“Ghosting: The Spirit of Christmas,” tells the quirky and heart-warming story of Jess (Aisha Dee), who goes on the greatest first date of her life, but inadvertently “ghosts” Ben when she tragically dies in a car accident on the way home. Stuck on Earth with no idea how to ascend, Jess will need the help of her best friend Kara (Kimiko Glenn), the only person who can still see and hear her. Kendrick Sampson (“Insecure”) and Jazz Raycole (“The Quad”) also star. Executive producers include Lisa Kudrow, Dan Bucatinsky, Tony Phelan, and Joan Rater. “Ghosting: The Spirit of Christmas” premieres Wednesday, Dec. 4, at 9:00 p.m. EST/PST.

First Look at ‘Good Trouble’ Holiday Special Event

“Good Trouble” will reunite the cast of “The Fosters” when the Adams-Foster clan comes to the Coterie to spend Christmas with Callie and Mariana. In hour one, “Nochebuena,” The Fosters visit the Coterie for Christmas and Callie struggles to tell her moms about quitting her clerkship, while Mariana agrees to volunteer for a holiday festival for the underprivileged. Alice is hiding a secret from the Coterie, and Davia strolls down memory lane with Dennis, opening old wounds.

In hour two, “A Very Coterie Christmas,” the Fosters and the Hunters help out with the impromptu volunteer Christmas event. Stef agrees to be a part of Mariana’s plan to avoid a major catastrophe, all while Gael and Jazmine deal with a painful family decision. Jamie is eager to ask Callie a very important question.

‘Frosty The Snowman’ and ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’

For the first time on cable television, Freeform has teamed up with Rankin-Bass to air the seminal holiday classics, “Frosty the Snowman” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” One of the most popular and longest-running Christmas specials in television history, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” first aired in 1964, with “Frosty the Snowman” following in 1969. These holiday classics will air back-to-back on Friday, Dec. 6, beginning at 8:00 p.m. EST/PST.
