OWN will celebrate Christmas with two original holiday movies starring LeToya Luckett and Finesse Mitchell, and Eva Marcille with Devale Ellis.
The Great Holiday Bake War stars Luckett (as Brianna) and Mitchell (as Julian) — as former pastry school rivals. The two meet years later in a TV baking competition, and the sparks — and the flour fly. Each has their own plans for taking home the top prize, but only one can win, unless they work together. They learn that collaboration can create a new recipe for success — and love.
The film is produced for OWN by MarVista Entertainment in association with Harpo Films. Executive producers include Carla Gardini, Neshama Entertainment’s Suzanne Berger and Arnie Zipursky, and Megan Ellstrom, Larry Grimaldi, Hannah Pillemer and Fernando Szew for MarVista Entertainment. Lauren Tuck is a co-producer.
The Great Holiday Bake War premieres Saturday, Dec. 3 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.
A Christmas Fumble features Marcille ( as Nicole Barnes) and Ellis ( as Jordan Davie”). The “queen of crisis management,” Nicole gets the toughest assignment of her career when she’s asked to handle a breaking scandal for former pro footballer-turned-TV-commentator Jordan Davies. Jordan’s network contract isn’t going to be renewed because of a violation going back to his college days. Nicole fails to disclose that she and Jordan were once boyfriend and girlfriend — a conflict of interest that could end her own hopes of being made partner at her firm. To make matters worse, Nicole’s efforts to rehabilitate Jordan’s image are constantly undermined by Jordan’s shallow entertainment reporter fiancée.
