Everyone's favorite septuagenarian actress Betty White, has signed on to star in a Lifetime Christmas movie, the network said.

White stars in the untitled movie as a woman who “helps whip would-be Santas into shape, spreading the true meaning of Christmas and leading everyone to wonder: is she secretly Mrs. Claus?”

The network announced Thursday a slate of 50 new films to be released this year.

Other projects include a third Prince Harry and Meghan Markle movie, “Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace.”

“With over 50 more titles to debut between now and the end of the year, our storytelling ability is further strengthened by the incredible talent partners we have lined up,” network vice president Amy Winter said in a statement.
