UP’s Marry Me For Christmas with Malinda Williams

Airing tonight is the UP Original movie, ‘Marry Me For Christmas,’ starring Malinda Williams, Brad James, Victoria Rowell, Tamara Bass, DeEtta West, GregAlan Williams, and Carl Payne.
Smart, stylish Marci Jewel (Malinda Williams) is the owner and creative director of an up-and-coming ad agency and thrilled with her single life in New York – except during the holidays. While all of her cousins are married and having babies, Marci remains the lone holdout in the large Chandler family clan who has put marriage and motherhood on hold for the sake of her career. As the family’s epic Christmas celebration is about to start, Marci learns that her favorite cousin Dana (Tamara Bass), her husband Frankie (Jason Weaver) and their family are leaving the country for five years on missionary work. So at the last minute, Marci promises to come home for the holidays for the first time in years. With a deadline looming for a new client, she drags her employee Adam (Brad James) in tow to Atlanta and does the only thing she can do in the face of unbearable pressure from her ailing mom Stephanie (Victoria Rowell), aunt Myra (DeEtta West), uncle Donald (GregAlan Williams) and cousin Preston (Carl Payne): fakes a fiancé. While caught up in the family’s frenetic search for the perfect Christmas tree, unexpected wedding planning to her employee, pressing work calls and more, Marci learns some unexpected lessons about love, trust and family, particularly when it comes to her new faux fiancé Adam and old beaux Blair (Karon Riley).  Produced by Eric Tomosunas’ Swirl Films and Malinda Williams, Roger Melvin (UP’s Sugar Mommas, Love Will Keep Us Together) directs from a script by Rhonda Freeman-Baraka (UP’s Saving Westbrook High, Trinity Goodheart).  Marry Me For Christmas will premiere exclusively on UP on Saturday, December 14 at 7 p.m. EST, with encores at 9 and 11 p.m. EST. Check out the trailer below.
