DETAILS on ION's Christmas Movies below via PRNewswire PRESS RELEASE:


ATLANTA, Oct. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Five new original holiday movies will premiere on ION and Bounce beginning Sunday, Nov. 21. In total, the Scripps Networks will combine to air over 200 hours of holiday movies and programming. Last year, ION ranked No. 1 among all networks airing original holiday programming. *

The new original Scripps Networks holiday movies for 2021:

Bounce

"Who is Christmas Eve?" - Premieres 8 p.m., Nov. 21

Eve Simons (Paige Audrey-Marie Hurd, Power Book II: Ghost, Hawaii Five-O) was abandoned as an infant on the steps of a church 30 years ago on Christmas Eve. Now, struggling to move forward with her life, she embarks on a search to uncover the mystery of her birth with the help of her boyfriend Chris (Romeo Miller, Romeo!, Empire) and famed investigative genealogist Pamela Slaton (Juliana Harkavy, Arrow). The movie is inspired by Slaton's work, and she serves as an executive producer. Paige Audrey-Marie Hurd serves as a co-executive producer.


ION

"Christmas Down Under" - Premieres 8 p.m., Nov. 21

After a fight with her husband (Paul O'Brien, Home & Away, Neighbors), a tightly wound wife (Justine Kacir, Home & Away) follows him to his hometown of Sydney, Australia, in hopes of saving their marriage. Tracking him down proves complicated, and she must rely on an Aboriginal tour guide and a social media influencer ride-share driver to help - all just days before Christmas.


"A Christmas Witness" - Premieres 8 p.m., Nov. 28

A no-nonsense federal marshal (Arielle Kebbel, Ballers, The Vampire Diaries) is tasked with protecting a low-level, charming mobster (Colin Egglesfield, Rizzoli & Isles, All My Children) until he testifies against his mafia boss two days after Christmas.


"The Christmas Thief" - Premieres 8 p.m., Dec. 5

Lana Lawton (Michelle Borth, Hawaii Five-O), a fledgling private eye home for the holidays, realizes the only way to save her career is by solving a string of local burglaries where the main suspect is Santa Claus. With little evidence and having to contend with a local detective with an investigative style that clashes with hers, the season may prove to be anything but holly and jolly. Vivica A. Fox co-stars as the head of a local detective agency.


"A New Lease on Christmas" - Premieres 8 p.m., Dec. 12

A single real estate agent (Clair Coffee, Grimm, Lincoln Rhymes - Hunt for the Bone Collector) falls for a handsome coffee shop owner (George Stults, 7th Heaven) - only to discover that the job she just took requires her to evict him from his shop.


In addition, Laff will air a week of primetime family-friendly holiday movies beginning Dec. 6 and Grit will present holiday-themed Westerns on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

********** End of Press Release **********



Do you see a Christmas movie you'd like to see? I think "A New Lease on Christmas" sounds interesting, plus it's fun to see George Stults again. Always liked him on the drama, 7th Heaven.

I also want to include a caution here. At this point, we don't know which movies will be family-friendly. Throughout the Christmas Season I will do my best to inform you if there is a storyline of concern, and if any of you who follow here catch something - please be sure to share in comments! I definitely want to include a BIG *Thank You* to all of the awesome reviewers here!


Joyous Christmas Blessings to You ~ 
All throughout the Year!

God bless us, everyone! Net

  2. These movies sound interesting but I'm a bit uneasy about the hero in A Christmas Witness.

    I wonder just what "a low-level, charming mobster" entails? - Florence

  5. The premise A Christmas Witness that you read was misleading. It's tamer than it sounds.

    1. Ashley, That is good to hear. The rating I shared was directly from ION's web-site. You never know with those. I've seen them be wrong before.

      If you catch this reply and have a minute, could you please give us a little more detail?
