The stars of the “Facts of Life” are reuniting for a special Lifetime movie for the holidays, the network announced in a press release Monday.
“Light Up My Christmas” will feature Kim Fields, Mindy Cohn, Lisa Whelchel and Nancy McKeon, with Fields as executive producers
BUT this isn’t a reboot. The ladies will not playing Tootie, Natalie, Blair and Jo. Instead they will all play new roles in the movie inspired by a true story. Two weeks before Christmas, Emma (played by Fields) comes back to her hometown, which was built around her family’s Christmas factory. Alas, the lights have dimmed in the town — and as she tries to make things bright and beautiful again, she connects with a former love, played by Adrian Holmes.
“Light Up My Christmas,” which airs Dec. 1, is part of Lifetime’s all-day holiday programming event.
