  1. A Baby For Christmas: “A group of orphans help a family realize that there’s more to Christmas than wrapping gifts and baking cookies.”
  2. The Miracle On 34th Street: “One Kris Kringle, a department store Santa Claus, causes quite a commotion by suggesting customers go to a rival store for their purchases. But this is nothing to the stir he causes by announcing that he is not merely a make-believe St. Nick, but the real McCoy. The production is followed by a preview of scenes from the Fox feature film The Rains of Ranchipur, starring Lana Turner, Richard Burton, Fred MacMurray, and Michael Rennie. This behind-the-scenes portion was produced and directed by Joe Parker.” 
  3. Nothing Like The Holidays: “It’s Christmastime and the far-flung members of the Rodriguez family are converging on their parents’ home in Chicago, to celebrate the season and their youngest brother’s safe return from combat overseas. For Jesse (Freddy Rodriguez of SIX FEET UNDER), coming home has rekindled feelings for an old flame, though she won’t forgive him for leaving in the first place. Jesse’s older sister Roxanna, a struggling actress, has been chasing her Hollywood dreams for years with little to show for it. And much to the dismay of their mother Anna, eldest brother Mauricio (John Leguizamo of THE HAPPENING, THE TAKE) brings home a high-powered executive wife (Debra Messing of WILL & GRACE, THE STARTER WIFE) who would rather raise capital than a child. But when the Rodriguezes learn that one of their own is facing a true crisis, all resentments are forgotten and familial bonds are re-affirmed.”
  4. A Holiday Boyfriend: “Katie gets dumped right before Christmas and gets on a dating app to never spend Christmas alone!”
  5. Marry Me For Christmas: “To appease her family during the holidays, a single woman pretends to be engaged to her employee in this uproarious rom-com.”
