Great American Family Announces 2023 Christmas Lineup, With 21 Original Titles 

By Movieguide® Contributor 

Great American Family recently announced this year’s Christmas lineup will include 21 new original titles, up from 18 in 2022. 

The network will begin its “Great American Christmas” early, kicking off the buildup to the holidays in October. 

Among the new movies to be released this year is a new CHRISTMAS BY CHANCE, starring Trevor Donovan (DANCING WITH THE STARS) and Merritt Patterson (THE ROYALS, CATERING CHRISTMAS). 

“In CHRISTMAS BY CHANCE, Addie (Paterson), a New York City chiropractor mistankly receives a text from “Nana.” The accidental text turns into a loving friendship between the matronly Nana and Addie who now communicate regularly. Nana invites Addie to spend the holiday in Vermont. It is picture-postcard perfect and exactly as Nana describes except for one surprise. Nana’s single son, James (Donovan), a traveling doctor is also home for the holidays. Over three consecutive years, James and Addie are together during the holidays, though it isn’t until they are both single that they begin to see each other in a different light,” according to Deadline. 

The Christmas celebration on Great American Family will include 24/7 holiday movies, with their original movies premiering on Saturdays and Sundays through the end of the year. 

Movieguide® previously reported on last year’s “Great American Christmas”:  

The 2022 Christmas season has hardly begun, but Great American Family is already breaking records! 

Their first holiday movie of 2022, DESTINED AT CHRISTMAS, premiered October 22 and broke “all network ratings records” in all key demographics, including total households, total viewers, women 25-54 and women 18-49. 

DESTINED AT CHRISTMAS has been broadcast three times, earning a million total viewers.  

Bill Abbott, the president and CEO of Great American Media, celebrated this milestone on Twitter.  

“Not all Christmas movies are created equal,” he wrote. “We understand better than anybody how to produce quality Christmas movies and that great content wins. Viewers have found that in our #GreatAmericanChristmas programming event on #GreatAmericanFamily!” 

The 2022 Great American Christmas movie A CHRISTMAS … PRESENT won several Movieguide® Awards this year, including the Grace Prize® for actress Candace Cameron Bure.
