The cast is complete and has been announced! The Christmas in Mississippi cast is set and anticipants of the Lifetime movie will be excited to find out who is on the list. Here’s what you need to know about the Christmas in Mississippi Lifetime movie and the cast prior to it’s airing on Lifetime tonight!
One Tree Hill actress Jana Kramer, 33, is back in a new holiday TV movie! She will be playing photographer Holly Logan, who returns from her hometown of Gulfport, Mississippi for the holidays to help resurrect the town festival, after the area was destroyed five years earlier from a terrible hurricane. During her efforts, she is forced to work with the man who broke her heart, Mike, and as she begins to develop a newfound love for her hometown, feelings for Mike also begin to resurface! Kramer took to Instagram to share the Christmas in Mississippi trailer saying, “My movie trailer!!!!! It’s December!!!! Which means my @lifetimetv movie premiers this month! December 9th. 8/7c. Hope you love it as much as I do!!!” She certainly is excited for this project of hers and we can’t wait to see her star in it!
Madisonville-based producer Daniel Lewis says the story tells of “a true Christmas in the South. Everyone who’s lived in the South long enough knows we rarely have a white Christmas.” He added that the new movie will be a “change of pace” from the traditional snowy Christmas movies. Despite the lack of snow, Gulfport Mayor Bill Hewes said the show succeeded at creating its own version of holiday magic. “It’s well shot, the setting is great, the light looks great–the city really shines in this story, and it’s well cast. I think it’s going to be a very likable holiday movie hopefully for years to come.” The cast members also include Wes Brown as Mike, Faith Ford as Caroline, and Trace Masters as Jack.
What Is This Adorable Holiday Flick About?
According to the summaries given online (which really don’t reveal too much), Christmas in Mississippi centers around the character of Holly (played by Kramer) who returns to her hometown to help with a light show. But when she sees Mike (her high school sweetheart who scorned her) is organizing it, she has second thoughts about helping out. With help from her mother and Mr. Kriss, Holly falls in love with the town, and Mike, all over again. Yes, it sounds like the ultimate holiday chick-flick and fans are eating it right up!
