This Christmas is going to be an entertaining White one. Lifetime Network announced what viewers could look forward to until the end of the year - and it includes Betty White starring in a Lifetime Christmas movie.
Lifetime Network announced the premiere of 50 original movies between this month and the end of the year, and Christmas will bring all the joy that is legendary actress Betty White.
A BETTY WHITE CHRISTMAS
The 98-year-old “Golden Girl” will return to the screen as a sassy drill sergeant working at Christmas Bootcamp, and she sets out to get the aspiring Santas into shape while spreading the true meaning of this special holiday.
The movie may not have a title yet, but fans can look forward to another masterful portrayal by the actress who became known for her ditzy characters with a straight but sweet disposition.
STILL GOING STRONG
While Betty initially became known for her role in “The Golden Girls,” she spent eight decades working in the industry so far. Included are memorable characters in shows like “Hot in Cleveland,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Betty White Show,” and her most recent role in the film animation “Toy Story 4.”
However, Betty also made other kinds of appearances in recent times; the type that earned her the nickname of “B-dog.”
When the NFL kicked off their 100th season in August last year, Betty starred in a promotional video and hilariously made sure that everyone knew that only one thing that kicks more buttocks than the NFL, is her.
MORE ORIGINAL VIEWING FROM LIFETIME
Apart from the upcoming Christmas flick starring the winner of five Primetime Emmy Awards, the network will also release a true story called “How We Sleep at Night: The Sara Cunningham Story.”
Centered around a Christian mother coming to terms with having a gay son, it will star Jamie Lee Curtis, who will also direct and executive produce the movie.
Another production to look forward to is the third installment of the “Harry & Meghan” series, which will focus on the royal couple’s decision to step down as senior working members of the royal family at the beginning of this year.
A new biography about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is also set for release on August 11. Titled "Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan, and the Making of a Modern Royal Family," the book is co-written by royal editor Omid Scobie and writer Carolyn Durand.
According to Omid, the book will give a glimpse into the "true story" of Meghan and Prince Harry's lives and provide clarity on "misreported stories."
