When it comes to finding all the best holiday movies OWN is making themselves quite the go to network. We can’t wait to cozy up under some blankets with hot chocolate or mulled wine, and start watching holiday films, now that is pure joy.
OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network released the official movie trailer for the OWN Holiday movie, “The Great Holiday Bake War,” the sweet story of how sparks fly when former pastry school rivals Julian (Finesse Mitchell) and Brianna (Letoya Luckett) meet years later in a TV baking competition, the sparks – and the flour – fly! Each has their own plans for the winning prize money, but only one can win…unless they work together. While Brianna struggles to support her daughter Willow (Naomi Sogbein) and Julian longs to escape his mother’s shadow, they learn that collaboration can create a new recipe for success – and love.
“The Great Holiday Bake War” is produced for OWN by MarVista Entertainment in association with Harpo Films. Executive Producers include Carla Gardini, Neshama Entertainment’s Suzanne Berger and Arnie Zipursky, and Megan Ellstrom, Larry Grimaldi, Hannah Pillemer and Fernando Szew for MarVista Entertainment.

OWN’s second Holiday movie, “A Christmas Fumble,” will debut Saturday, December 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The “queen of crisis management,” Nicole Barnes (Eva Marcille) gets the toughest assignment of her career when she’s asked to handle a breaking scandal for former pro footballer-turned-TV-commentator Jordan Davies (Devale Ellis), whose network contract isn’t going to be renewed because of a violation going back to his college days. However, Nicole fails to disclose that she and Jordan were once boyfriend and girlfriend — a conflict of interest that could end her own hopes of being made partner at her firm. To make matters worse, Nicole’s efforts to rehabilitate Jordan’s image are constantly undermined by Jordan’s shallow entertainment reporter fiancée.
