Can you find love while babysitting? This is the starting point of Christmas Nanny, the latest queer and new Christmas TV film broadcast this Wednesday afternoon by TF1.
Do you need a nanny for your Wednesday afternoon? TF1 may have what you need! Nothing to do with the French TV film of the same name with the comedian Booder which should be broadcast on the channel in 2024. Here, the nanny is also a man but he is American and does Baby sitting at Christmas.
It all starts from one Baby sitting which looks laborious…
In The Christmas Nanny, broadcast this Wednesday, November 29 at 2 p.m. on TF1, Sam (Jonathan Bennett) agrees to do a favor for his sister, who must be absent several days before Christmas, by looking after her niece and nephew.
Despite everything, he is uncomfortable with the idea of having to take care of children, and he asks for help from Jason (George Krissa), his neighbor. Little by little, the two of them become closer than Sam had imagined…
One of the first American Christmas TV films with LGBT+ main characters
In the cast of this refreshing and unique romantic comedy, we notably find Jonathan Bennett, an American actor little known in France, apart from a few appearances in New York Special Unit (season 4, 2002), Veronica Mars (season 1, 2004), Smallville (season 4, 2004), or Grey’s Anatomy: Station 19 (seasons 3 and 4, 2020).
With The Christmas NannyJonathan Bennett participates, however, in the first Christmas TV movie with main characters queer of the American TV channel Hallmark, from which TF1 buys most of its Christmas TV films each year.
Before that, Jonathan Bennett, openly gay, had already appeared in multiple Christmas TV films, including Christmas at the Mitchells! (2020), Hallmark’s first-ever Christmas TV movie with LGBT+ characters.
An LGBT Christmas evening friendly proposed this Thursday by the TF1 group
Regularly criticized for giving pride of place to heterosexual love stories, Christmas TV films are introducing more and more characters queer in recent years, although these remain rare.
An advance which, despite everything, is slowly beginning to be seen in France, and in particular on TF1, the only channel to broadcast new Christmas TV films every week in winter. This Thursday, November 30, TF1 Séries Films (TF1 group) will offer an LGBT Christmas evening friendlywith two TV films already broadcast in previous years on TF1.
On the program: at 9 p.m., Christmas on the farm (which we told you about at the beginning of November), followed, at 10:40 p.m., by A Christmas from Hell, with Fran Drescher, mainly known for… A Nanny from Hell. From one nanny to another, the magic of Christmas is obviously never far away.
