TV One rings in the spirit of Christmas with two new movies for the holidays: Miss Me This Christmas and You Can’t Fight Christmas. Both movies take place at the fictional Chesterton Hotel, a classic landmark that is the epicenter of Christmas.
In You Can’t Fight Christmas the Chestertown Hotel is being all decked out for Christmas by Leslie Major, played by Brely Evans (Being Mary Jane, Born Again Virgin), who is the designer behind the Christmas magic. While decorating the hotel, Leslie finds out about the plans that Edmund James, played by Andra Fuller (Love By The 10th Date, Black Jesus), nephew of the hotel owner, and his uptight business partner and love interest Millicent (Persia White of Girlfriends fame), have to turn the old hotel into an upscale resort once Edmund inherits the hotel from his uncle. Scheming Millicent also has plans for Edmund that involve a wedding ring but Edmund may not be ready to take their partnership to the next level.
Leslie enlists her merry team of helpers to help save the hotel and in the process, shares more than a little Christmas spirit with Edmund, who hasn’t celebrated Christmas since his parents divorced around Christmastime when he was teen. Actress Marla Gibbs makes a special appearance in this holiday romance as one of the many hotel patrons who return to the homey Chesterton every Christmas season.
Can Leslie save the hotel and Christmas? Will Millicent get her way? Is Edmund going to find his Christmas cheer?
You Can’t Fight Christmas premieres Sunday, December 10 at 7/6C on TV One!
