Bounce TV Enters the Original Content Movie Industry

A Stone Cold Christmas, which is a twist on the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, stars Demetria McKinney (Saints & Sinners, Tyler Perry’s House of Payne) as Mia Stone, a shrewd businesswoman and a dreadful boss, who is more concerned about money than family and friends. When Mia finds herself face-to-face with the love of her life, she is forced to with past decisions if she has any chance of a future. Rounding out the cast are Andra Fuller (True to the Game, Black Jesus), Fred Williamson (M*A*S*H, Hell Up in Harlem), Brittany Perry Russell (13 Reasons Why, Sparkle) and Lochlyn Munro (Scream, White Chicks). Bounce is airing A Stone Cold Christmas throughout the holiday season.
