Lifetime is giving Grumpy Cat something to smile about.
The Internet sensation — who’s just a perpetually frowny-faced cat, for those of you who don’t know her – is set to star in her first made-for-TV movie this holiday season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Titled Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, the Lifetime original movie tells the story of a pet-store cat (Cat) who can somehow communicate with a 12-year-old girl.
Prior to Worst Christmas Ever, Cat has appeared on American Idol and had a front-row seat at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.
