You Light Up My Christmas Lifetime Movie

You aren’t dreaming, this is a reality!

Members from the cast of the wildly popular sitcom, ‘Facts of Life’ have reunited for a very special reason. They are going to make our holidays a little brighter this year by starring in a brand new movie for Lifetime called ‘You Light Up My Christmas.’

The movie will star Kim Fields, Lisa Whelchel, Mindy Cohn and Nancy McKeon as they share the small screen once again.

Fields is thrilled they will be back together again! “We’re sisters. We have a ball when we get to hang out personally and holidays are about family, memories and fun. So, when the opportunity came up to combine all of that with You Light Up My Christmas, I invited Lisa, Mindy and Nancy to make some fun, Christmas cameos and was thrilled they all enthusiastically jumped on board,” said Fields.

Even though Charlotte Rae who played Edna Garrett on Facts of Life passed away last year at age 92, she is certainly not forgotten. “I had the production name the ice skating rink in the movie after our dear friend,” Fields said.
