Mattison-directed the original movie for tv from MegaMind is set to be acquired by BET for a December 2022 premiere. The film  focuses on a down-on-her-luck woman facing eviction just before Christmas who must navigate budding romantic feelings for a handsome but grieving billionaire when she takes a job nannying for his two children right before Christmas.


Serayah (Empire) is ‘Montana,’ a natural haired beauty who seems to be all out of luck after she’s laid off, loses her unemployment, and is about to be evicted right before Christmas. Not only that, she breaks up with her stunning boyfriend because she no longer wants to “live in sin.” Trying to keep her faith strong she’s offered a job by church elder and matriarch of a billionaire haircare dynasty, ‘Estelle Chambers’ (Roxzane T. Mims of Greenleaf), to nanny for Estelle’s grandkids who lost their mother 5 years prior while her son, ‘Quentin Chambers,’ portrayed by Ne-Yo, never quite recovered from his wife’s passing.


Now, blessed with a job and a place to live in the Chambers mansion, Montana is faced with the new challenge of caring for children who pull pranks to push her away, an ex who won’t leave her alone, and budding romantic feelings for Quentin whose nightmarish girlfriend, ‘Chloe’ (a role LA’s Finest Draya Michele pulls off effortlessly), is determined get a wedding ring from him. Equipped with the power of music and a loving heart, Montana brings the Christmas spirit and possibility of new beginnings to the Chambers household.
