Real-life married couple Blake Lee and Ben Lewis star in the upcoming Lifetime holiday movie The Christmas Setup, the first such LGBTQ special for the network. Fran Drescher and Ellen Wong also star.
A feel-good LGBTQ holiday romance, The Christmas Setup, which also was written and directed by members of the LGBTQ community, follows Hugo (played by Lewis), a New York lawyer who heads to Milwaukee with his best friend Madelyn (GLOW‘s Ellen Wong) to spend the holidays with his mom Kate (The Nanny‘s Fran Drescher), who is (of course!) also in charge of the local Christmas celebrations.
Ben broke the news on his Instagram:
The two met in real life at the premiere of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World:
