The protagonist of the Lifetime movie A Christmas in Tennessee is bakery owner Allison Brentley (Rachel Boston, Witches of East End). She runs her small business Rocky Top Bakery in the small mountain town of White Pines, Tennessee with her daughter Olivia (Kate Moyer) and mother Martha. The town gets turned upside down when charming real estate developer Matthew (Andrew Walker) tries to buy Rocky Top Bakery and the rest of the town — which he intends to convert into a corporate ski resort. Allison, her daughter and mom do their best to prevent that from happening.
Allison’s mother Martha is portrayed by Patricia Richardson. She’s known for her roles The West Wing (Sheila Brooks), Strong Medicine (Dr. Andy Campbell), Home Improvement (Tim Allen’s wife Jill, for which she was nominated for four Emmy Awards), and Double Trouble (Beth McConnell), among others. A Christmas in Tennessee premieres on Lifetime on Sunday, December 9 at 8 pm.
