The new Christmas TV movie “Merry Wishmas” debuted on TV One Sunday, Dec. 2 and fans were delighted to see iconic husband and wife duo David Mann and Tamela Mann in action on the small screen.

The film focuses on Tamela as Kenni, a successful businesswoman who comes home to the quaint town of Columbia, S.C. for the first time in years. What she hopes will be a tranquil visit turns into her dealing with family drama and helping her old pal, Jessie, who is played by David, save his nascent wellness center.

“In this movie, David Mann is not the over the top, comedic guy that you guys are used to seeing,” actress Terri Vaughn explained exclusively to Atlanta Black Star of the film on Friday, Dec. 1. “He’s more of the straight guy, he has a heart. He does, still, some funny stuff but he’s mostly the straight man and he has some really vulnerable moments in this movie and I think the fans are going to be surprised by his work.”

But that doesn’t mean the flick is all serious. Vaughn promised fans are “going to cry, you’re going to laugh, you’re going to get mad, you’re gonna laugh some more.”

“It’s a good melting pot of a romantic comedy with family drama,” she adds.

Fans who caught the flick, which also counts Towanda Braxton and Kim Fields among its stars and features a cameo from Yung Joc, praised the humor.

“I swear Towanda is doing the most with that Jingles Bells number 😂😂😂#MerryWishmas.”

“@terrijvaughn’s cameo made me laugh out loud. 😂😂 #MerryWishmas.”

“He called them the Unsupremes 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣 #MerryWishmas.”

“So They Really Reciting The Lyrics To Take Me To The King 😂😂 That’s My Song Tho ❤️❤️ #MerryWishmas.”

“Now that was really good! 🙌🏾 #MerryWishmas.”
