Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKellar Headline Great American Family's Christmas 2023
Updated: Sep 20
They are among several Christian leading ladies who will star in the channel's Yuletide programming.
Great American Family will release a record 20 new Christmas movies this year, which is two more than it put out in 2022. The new productions make up part of the channel's third annual Great American Christmas, a non-stop holiday programming parade that gets underway on October 20th, believe it or not.
Candace Cameron Bure, who is both the cable channel's top on-air talent and its Chief Creative Officer, will star as an army reserve doctor in My Christmas Hero, which honors the military, as we previously reported. Her daughter Natasha Bure - a talented actress in her own right and also a Believer - is the headliner in A Christmas for the Ages, a picture that focuses on four generations of women from one family and how they celebrate the day; and it features Cheryl Ladd too - another Believer - as one of those family members.
Among the other Christian leading ladies is Danica McKellar in A Royal Christmas Romance, which is a dance movie, Jill Wagner in Bringing Christmas Home - another story with a military angle, and Jen Lilley in A Paris Christmas Waltz, which is - as you likely guessed - set in the City of Light and the second dance picture in this year's lineup.
Great American Family will also replay Yuletide movies from the two previous years during its 2023 Christmas programming event. The channel has not yet put out a full schedule of which films will air when, but Christian Film Blog will bring that to you when it does.
