Freeform Adds a Third Original Film to Their Popular Holiday Programming

Freeform announced today that production began Monday on their third original holiday film, “The Truth About Christmas,” from MarVista Entertainment. The movie will premiere during Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas” annual programming event. “The Truth About Christmas” joins previously announced holiday originals “Life Size 2,” starring Tyra Banks and Francia Raisa, and “No Sleep ‘Til Christmas” with Dave and Odette Annable.

Kali Hawk (“New Girl”) stars as Jillian, a successful political consultant, confident in her ability to put a spin on anything whose next big project is the upcoming mayoral campaign for her boyfriend, George (Damon Dayoub, Freeform’s “Stitchers”). On the way to meet George’s family for the first time during the holidays, an unusual confrontation with a toy store Santa results in a drastic change in Jillian where she can’t stop herself from wildly spilling the truth. Ali Ghandour (Freeform’s “Alone Together”) costars as George’s brother Blake, who believes you should always be true to yourself but thinks Jillian just might be losing it. Jillian must find a way to make it stop before her holidays, her job and her relationship are ruined.

“The Truth About Christmas” was written by Kelly Bowe (“Monte Carlo”) and directed by Jay Karas (“Alone Together”, “Teachers”). The movie is executive produced by Fernando Szew, Hannah Pillemer, and Gaylyn Fraiche.
