IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS AS FREEFORM'S 'KICKOFF TO CHRISTMAS' NEW MONTH-LONG PROGRAMMING EVENT STARTS NOV. 1

Freeform's New Original Film, 'The Truth About Christmas,' From MarVista Entertainment, Is Set to Air on Sunday, Nov. 25

New Expanded Programming Event Gets Viewers Ready for the Biggest Holiday Stunt on Television, Freeform's '25 Days of Christmas'

As the Halloween season comes to a close, Freeform will continue to be the home for all holiday programming as the brand-new "Kickoff To Christmas" programming event starts on NOV. 1. Adding a month full of holiday fun, the programming event will also include the premiere of the Freeform original film "The Truth About Christmas," from MarVista Entertainment, airing SUNDAY, NOV. 25 at 9:00-11:00 p.m. EST/PST.

In "The Truth About Christmas," Kali Hawk ("New Girl") stars as Jillian, a successful political consultant confident in her ability to put a spin on anything, whose next big project is the upcoming mayoral campaign for her boyfriend George (Damon Dayoub, Freeform's "Stitchers"). On the way to meet George's family for the first time during the holidays, an unusual confrontation with a toy store Santa results in a drastic change in Jillian where she can't stop herself from wildly spilling the truth. Ali Ghandour (Freeform's "Alone Together") co-stars as George's brother Blake, who believes you should always be true to yourself but thinks Jillian just might be losing it. Jillian must find a way to make it stop before her holidays, her job and her relationship are ruined.
