Lifetime Announces 2 Christmas Movies with LGBTQ and Asian-American Characters



Also slated is A Sugar & Spice Holiday, which is centered around a Chinese-American family. The movie is about a rising architect name Suzie, who is guilted into entering a local gingerbread house competition in her hometown of Maine following the tragic death of her grandmother — who was a well-known baker in their community.

Both films are in the process of casting and will begin production this month, Deadline reported.

In addition, Tiffany Haddish will executive-produce the film Christmas Unwrapped, and Melissa Joan Hart will star in Dear Christmas, also slated for this winter. Lifetime's holiday programming will reportedly feature 30 new movies in total.

Of the new projects, Amy Winter, EVP and head of programming of Lifetime and Lifetime Movie Network, said: "We are thrilled to continue our legacy of creating a holiday destination that is welcoming to all at Lifetime. With more new movies than any one cable network for steamer, I couldn't be prouder of the incredible talent joining us in front of, and behind the camera, on these new holiday movies."

Lifetime's full slate of holiday films will be released in September.
