets off on a road trip to stop the engagement and work up her nerve to tell James how she really feels.
Country Hearts Christmas
In this sequel to the UPtv movie Country Hearts, the Jameson family is preparing to celebrate the holidays when Tori and June are offered a chance to appear on a live Christmas Eve show. They know the appearance could give them a huge career boost, but it would also mean missing Christmas with the family on the farm.
Chesapeake Shores star Jessica Sipos stars as Kate Snow, a woman who loves all things Christmas and runs a gift shop that has been in her family for generations.
But her Christmas cheer is put on hold when she finds out that a developer is trying to take over the businesses in town. The situation becomes even worse after she realizes that the handsome stranger she encountered on the bus (played by Markian Tarasiuk) is the developer in question.
