About The Movie:
It’s Christmastime in Norfolk, Virginia. Maddie Johnson (Lilley) is a reporter for the Norfolk Register who grew up in a military family. Maddie, her sister Lieutenant Amelia Breslan (Stefanie Butler), and her mother Elizabeth (Barbara Niven, “Chesapeake Shores”) are about to embark on a holiday Tiger Cruise. Once aboard the ship, Maddie bumps into Lieutenant Billy Jenkins (Donovan), a fighter pilot she met at a Navy Christmas gala a few days earlier. He’s career focused with a bit of a chip on his shoulder. In the ship’s archive room, Maddie stumbles across an old journal from a sailor who fell in love on a Tiger Cruise over 50 years ago. As she sets out to track down the owner of the journal to see how the story ended, she’s forced to confront some of her own fears about military life.
“USS Christmas” is produced by UFO International Productions, LLC. Jeffrey Beach is producer. Steven R. Monroe directed from a script by Andrea Canning.
