OWN is getting into the holiday spirit with a slate of new movies, the cable network announced Monday.
First up is One Fine Christmas, which centers on a group of families living on Christmas Street. The busy neighbors have lost sight of the importance of spending time with their loved ones during the holiday season, yet as they celebrate Christmas Eve, they find themselves unexpectedly united for the holiday season.
The film stars Rick Fox and his daughter Sasha Fox, marking the first time the two have acted together.
Veteran actress Marla Gibbs, Vanessa Williams, Mark Christopher Lawrence, June Carryl, Rodney Van Johnson, Eva La Dare, and Alfonso Torres Caballero round out the ensemble cast.
Next is Carole’s Christmas, starring Jackée Harry and Kimberly Elise.
The film tells the story of Carole Jordan (Elise), an overworked businesswoman who learns the meaning of “be careful what you wish for.” When Carole’s wish for a different path in life is granted, her world gets turned upside down and the only person she can confide in is Iris (Harry), a woman she recognizes from her “past life.”
Cayden K. Williams, Bianca Buck and Anthony Montgomery also star in the film.
The third film in the slate is Baking Christmas. It follows Patty (Aloma Wright), the founder of a popular bakery, who announces her plan to retire at the end of the year, forcing her children to take over the business.
While each is qualified to run the enterprise, the only way to make sure the shop ends up in the right hands is with a Christmas cake bakeoff. Tim Reid, Khalilah Joi, Leigh-Ann Rose, Arnell Powell, and Yohance Myles also star.
Below are the premiere dates for the three films.
One Fine Christmas premieres Friday, November 15, 9/8c on OWN
