About ‘Christmas Comes Twice’

The synopsis for the movie reads: “Cheryl Jenkins (Mowry-Housley) is an astrophysicist who works for the National Science Foundation reviewing grant applications for projects, although she’d prefer to be working on a project of her own. Cheryl heads home to spend the holidays with her family and first on the agenda is a visit to the annual Christmas carnival with her sister Trish (Zarrin Darnell-Martin, Burden of Truth). While there, Cheryl sees a carousel in the distance and ventures over to take a ride. But when the revolutions wind down and she returns to the carnival to find her sister, Cheryl discovers that — somehow — it’s five years earlier. Dissatisfied with where she is in life, Cheryl sees this as a chance to change her path by making different choices. As Cheryl navigates her way through her visit back in time, she’s able to connect with her beloved science teacher Ms. Nelson (Ralph), who was an inspiration to her both in and out of the classroom and had passed away several years previously. The time Cheryl spends with Ms. Nelson as well as with her frenemy George (Xavier) helps her find a new appreciation for what she’s doing in life and starts to see George in a new light. But when the carousel returns Cheryl to present-day Christmas with lessons learned, will the love she found be waiting for her?”

  • Tamera Mowry-Housley (Cheryl Jenkins )

The executive producers are Stephanie Germain, Harvey Kahn, Tamera Mowry-Housely, and Michael Shepard. The movie’s written by Gregg Rossen and Brian Sawyer.

Mowry-Housely is part of Hallmark’s Home & Family and has co-hosted The Real for six seasons. She began her career starring on Sister, Sister with her real-life sister Tia.

Mowry-Housely told The Oprah Magazine that she hopes women will recognize themselves in the movie. She said: “The most important thing that I learned about doing Sister, Sister at a very young age was that it created this amazing platform to show people representation matters. Now, I want women who look like us to see themselves in a Christmas movie. This is a movie that is about love, about hope, about faith—and yes, Black women, we have all of that, too!”

This movie, she said, is about learning to truly live life and not just exist.

She also told Oprah Magazine that as an executive producer filming during the pandemic, she wanted to make sure the cast and crew were happy. “If they’re happy, that’s going to resonate through the camera,” she said.
