Congratulations are in order for “Sistas” & “Zatima” star Devale Ellis as it was recently announced that he will be leading a brand new Christmas movie this winter!!
Devale is set to Star in “A Christmas Fumble”, also starring Eva Marcille premiering on Saturday, December 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.
A Christmas Fumble revolves around the “queen of crisis management,” Nicole Barnes (Marcille), who gets the toughest assignment of her career when she’s asked to handle a breaking scandal for former pro footballer-turned-TV-commentator Jordan Davies (Ellis), whose network contract isn’t going to be renewed because of a violation going back to his college days. However, Nicole fails to disclose that she and Jordan were once boyfriend and girlfriend — a conflict of interest that could end her own hopes of being made partner at her firm. To make matters worse, Nicole’s efforts to rehabilitate Jordan’s image are constantly undermined by Jordan’s shallow entertainment reporter fiancée.
A Christmas Fumble is produced for OWN by MarVista Entertainment in association with Harpo Films. Executive Producers include Carla Gardini and Roger M. Bobb; Neshama Entertainment’s Suzanne Berger and Arnie Zipursky, and Megan Ellstrom, Larry Grimaldi, Hannah Pillemer and Fernando Szew for MarVista Entertainment. Eva Marcille is Co-Executive Producer and Lauren Tuck is Co-Producer.
