While things may be dire in Salem, there’s a lot to laughter soon to hit BET+.
Like all the holidays that precede it, Christmas in Salem is sure to be drama-filled. But for the fan whose taste leans more towards merry than mayhem, Days of our Lives star Jackée Harry may have just the thing for you.
Jackée Harry To Appear In So Fly Christmas
The actress who portrays Paulina Price took to Instagram on Monday to promote her soon-to-premiere yuletide flick, So Fly Christmas, sharing both a trailer and a message that read, “Y’all ready for this?! I had so much fun with the hilarious [Tichina Arnold] & [Tami Roman] filming “So Fly Christmas.” Can’t wait for you to see it! 11/23 on [BET+] 🎁”
Per BET+, the Clarence William IV-penned film follows, “Wyvetta [Arnold], who loses her love on her favorite holiday when she is stood up at the altar on Christmas Eve. To show solidarity, Wyvetta’s best friend, Dione [Roman], suggests that the two of them renounce love. Things become complicated when Dione falls for a mild-mannered record store owner and tries to keep it under wraps.”
In addition to Harry, Arnold, and Roman, So Fly Christmas stars DYNASTY‘s Robert Christopher Riley, Laurissa Romain, Tommy Davidson, and Michael Colya.
Said Marvin Neil, VP Content Programming and Strategy BET+ in a statement to Deadline, “There is a huge appetite for genre storytelling within our community, and we saw a lack of holiday content centered around the Black experience in the marketplace. We intentionally set out to fill that gap and are proud to offer original holiday titles featuring audience favorites like Jasmine Guy, Robin Givens, Tami Roman, Tichina Arnold, and Ms. Pat, both in front of and behind the camera. Their creative contributions, we believe, make our 12 original holiday titles even more special for our subscribers.”
