If a dose of “The Young and the Restless’” Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla Winters) is just what you’ve been craving this holiday season, then get ready for your wish to come true! The former daytime star will be appearing in an upcoming original UP film titled “Marry Me for Christmas.”
The romantic, home-for-the-holidays feature follows Marci Jewel (Malinda Williams), the owner and creative director of an up-and-coming ad agency who’s happy about her life as a NYC single gal — until the holidays roll around! “While all of her cousins are married and having babies, Marci remains the lone holdout in the large Chandler family clan who has put marriage and motherhood on hold for the sake of her career,” states an official press release. “As the family’s epic Christmas celebration is about to start, Marci learns that her favorite cousin Dana (Tamara Bass), her husband Frankie (Jason Weaver) and their family are leaving the country for five years on missionary work. So at the last minute, Marci promises to come home for the holidays for the first time in years. With a deadline looming for a new client, she drags her employee Adam (Brad James) in tow to Atlanta and does the only thing she can do in the face of unbearable pressure from her ailing mom Stephanie (Rowell), aunt Myra (DeEtta West), uncle Donald (Greg Alan Williams) and cousin Preston (Carl Payne): fakes a fiancé.”
“While caught up in the family’s frenetic search for the perfect Christmas tree,” the release continues, “Unexpected wedding planning to her employee, pressing work calls and more, Marci learns some unexpected lessons about love, trust and family, particularly when it comes to her new faux fiancé Adam and old beaux Blair (Karon Riley).”
Watch for “Marry Me for Christmas” on Saturday, December 14 at 7PM EST on UP.
