Lifetime has cast married actors Ben Lewis (Arrow) and Blake Lee (Fam) as the stars of The Christmas Setup, the network’s first-ever holiday movie centered on a gay romance.

Described as a “feel-good LGBTQ holiday romance,” The Christmas Setup is part of Lifetime’s lineup of holiday movies for the season, which begin airing Oct. 23, last month.

The movie follows New York lawyer Hugo (Lewis), who heads to Milwaukee with his best friend Madelyn (Ellen Wong) to spend the holidays with his mom Kate (Fran Drescher), who is also in charge of the local Christmas celebrations.

Per Lifetime, “Ever the matchmaker, Kate arranges for Hugo to run into Patrick (Lee), Hugo’s high school friend and secret crush, who has recently returned after a successful stint in Silicon Valley. As they enjoy the local holiday festivities together, Hugo and Patrick’s attraction to each other is undeniable and it looks as though Kate’s Santa-style matchmaking is a success. But as Hugo receives word of a big promotion requiring a move to London, he must decide what is most important to him.”
