Tentatively titled Mr. Holiday, this movie stars Mario Lopez (Feliz NaviDAD, Holiday In Santa Fe), and Jana Kramer (One Tree Hill, The Holiday Fix-Up). In addition, Mario’s real-life wife, Cortney Lopez (I Love Us, Saved By The Bell), and Cheri Oteri (Saturday Night Live, Love Virtually) also star in this holiday movie.
Here is what we know about this upcoming holiday movie.
David Kendall (Country Comfort, Sydney To The Max) is the director. Aliza Murrieta (Feliz NaviDAD) and Peter Murrieta (Mr. Iglesias, One Day At A Time) wrote the script.
What Is This It’s A Wonderful Lifetime Movie About?
Mario Lopez and Jana Kramer are going to be in an upcoming holiday movie. What is this movie, tentatively named Mr. Holiday, about?
According to the Lifetime synopsis, former Broadway star, Billy Holiday (Lopez), returns to his hometown for Christmas. He was abruptly fired as the host-producer-judge of the hit TV series Celebrity Dance Off.
This is a public embarrassment. While he is back home, his high-powered agent, Dallas (Oteri) continues to find ways to spin this dismissal.
Life gets more complicated for Billy as he finds out who replaced him. It is Joanna (Courtney Lopez), the charismatic host of Celebrity Dance Off. Now, she is the new producer and head judge!
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 to take her students to see a Broadway show in New York City.
Therefore, 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!
