Chenoweth joins Lifetime original

Actress to star in 'Twelve Men of Christmas'

Kristin Chenoweth has been cast as the lead in "Twelve Men of Christmas," a Lifetime original movie set to premiere in December as part of the network's annual "Fa La La La Lifetime" programming stint.

Based on Phillipa Ashley's novel "Decent Exposure," the romantic comedy centers on a down-on-her-luck PR exec (Chenoweth) who uses her media savvy to generate sizzle in a Montana town.

Chenoweth recently co-starred on ABC's "Pushing Daisies," earning an Emmy nomination for her role as Olive, and in the NBC pilot "Legally Mad."
