Summer is officially over, which means it’s time for holiday movies. On Monday, September 24, Lifetime announced its full lineup of holiday movies, which include celebs such as Sarah Drew, Vanessa Lachey, Megan Hilty, Melissa Joan Hart and many castmembers of One Tree Hill.
The Christmas Contract stars One Tree Hill alum Hilarie Burton, Robert Buckley, Danneel Ackles, Tyler Hilton and Antwon Tanner. Here’s the synopsis: “It’s Jolie’s (Burton) first time going back home to Louisiana since her devastating break up with Foster (Hunter Burke). Seeing him is inevitable as their parents run the town’s annual Christmas Market together, but when she discovers Foster is bringing home a new girlfriend, Jolie cannot bear the thought of going home alone and seeing them together. Her best friend Naomi (Ackles) suggests that Jolie bring her flaky brother, Jack (Buckley), home for Christmas as he has no plans this year. Jolie, a professional web designer, is hesitant; so, Naomi, a lawyer, creates a Christmas contract to give them both something they want—a buffer for those awkward moments around Jolie’s ex and a website to help sell Jack’s upcoming novel. Unbeknownst to them, the Christmas contract proves to be so much more than what they signed up for.”
The movie, set to air Thursday, November 22, at 8 p.m. ET, will be directly followed by ‘Tis the Season: A One Tree Hill Cast Reunion, in which Burton, Hilton, Ackles and Tanner will reunite along with alum Stephen Colletti (of Lifetime’s Hometown Christmas) for an evening of fun that will include some surprise guests.
