If you love The Facts of Life, the cast is giving you the ultimate Christmas present! The cast is coming back together for a new Lifetime Christmas movie. Kim Fields (Dorothy “Tootie” Ramsey) is the film’s executive producer and will star in the film. She reportedly got Lisa Whelchel (Blair), Mindy Cohn (Natalie), and Nancy McKeon (Jo) to star in the new film as well.
The movie is called You Light Up My Christmas. It will premiere on December 1, 2019, on the Lifetime Channel. It is part of Lifetime’s “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime” holiday movie lineup. Kim spoke out about having her “sisters” back together again.
Kim Fields shared how amazing it is the work with the ladies again
She said, according to PEOPLE, “It’s been amazing to work together again and have the ladies’ input on their characters from their wardrobe to names, as well as provide fun inside jokes for fans. I also had the production name the ice-skating rink in the movie after our dear friend, Charlotte Rae, who passed away last year (and played Edna Garrett on both The Facts of Life and Diff’rent Strokes). We truly are a family so it was great to work together on something new!”
The movie is actually inspired by true events, like many Lifetime films.
According to PEOPLE, “You Light Up My Christmas, inspired by true events, tells the story of Emma (Fields), who returns to her hometown, built around her family’s pioneer Christmas factory, two weeks before Christmas. To her horror, she finds that the lights in the once festive town have gone dim — prompting her to reconnect with a former flame (Adrian Holmes) and reignite the town with holiday cheer.”
In addition, Lifetime is premiering 30 holiday-themed movies and a holiday special. The festivities begin on October 25 and will continue until Christmas. What do you think about the cast of The Facts of Life reuniting for a new film? Will you be watching?
