Christmas movies are my thing, which I am equal parts appalled by and equal parts proud of.
Lifetime is doing something that is long overdue. The network has announced its first movie with LGBTQ romance as the lead story. And my heart could not be happier.
The title for the project is The Christmas Set-Up.
What’s it about?
Hugo, a New York corporate lawyer and his best friend Madelyn head to Milwaukee to spend the holidays with his mom Kate, who is also in charge of the local Christmas celebrations. Ever the matchmaker, Kate arranges for Hugo to run into Patrick, Hugo’s high school friend and secret crush, who has recently returned after a successful stint in Silicon Valley. As they enjoy the local holiday festivities together, Hugo and Patrick’s attraction to each other is undeniable and it looks as though Kate’s well-intentioned Santa-style matchmaking is a success. But as Hugo receives word of a big promotion requiring a move to London, he must decide what is most important to him.
Sounds like the Christmas love story that I can’t wait for!
