What is ‘The Truth About Christmas’ About?

Kali Hawk stars as Jillian, a successful political consultant, confident in her ability to put a spin on anything!

She’s taking on her next big project which is the upcoming mayoral campaign for her boyfriend, George (Damon Dayoub, Freeform’s “Stitchers”). On the way to meet George’s family for the first time during the holidays, a confrontation with a toy store Santa results in a drastic change in Jillian where she can’t help but tell the absolute truth.

Ali Ghandour (Freeform’s “Alone Together”) will portray George’s brother Blake, who believes you should always be true to yourself but thinks Jillian just might be losing it.  Jillian must find a way to make it stop before her holidays, her job and her relationship are ruined.

Filming began on July 16th and the cast is already loving it.
