ABC Family and Muse Entertainment have announced that production will begin this week on the new original Thanksgiving movie, “Home Again” (working title), starring Cameron Mathison (“All My Children”) and Jennie Garth (“Beverly Hills, 90210”). The film is scheduled to premiere in November as part of the network’s annual “Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas” programming event. Mary Kay Place (“The Big Chill”) will also star.
In the movie, Melody (Garth), a high powered corporate workaholic for a retail conglomerate, is happy to spend the holidays jet-setting with her girlfriends. However, she’s in for an unpleasant surprise when her boss sends her to her sleepy hometown to convince the reluctant townspeople to allow them to build a new discount store. Now, forced to reconnect with her family and her childhood sweetheart Carter (Mathison), her task is not so simple, as all are vehemently opposed to everything Melody’s company stands for. Desperate to get out of town and back to her “real” life, Melody takes a spill and wakes up in an alternate universe where she never left home and is married to Carter! Once determined to leave her small town life behind, Melody must make sense of her new life and decide if you truly can go home again.
Executive Producers of “Home Again” are Greg Gugliotta, Michael Prupas and Jonas Prupas. Steve Solomos will serve as a producer on the project with the teleplay written by Michael Vickerman, and story by Michael Vickerman & Ann Gunder. Jerry Ciccoritti will direct.
