The temperature will rise a notch this winter with a major first in the well-established genre of end-of-year fiction.
Hot chestnuts! The American channel Lifetime has decided to revolutionize the genre of Christmas TV films by warming hearts, but not only that… On December 9, it will be broadcast A Cowboy Christmas Romance.
Jana Kramer (The Scott brothers) plays the main role, that of a real estate agent who reluctantly returns to her hometown in Arizona in order to convince the manager of a ranch, in the guise of Adam Senn, to give her his land. Obviously, they start by hating each other before becoming attracted to each other. The tension between the two protagonists will reach its climax “in the hay”according to the actress.
“It’s the first ever Christmas movie with a sex scene” she said in her podcast Whine Down . “Obviously, it remains a Lifetime program, therefore family, but we are still pushing the limits here”specifies Jana Kramer.

For the moment, the date of a possible broadcast in France is not known.
