Lifetime casts real-life married gay couple in its first LGBTQ holiday movie

Lifetime is putting the final touches on its first holiday movie to feature an LGBTQ romance as the main storyline.

The network announced that the real-life same-sex married couple Ben Lewis and Blake Lee will star in the upcoming film “The Christmas Set Up,” with Fran Drescher and Ellen Wong among the other members of the cast.

“The world we create on camera should reflect the world we live in,” Amy Winter, Lifetime’s head of programming, said in a statement Monday.

Will there be any fisting in this movie?

They're saving that for a Valentine's Day movie, R1.

Will they be wearing matching Christmas sweaters?

by Anonymousreply 3Last Tuesday at 1:23 PM

Well, one of them is cute.

Guy on left is really cute. Maybe Fran Drescher will undermine the LT sappiness.

B....b......b.....but ....

Which one will hate Christmas and which one will own a Christmas tree farm?

Let me guess: the "set up" is the two queens setting up a straight couple for a blind date.

The two hours will focus on all of the antics of the two flaming queens to get this heterosexual couple together by New Year's Eve.

R1, there's a pumpkin spice lube-and-anal scene you're not gonna wanna miss.

by Anonymousreply 8Last Tuesday at 1:29 PM

Neither looks like a screaming queen. A good image for the fraus in the Midwest.

The fat one looks like he'd be related to Charlie Sheen.

The fat one would be the hotter one if he lost a couple of pounds

Is this the tie-in movie version of Chasten's new book?

R11 I find the wonky-eyed, thin one much cuter

by Anonymousreply 13Last Tuesday at 2:03 PM

Are my eyes wonky or is neither of them wonky-eyed?

by Anonymousreply 14Last Tuesday at 2:05 PM

The 'fat one' (who isn't remotely fat) is the actor who plays Green Arrow's gay son William in Arrow.

Which one will present Yuletide hole?

Man, that fat one sure has a face for radio.

Gays under 70 will never watch Lifetime unless it shows hard dick and anal prolapse, for Christmas.

by Anonymousreply 18Last Tuesday at 2:23 PM

Surprise anal in the gazebo!!!!!

by Anonymousreply 19Last Tuesday at 2:40 PM

Will we get to see one of them going up inside the other one? Will either one die of the AIDS on Christmas Eve? I sure hope not.

The one on the right is the mug-cradler.

The plot details from the Lifetime press site read:

[Quote]Hugo, a New York corporate lawyer and his best friend Madelyn head to Milwaukee to spend the holidays with his mom Kate, who is also in charge of the local Christmas celebrations. Ever the matchmaker, Kate arranges for Hugo to run into Patrick, Hugo’s high school friend and secret crush, who has recently returned after a successful stint in Silicon Valley. As they enjoy the local holiday festivities together, Hugo and Patrick’s attraction to each other is undeniable and it looks as though Kate’s well-intentioned Santa-style matchmaking is a success. But as Hugo receives word of a big promotion requiring a move to London, he must decide what is most important to him.

Spoiler: London is more important. THE END.

by Anonymousreply 23Last Tuesday at 6:19 PM

Will there be a tasteful scene where one fellow steadies a ladder while the other puts a star atop the tree...that somehow leads to the first guy plunging his tongue into the other's fartbox?

by Anonymousreply 24Last Tuesday at 7:24 PM

I highly endorse moving to a London - it couldn’t be more Christmassy!

And THANK GOD they have a straight gal pal to get things rolling!!! What would we do without her?

Nah, I'm good.

Christmas in London would be like something out of Dickens.

Buck would never watch a gay themed Lifetime film.

by Anonymousreply 28Last Wednesday at 6:55 AM

Why is the hottie married to such an average joe? I'll never understand hot people who settle, it's like being a millionaire and who only eats McDonald's.

I had a handsome, muscular friend with a longtime partner who was obese. When a mutual friend asked what he saw in him and why did he stay, "He said Billy will never leave me."

by Anonymousreply 30Last Wednesday at 7:14 AM

R29, this average Joe may have "hidden assets."

by Anonymousreply 31Last Wednesday at 7:15 AM

What is a "LGBTQ movie"? Surely it's just a gay movie.

by Anonymousreply 32Last Wednesday at 7:15 AM

Hot gay men that date average or schluby men while they're still in their heyday are so sad. One day this guy's gonna wake up, be old, and realize he wasted his glory days and his looks. Sad.

by Anonymousreply 33Last Wednesday at 7:17 AM

You seriously don't get that there is more to a relationship than trying to land the hottest guy possible r29?

Have you ever been in a real relationship or is your only knowledge about quick hook ups?

by Anonymousreply 34Last Wednesday at 7:21 AM

More than likely R1.

Hot gay men are waiting for u here

it's nice that Hallmark and Lifetime are finally acknowledging that gay and lesbians and nonwhite people celebrate Christmas too. Though who watches cable anymore besides middle-aged to elderly people? I cut the cord a while ago and stream or download everything. If I go to my grandma's house or something, I will watch cable though.

by Anonymousreply 37Last Thursday at 4:50 PM

I hope everyone will watch this movie when it premieres to support our own. If the movie doesn’t get good ratings, then don’t complain if they don’t do anymore movies for us.

by Anonymousreply 38Last Thursday at 4:54 PM

Fuck that shit. Just because it's gay doesn't make it good.

by Anonymousreply 39Last Thursday at 5:02 PM

[quote] has recently returned after a successful stint in Silicon Valley

Yeah... you would like to think that the I.T. industry is gay friendly but it's the exact opposite.

by Anonymousreply 40Last Thursday at 5:06 PM

Is Muriel another exile from Silicon Valley? I'd love to see an emotional Lifetime movie about her journey.

by Anonymousreply 41Last Thursday at 5:09 PM

Lifetime targets to older women, not gay men and Hallmark will still target old women and soccer moms with their movies, again not gay men. I'm not complaining they are trying to be more diversity and provide representation for LGBT but they'll surely just sanitize for a straight audience. But what can you do and having cozy and syrupy entertainment with visible gay and lesbian couples is still a good thing.
