We spent a little time on the set of "Holiday Love," by actress-writer-director Kim Fields. It's scheduled to air on Christmas Eve - stay tuned for which network and other details -and will star Mo'Nique, Rickey Smiley, Yolanda Adams, among others.
Fields reviews a scene with Brian Courtney Wilson, from left, Kenny Lattimore and Wess Morgan. The filming took place at a private Buckhead estate.
Fields was recently honored by Women in Film and Television Atlanta at a gala at the Woodruff Arts Center. She was nice enough to let us visit the set and seems like a fun boss. She likes to laugh!
In this scene Wilson, Lattimore and Morgan play put-upon dads just looking for a break during the holidays. They sang a version of "The 12 Days of Christmas" outlining what they all had to purchase: 11 gift cards, 10 Barbie dolls, 8 cupcakes, 7 pairs of Sevens, 6 iPods, a 5-carat ring, 4 DVDs, 3 bags of candy, lights and a tree! I forgot what 9 was.
Fields is very hands-on director, reviewing every aspect of the scene.
