It's wonderful to see the UP Network will be adding again this year to the new original Christmas Movies coming to our TVs this UPcoming Christmas Season! I have previously reported to you the Christmas movie below starring Lacey Chabert. The film was previously titled: Christmas Tree Farm, but it has been re-named: The Tree that Saved Christmas.
3 New Original Christmas Movies
via UP Press Release:
MISTLETOE RADIO (UP Premiere Movie) Premieres in November – Pepper Sweeney, a cynical radio show host in New York, gets suspended and begins working at a station in Harrison, Nebraska. Samantha McCoy, another radio host in Harrison, is unapologetically romantic and nostalgic, especially at Christmastime. She is immediately at odds with Pepper who never met a sentiment he couldn’t twist into a punch line and has no use for Christmas. When Samantha and Pepper’s “war of words” catches the attention of the small town, their joint show becomes a hit and they start to see something in each other brought to the surface by the romantic holiday season.

"The Tree that Saved Christmas"
THE TREE THAT SAVED CHRISTMAS (UP Original Movie) Premieres in December – Annie Logan grew up on a Christmas tree farm in rural Vermont. One day, as sickly trees were being cut down, Annie ran and saved her favorite even after the axe had made a gash in the trunk. Now, in her late twenties, Annie is living in Manhattan pursuing her writing career. Annie is devastated when she learns from her brother that the bank is foreclosing on her parents’ tree farm and all the trees will be cut down to make way for a golf course. A depressed Annie has to prepare her boss's home for the holidays and she orders a seven-foot tree. Much to her shock, she sees a distinctive gash on the trunk of the beautiful tree that is delivered. Certain that it is the tree of her youth (and a sign), Annie grabs “her” tree and travels back to Vermont to help her parents save the farm. Stars Lacey Chabert (Matchmaker Santa) and Corey Sevier (Cedar Cove).
PAPER ANGELS (UP Premiere Movie) Premieres in December – Based on the book by country star Jimmy Wayne that describes how the Salvation Army Angel Tree program for needy kids helps two families find hope during the Christmas season. Abused wife Lynn takes her two kids and leaves her alcoholic husband, moving to another town. In that same town, we meet Kevin, whose company is on the brink of shutting down due to the economy. He is married to Jenny, who is in a difficult pregnancy with twins. Lynn's son, Thomas, starts a new school and becomes the target of a bully who is threatened by how well Thomas plays basketball. Unable to join the high school team, Thomas goes to the community center where he meets Kevin and the two of them become unlikely friends. Little do they know the tremendous impact they will have on each other’s family. Stars Josie Bissett (Christmas with Tucker).
