Oprah Winfrey Network’s (OWN’s) first original holiday movie, One Fine Christmas, premieres on Friday, November 15. Rick Fox and his daughter Sasha Fox, who are acting together for the first time, are among the stars in the ensemble cast, as are beloved actress Marla Gibbs and fan favorite Vanessa Williams. Two other holiday films, Carole’s Christmas and Baking Christmas, will air on the network on November 22 and 29, respectively.

One Fine Christmas tells the story of families living on Christmas Street who have been so busy with their day-to-day activities that they lose sight of the importance of family during the holiday season. Haley (Sasha Fox) comes home for the Christmas holiday, but it has has not been the same place since her family split up. Haley’s mother, Susan (Williams), is working on a new work deal with her client (Rick Fox) that causes her to have little time for Haley or her own mother, Alice (Gibbs). Al (Mark Christopher Lawrence) is too preoccupied with work and overlooks his wife, Matty (June Carryl). Meanwhile, Bob (Rodney Van Johnson) and Diana’s (Eva La Dare) son, Jesse (Alfonso Torres Caballero), comes home with a very special surprise. This “slice of life” holiday tale shares the individual stories of these neighbors as they celebrate Christmas Eve and find themselves unexpectedly united for the holiday season. Check out a preview below:

Watch One Fine Christmas on Friday, November 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, 8 p.m. CT on OWN.
