In "Life-Size 2," Grace Manning (Francia Raisa) is the 20-something CEO of Marathon Toys, a huge toy company started by her mother that is most famous for manufacturing the iconic Eve doll. Grace is also in the middle of her quarter-life crisis, realizing she is in over her head as CEO. To make matters worse, her wild-child ways are causing the company's stock to plummet. With the help of her young next-door neighbor, Grace's old Eve doll (Tyra Banks) magically awakens to help get Grace back on track and give her the confidence to be the woman and leader Eve knows Grace can be. "Life-Size 2" premieres Sunday, Dec. 2, at 9:00-11:00 p.m. EST/PST.

"Life-Size 2" is executive produced by Tyra Banks and Stephanie Allain. The film is written by Cameron Fay and Stacey Harman and directed by Steven K. Tsuchida. "Life-Size 2" stars Tyra Banks, Francia Raisa, Gavin Stenhouse, Shanica Knowles, Hank Chen and Alison Fernandez.

Dave and Odette Annable will star in "No Sleep 'Til Christmas," an unexpected and whimsical holiday romantic-comedy about two insomniac strangers plagued by exhaustion. Lizzie (Odette Annable) is a high-end event planner preparing for her own life's biggest event - her wedding. She lies awake nightly while her devoted fiancé Josh (Charles Michael Davis) rests peacefully, unaware of how to solve her issue. When a sleep-deprived incident causes her to run into Billy (Dave Annable), a low-key bartender who is just as sleepless and frustrated as she is, they discover that they can only fall asleep while next to each other. What seems like an odd coincidence, and frankly a disruption to their lives, might be more meaningful than they'd like to admit. "No Sleep 'Til Christmas" premieres Monday, Dec. 10, at 9:00-11:00 p.m. EST/PST on Freeform.

"No Sleep 'Til Christmas" is written by Phil Traill ("Chalet Girl") and Steve Smith and will be directed by Traill. Traill also serves as an executive producer alongside Cameron Johann ("Away and Back") and Brent Shields ("Just In Time For Christmas").

In "The Truth About Christmas," Kali Hawk ("New Girl") stars as Jillian, a successful political consultant confident in her ability to put a spin on anything, whose next big project is the upcoming mayoral campaign for her boyfriend George (Damon Dayoub, Freeform's "Stitchers"). On the way to meet George's family for the first time during the holidays, an unusual confrontation with a toy store Santa results in a drastic change in Jillian where she can't stop herself from wildly spilling the truth. Ali Ghandour (Freeform's "Alone Together") co-stars as George's brother Blake, who believes you should always be true to yourself but thinks Jillian just might be losing it. Jillian must find a way to make it stop before her holidays, her job and her relationship are ruined. Freeform's "The Truth About Christmas" premieres Sunday, Nov. 25 at 9:00-11:00 p.m. EST/PST.

"The Truth About Christmas" was written by Kelly Bowe ("Monte Carlo") and directed by Jay Karas ("Alone Together," "Teachers"). The movie is executive produced by Fernando Szew, Hannah Pillemer, and Gaylyn Fraiche.
