For the holidays, Lifetime will air its first LGBTQ movie

Lifetime announced that it will air feature an LGBTQ romance this holiday season.

In “The Christmas Set Up,” “Hugo, a New York corporate lawyer and his best friend Madelyn head to Milwaukee to spend the holidays with his mom Kate, who is also in charge of the local Christmas celebrations. Ever the matchmaker, Kate arranges for Hugo to run into Patrick, Hugo’s high school friend and secret crush, who has recently returned after a successful stint in Silicon Valley. As they enjoy the local holiday festivities together, Hugo and Patrick’s attraction to each other is undeniable and it looks as though Kate’s well-intentioned Santa-style matchmaking is a success. But as Hugo receives word of a big promotion requiring a move to London, he must decide what is most important to him,” according to Deadline.

If you think about it, the plot isn’t far off from what I previously came up with.

In addition, Lifetime plans to air its first holiday movie centered on a Chinese-American family. That movie is titled “A Sugar & Spice Holiday.”

Deadline lists several of the new movies planned for “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime.”
