Netflix will be adding more original holiday films to its programming with the help of La La Anthony. The actress and producer will star in the festive film, Holiday Rush.
Anthony will be joined by Romany Malco (Think Like A Man), Deon Cole (Black-ish) and Sonequa Martin-Green (The Walking Dead), legendary singer and actress Darlene Love (Lethal Weapon) and Tamala Jones (Castle).
The film, directed by Leslie Small tells the story of the ups and downs of the holiday season when the unexpected happens.
“Single dad and radio DJ Rashon “Rush” Williams loses his job right as his four entitled kids share their pricey Christmas lists. To keep Rush on the air in New York, his producer and aunt plan to help him buy another station — if the Williams family can downsize fast and embrace a simpler life. In this heartwarming film, a loving father reconnects with his children when they all learn that true joy comes from who you have, not what you have.”
Anthony’s role in the film has yet to be disclosed, but this will be another role to add to her already extensive list of acting projects. She most recently acted in season two of the FOX show, Star as Angel’s mom in 2018. Prior to that, she was Detective Sonya Diaz in the film Deuces. Make sure to keep out an eye for Holiday Rush this holiday season to see Anthony do what she does best.
