Great American Family network announced its “Great American Christmas 2023” line-up is ready in a new trailer as it revealed that fans will get 20 new premiers starting in October and running through the holiday season.
In the 30 second clip from GAF, viewers learn that coming this October “the stars you love” will appear in 20 all-new original holiday movies that are part of the networks 24-hours-a-day and 7-days-a-week Christmas programming this year for GAF’s Christmas season, a press release read.
“Full House” star Candace Cameron Bure along with Lori Loughlin, Danica McKellar, Chad Michael Murray, and so many more are part of the third year of Christmas programming from the faith-based TV network, which says it offers an alternative to Hallmark’s LGBTQ-themed films.
Bure will star in one of the films, “My Christmas Hero,” which honors U.S. veterans. A description about it read, “An army reserve doctor (Bure) tracks down her family’s military history with the help of a new romance (Gabriel Hogan).”
And this year fans of Bure’s will also get to see her daughter Natasha Bure taking the lead in the movie “Christmas for the Ages,” alongside Anna Ferguson, Kate Craven, and Cheryl Ladd, the release noted.
Other films include titles like, “Royal Christmas Holiday,” “Bringing Christmas Home,” “Mistletoe Moments,” “Our Christmas Wedding,” and more, according to the press release.
Bure develops, produces, and stars in movies and TV shows broadcast on the channel, as previously reported.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, the “Fuller House” star talked about her decision to leave Hallmark and join GAF, after Hallmark’s programming and advertising started involving LGBTQ-themed stories, including the first original holiday movie focused on a same-sex couple, “The Holiday Sitter,” in December.
“I knew that the people behind Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment,” the superstar actress said, noting that Hallmark had essentially become “a completely different network” than when she signed on due to a “change of leadership.”
“Great American Christmas” kicks off October 20.
