When it came time to choose a Christmas-themed project to film this year, Vanessa Lachey didn’t have to look any further than Lifetime. Her association with the network began with last year's A Twist of Christmas, and as soon as the actor saw who was involved with Christmas Unleashed, she didn’t hesitate to jump on board. “A big part of [that] was getting to work with Nancy Bennett, who was an executive producer on my first Lifetime Christmas movie,” she said when MediaVillage recently sat down with her to discuss the movie. “That was my rookie Lifetime outing, and now I feel like a veteran! Seeing all the women on Lifetime at Christmas like Melissa Joan Hart and Kelly Rowland, I do geek out because I have loved watching their holiday movies. It’s such an incredible group of women to be a part of, and one of those women is Nancy. She said she had this amazing director with a fresh vision, who we call Misch, and it was her first holiday movie. So, to be paired with these two talented women I was already so excited! Then I asked if I could see the script.”
