The New Comedy Stars BJ Britt, Brittany Hall, Carl Anthony Payne II, and Christopher B. Duncan

TV One’s new original holiday film CHRISTMAS DILEMMA is set for Sunday, December 6, 2020 at 7 P.M. ET/ 6C with an immediate encore at 9 P.M. ET/ 8C. The film marks the first project directed by Essence Atkins and builds on the actor’s longstanding relationship with TV One. As an actor, Atkins’ TV One credits include original films such as Girlfriend’s Getaway and its sequel, along with Coins For Christmas, and Coins For Love. Filmed in Atlanta, the movie stars BJ Britt (Being Mary JaneAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Brittany Hall (BallersSatisfaction) , Carl Anthony Payne II (Martin5th Ward), and Christopher B. Duncan (Black LightningThe Jamie Foxx Show).

“I am blessed to have the opportunity to collaborate with TV One once again to direct my first movie,” remarked Atkins. “I am immeasurably grateful for the opportunity to helm a film that I can declare I’m proud of. This entire experience has taught me so much and was a true delight.”

“This will undoubtedly be a different kind of holiday, so we thought an offbeat Christmas comedy was the perfect choice,” remarked Robyn Green Arrington, VP Programming and Production. “Additionally, having consistency behind-the-scenes during this unpredictable time was a must, so working long-time production partner, Swirl was a no-brainer. Continuing our tradition of giving deserving and prepared talent an opportunity to diversify, made the decision to have Essence Atkins at the helm of this movie easy.”

TRAILER

CHRISTMAS DILEMMA follows a newlywed couple Jay (Britt) and Monica (Hall) as they struggle to decide which set of in-laws they should join for their first Christmas. After each pleads their case and even attempts a little trickery, they decide to bypass the guaranteed disappointment of picking one family over the other. Unbeknownst to them, the decision is made for them when their families show up at their home unexpectedly. Drama ensues as the in-laws clash, long-lost relatives decide to make an appearance, and Jay’s grandmother joins the holiday festivities accompanied her caretaker who just happens to be Jay’s gorgeous ex-girlfriend.

CHRISTMAS DILEMMA cast includes: BJ Britt as Jay, Brittany Hall as Monica, Carl Anthony Payne II as Eddie, Christopher B. Duncan as Howard

CHRISTMAS DILEMMA is a movie I feel I can watch over and over. I loved the cast, a beautiful cast. I loved the main characters and their newly wed relationship. They had their dilemmas but the root of the family trials was to center it back to love. That was a great message and also how to blend two families together. It was a fun and funny holiday film and relatable. It wasn’t too corny or over the top like some holiday movies can be. This film not only put me in the holiday spirit, but it makes understand the true meaning of love and family. Let the holiday cheer begin and watch this family with your loved ones too!
