This is the beginning of the holiday season and the UP Network kicks it off with several new original movies that will get you in the mood. Angels in the Snow, starring Chris Potter and Kristy Swanson, premieres Sunday night at 9 p.m. and is followed each weekend by a new uplifting holiday film.
Here’s the synopsis:
Charles (Chris Potter) and Judith Montgomery (Kristy Swanson) have a strained marriage mostly due to Charles’ non-stop work schedule. Their children, Alexander (Nick Purcha), Jennifer (Lizzie Boys) and Emily (Jaeda Lily Miller) sense the tension and fight amongst themselves, as well.
They are headed to the lavish cabin that Charles built for his family in the hopes of having a special family holiday. But the bickering continues until Joe (Colin Lawrence) and Marilyn Tucker (Catherine Lough Haggquist) and their children Lucie (Alexandra Siouras) and Robbie (Kolton Stewart) are forced to spend Christmas with them as they wait out a blizzard.
The love, respect and happiness exhibited by the Tuckers has a profound effect on the Montgomerys’ lives.
Angels in the Snow is a MarVista Entertainment and Odyssey Media production. Produced by Kirk Shaw and Devi Singh, it is directed by George Erschbamer. The movie is an adapted screenplay by Julie Brazier, based on novel by Rexanne Becnel.
