TV One’s Holiday movie, “Merry Wishmas” tells the story of successful businesswoman Kenni (Tamela Mann) who hasn’t returned home to the quaint town of Columbia, South Carolina in years.
She’s hoping for a peaceful visit when she finally returns home, but unresolved family issues with her sister Dionne and mother Regina threaten to make the Christmas holiday not so bright. She’s reacquainted with Jessie (David Mann), an old high school friend with a fledgling wellness facility and she’s instantly thrown into the lives of the center’s residents. She meets a host of colorful characters including Celine (Kim Fields) and Natalie (Towanda Braxton).
The film also features a cameo appearance by Yung Joc.
Merry Wishmas was written by Cas Sigers-Beedles, executive produced by Roger Bobb and Angie Bones of Bobbcat Films, David and Tamela Mann, and directed by Terri J. Vaughn. Matthew was called on to compose the holiday score.
