Eva Longoria, Jamie Foxx & Nick Cannon Set Up Holiday Movies At VH1

VH1 is launching a holiday movie slate and has drafted features from exec producers including Eva Longoria, Jamie Foxx and Nick Cannon.

The ViacomCBS network is launching its Naughty or Nice strand at the end of November through December with five made-for-television movies – Adventures in Christmasing, The Bitch Who Stole Christmas, Hip Hop Family Christmas, Let’s Get Merried and Miracles Across 125th Street.

Adventures in Christmasing centers around Parker Baldwin, a highly successful and meticulous talk show host who plans everything to a T, finds her Christmas plans upended when her network persuades her to spend three days in the wild with superstar adventurer & television survivalist Finn Holt for a holiday television event. The two butt heads until they find themselves stranded together in the wild with no food, unreliable shelter and no form of communication. Unexpectedly impacting each other, they come to realize life is the greatest adventure.

A story by Kim Fields and Rhonda Baraka, written by Baraka and directed by Troy A. Scott, it stars Fields, Adrian Holmes, Kel Mitchell, Eva Marcille and Jonathan Silverman.

MTV Entertainment Studios, Johnson Production Group, K-Lab Studios produce with Fields, Art Rutter and Timothy Johnson; Meghan Hooper, Josh Van Houdt and Janee Dabney exec producing. It launches November 29.

The Bitch Who Stole Christmas, which launches December 2, is “the draggiest Christmas movie ever made”. It follows a workaholic big-city fashion journalist is sent to a Christmas-obsessed small town to dig up a story when she finds herself in the middle of cut-throat housewives, a high-stakes “Winter Ball” competition, and a sinister plot that could destroy Christmas.
