Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, watch out! Christmas comes in June.
This week, the UP tv production team travels up North to begin filming an upcoming holiday film tentatively titled “My One Christmas Wish” starring actress Amber Riley. The family-friendly network released a press release about the movie based on a true story today.
“UP announced today that actress/singer Amber Riley (‘Glee’) has been cast to star – and sing — in the lead role in the original UP Premiere Movie ‘My One Christmas Wish’ (working title), an emotional drama inspired by the real-life story of driven, straight-A college student Jackie Turner, whose loneliness during the holidays drives her to post a heartbreaking want ad for a family at Christmas on craigslist.”
The heart-wrenching film will be apart of the “Everything You Love About Christmas” programming schedule in November.
