For Annual It's a Wonderful Lifetime
Holiday Slate
...with Patti LaBelle, Keshia Knight Pulliam,
Brooke Elliott, Mario Lopez,
Jana Kramer and Cheri Oteri!


Movie: A New Orleans Noel

Starring: Keshia Knight Pulliam, Brad James, Patti LaBelle & Tim Reid

Storyline: Grace Hill (Pulliam) and Anthony Brown (James) could not be more different. Despite having gone to college to study architecture together, their lives took them on completely separate paths. However, when they’re both hired to work together on the home of Loretta Brown (LaBelle)—a New Orleans praline icon —the two find themselves working together at Christmas...and butting heads over more than just architecture. When Anthony and his family discover that Grace will be celebrating Christmas alone, they invite her to take part in their traditions and their celebrations. Soon, fiercely independent Grace begins to learn the importance of family and community, while modern Anthony learns to embrace tradition and the magic of Christmas. But when Grace is offered a new job far away from New Orleans she’ll have to decide if she’ll leave, or follow her heart.

Tim Reid stars as Marcel Lirette, a handsome, retired friend who moves back to town after years away and catches the eye of Lorretta.


Movie: A Country Christmas Harmony

Starring: Brooke Elliott, Brandon Quinn & Danny Pintauro

Storyline: Before Chrissy Kessler's (Elliott) meteoric rise to fame, the country music superstar was just a small-town girl with dreams of the big time. Now, with her record sales on a rapid decline, Chrissy is strong-armed by an unrelenting record executive to return to the hometown she left behind to perform a live Christmas concert. Accompanying her on this journey is her longtime supportive assistant Eugene (Pintauro). Luke Covington's (Quinn) quiet life is suddenly disrupted when he runs into Chrissy, his ex-girlfriend and former country music duo partner, who disappeared on him to pursue her solo career, all those years ago. After a tempestuous rainstorm forces the ex-sweethearts to seek shelter in Luke’s ranch home, the two realize that the only way they’ll survive the holidays is with the other one’s help.


Movie: Untitled Mario Lopez/Jana Kramer Holiday Movie

Starring: Mario Lopez, Jana Kramer, Cheri Oteri & Courtney Lopez

Storyline: Former Broadway star, Billy Holiday (Lopez), returns to his hometown for Christmas after being abruptly fired as the host-producer-judge of the hit TV series “Celebrity Dance Off.” While there, he encounters Rae (Kramer), the charismatic owner of the local dance studio, where Billy’s 12-year-old nephew is her standout student. This Christmas Rae is planning a dance recital fundraiser with the goal of taking her students to see a Broadway show in New York City. Billy volunteers to help Rae with the recital by reviving the town’s traditional Christmas Eve show which was once a showcase for local talent. With Billy’s knack for producing and Rae’s knowledge of all things local, their collaboration clicks, and romantic sparks start flying!

Cheri Oteri stars as Dallas, Billy's high-powered, fast talking Hollywood agent and Mario's real-life wife, Courtney Lopez stars as Joanna, the charismatic host of “Celebrity Dance Off” who has just replaced Billy as executive producer and head judge.


It's interesting to see Lifetime announce this Christmas movie news on the last day of February. We've already been hearing about some Hallmark Christmas movies in production, too, on social media, etc... As soon as those are officially announced by Hallmark, I'll be sure to share details on those, as well.

Since Lifetime is already announcing this Christmas news so early, I'm wondering how many new Christmas movies we may end up with this year. The competition is, indeed, already on! And to be honest, I'm still watching new holiday movies from last season.

Please be sure to share your thoughts in comments below. Are you ready for Christmas movie news for the 2022 season???

Blessings, Net


  1. This is beyond belief - announcing new Christmas movies at the beginning of March.

    Like Net we have around 25 Christmas movies from 2021 still to watch - the majority of them Lifetime.

    Being honest about it the Lifetime movies aren't that good but you do get the odd gem - like Ghosts Of Christmas Past.

    The Jana Kramer/ Mario Lopez pairing looks like one of the biggest mismatches in history - maybe I'll be proved wrong - Florence

  2. I too am still watching some 2021 new Christmas movies. Lets get through spring and summer and fall...then Christmas. I love Christmas movies but hate the weather that usually goes with it.

  3. I am wondering if competition from the new GAC and also the wonderful UP Networks are causing this early release news?
    Personally I would prefer Hallmark went back to Quality instead of quantity.. their storylines are so repetitious and they are using and reusing the same actor and actresses too often.. we really need some variety .
