Tami Roman has inked a deal to star in and executive produce the upcoming BET+ Christmas movie Whatever It Takes.

The original film combines “comedy, drama, and the warmth of the holiday spirit,” according to the official description.

“We wanted to create a film that would not only entertain, but also resonate with people during the holiday season,” Roman said in a press release Wednesday. “It’s a story that showcases the beauty of love and the power of forgiveness, even in the face of the most challenging situations.”

The movie comes from Swirl Films and Roman Ramsey Productions, which was co-founded by Tami Roman and Jill Ramsey.

“As a female-led production company, it is our mission to always give the proper representation of other women – especially Black women. This film encompasses that – light hearted, romance, fun, intertwined with real life circumstances nonetheless,” said Ramsey.

Swirl Films is also co-producing the upcoming true crime film series Love & Murder: Atlanta Playboy starring Taye Diggs for BET+, while Roman Ramsey produced BET’s Haus of Vicious.

Eric Tomosunas, co-founder of Swirl Films, said Whatever It Takes “will connect with viewers and inspire them to treasure the time they spend with their loved ones, especially around the holidays!”

The dramedy is directed by Tailiah Breon and written by TuShonda Whitaker and Amaleka McCall Brathwaite. In addition to Roman, Ramsey, and Tomosunas, executive producers include Devin Griffin, Marvin Neil and Louisa Bates.

Whatever It Takes is set to premiere this winter on BET+.
