Kirk Franklin’s The Night Before Christmas Premiere On Lifetime For The Holidays With Naughton And Turner

October 14, 2022

Caught in a blizzard on Christmas Eve, estranged mother and daughter Journee (Naturi Naughton) and Nia (Lorea Turner) are forced to take refuge inside a church.

Where a handful of also-trapped parishioners are reeling from the cancellation of their annual holiday concert.

The spirit of the season takes hold as Journee and Nia weather the wintry storm together with the other churchgoers, including handsome youth pastor Adam (Luke James) and a heavenly music teacher (Kirk Franklin), who motivate the mother and daughter to reconcile their differences through music, faith, and love.

With the help of this unlikely yet spirited group of strangers, Journee and Nia band together to help the church salvage their holiday traditions and show-stopping Christmas day performance, despite the raging storm outside.

Kirk Franklin’s The Night Before Christmas is produced by Swirl Films and Big Dreams Entertainment.

Kirk Franklin, Tracy “Twinkie” Byrd, Leslie Greif, and Naturi Naughton serve as executive producers.

Alex Kerr, Keith Neil, Eric Tomosunas, and Angela Plasschaert also produce.


Tailiah Breon directs from a script by Tara Knight.
