Cranberry Christmas follows Dawn (Nikki DeLoach) and Gabe (Benjamin Ayres) Hughes, a married couple who also run the mega-successful lifestyle brand, Cranberry Lane. They may portray a happy husband and wife duo, but offhand, they are anything but. Little do their beloved fans know that Dawn and Gabe have been separated and even plan on spending the holidays apart.

But, when a popular reality TV personality wants to interview them, they must put on their “Mr. and Mrs. Cranberry Lane” show and pretend to be the blissful couple everyone thinks they are. Along the way, they discover that old feelings have resurfaced, but with new jobs looming in both of their futures, can they find the spark they once had?
