The First LGBTQ Lifetime Christmas Movie Is Set In Maine
Lots of holiday cheer comes your way when this movie debuts on Sunday night at 8 PM!
Back in November. Lifetime announced their annual slate of Christmas movies, bombarding us all with 35 of them! With the title "It's a Wonderful Lifetime" you will get your binge-worthy fill of these movies, which all seem to have the same plot.
Here is an example: A stressed-out and jaded advertising executive comes from the big city, to travel home for the holidays, to her sleepy little town, where her parents operate a Christmas Tree farm. Then, she then reconnects with an old flame, falls in love, and discovers the true spirit of the holidays. I am sort of close right?
This Sunday night at 8 PM, Lifetime breaks new ground with their first LGBTQ Christmas movie called "Under the Christmas Tree" Here is their description of the plot:
Marketing whiz Alma Beltran (Elise Bauman) and Christmas tree whisperer Charlie Freemont (Tattiawna Jones) cross paths when Charlie finds the perfect tree for the Maine Governor’s Holiday Celebration – right in Alma’s back yard. While they initially spar, romantic sparks soon begin to fly between the two women as the enchanting tree and some Christmas fairy dust from the town’s pâtissière extraordinaire (Ricki Lake) bring out the best in them and spark each other to take leaps of faith and fight for love and Christmas magic.
We are guessing the Governor will be fictional, so probably no Janet Mills cameo in this one.
Catch "Under the Christmas Tree" this Sunday at 8 PM, Monday, at 12 AM, and Tuesday at 6 PM.
