The UP Original Christmas Movie Musical ‘My One Christmas Wish’ will bring Christmas Spirit and Music our way, with star Amber Riley, Matreya Fedor, Ali Skovbye, Jarod Joseph, Priscilla Faia, and Ken Tremblett. Hallmark fans may recognize Ali Skovbye, from the Hallmark Hall of Fame Christmas Movie ‘One Christmas Eve’ and the Mystery Series ‘Gourmet Detective’, and Matreya Fedor from the TV Series Cedar Cove.
Via The Hollywood Reporter: “The TV movie musical is inspired by the true story of Jackie Turner, a straight-A college student who turns to Craigslist to post a want ad to find a family with whom she can celebrate Christmas.
The official telepic description follows:
Jackie Turner is a straight-A college student, who was abused, abandoned and starved as a child. Although she has resolutely turned her life around, the holidays are still very painful for her. Facing another lonely holiday break on campus, Jackie takes an ad on Craigslist for My ONE CHRISTMAS Wish – a family for Christmas – and even offers to pay $8 an hour. To her surprise, responses flood in. Among the numerous heartfelt invitations and letters of support, she also hears from other young people struggling with the same overwhelming emptiness that comes with spending the holidays without loved ones. Moved and inspired, Jackie decides to throw a big Christmas party – with the last-minute help of her adviser, friends and support group – to find families for all those troubled folks who emailed her, and finds one for herself as well.”
You can look forward to seeing this movie in November on UP!
