Flight Before Christmas - Reginald VelJohnson and Jo Marie Payton

This Saturday, Lifetime will premiere an all-new holiday movie titled Flight Before Christmas and it will feature two stars from Family Matters. Reginald VelJohnson and Jo Marie Payton, who played husband and wife Carl and Harriet Winslow, will reunite on screen for this holiday movie. The film stars Mayim Bialik, Ryan McPartlin and Brian Doyle-Murray and airs this Saturday (Dec. 5) at 8pm. Excited to take the next step in their relationship and move in with her boyfriend, Stephanie is crushed when he drops the bombshell that he wants to break up. Faced with spending the holidays heartbroken and homeless, she decides to fly home to Connecticut. On a red-eye the day before Christmas, Stephanie finds herself seated next to Michael, who is planning to propose to his college girlfriend. The two get off to a rocky start but things get even worse when the pilot announces that a huge, unexpected snowstorm is crossing the country. Their flight is diverted to a small town in Montana where Stephanie snags the last available room at the town’s bed and breakfast. Despite their differences, she offers to share the room with Michael and try their best to get along.
