Lifetime is developing a Betty White Christmas movie… and I am here for it! Here’s the deal – they’ve announced that they have 50 movie projects to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Lifetime Movies. The network announced projects with Jamie Lee Curtis, Kelly Rowland, Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez in a press release yesterday. The projects will begin premiering this month.
Betty White will star in an untitled Christmas movie in which she “helps whip would-be Santas into shape” and spreads “the true meaning of Christmas.” In addition, Kelly Rowland will executive produce and star in Merry Liddle Christmas Wedding, a sequel to her 2019 movie Merry Liddle Christmas. Melissa Joan Hart will direct Feliz NaviDad, a holiday movie starring Mario Lopez. Lifetime is also developing a third Harry & Meghan movie, Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace, which explores Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to step back from the royal family. Jamie Lee Curtis will executive produce, star in and direct the new film How We Sleep at Night: The Sara Cunningham Story, about a devout Christian mother who comes “to terms with her son being gay.” Robin Roberts will executive produce A Home of Their Own, a documentary about foster parents Jolene Schlander and Calvin Wield.
