Essence Atkins is playing a single mother in the TV One original holiday film ‘Coins For Christmas.’
Coins For Christmas, which is currently shooting in Atlanta, is about a single mother, Madison Morris (Atkins), who is struggling to make ends meet – just two weeks before Christmas. A chance encounter leads her on a new path. Atkins stars opposite Stephen Bishop ( “Being Mary Jane”), who plays Alec Darby, a former pro athlete who is also not doing well financially.
Via TV One:
Single mom Madison finds herself scraping pennies together two weeks before Christmas after the IRS freezes her bank account, her ex fails to come through with any help and her boss fires her. Desperate to pay bills and buy gifts for her teenage children, Madison jumps into the ever-popular “gig economy.” That’s when she meets and eventually gets hired by obnoxious, sidelined former pro football player Alec Darby, also secretly on the verge of going broke. This odd couple butts heads time and time again, but they eventually forge a friendship. And, to their surprise, they learn a lot about themselves and teach one another how to be better people.
