Burbank, CA (Tuesday, February 22) – Sara Rue, Barry Watson, Valerie Harper and Fred Willard will star the ABC Family original movie “My Future Boyfriend,” premiering Sunday, April 10 (8:00 – 10:00 PM ET/PT).

In “My Future Boyfriend” (former working title “Always & Forever”), P-A-X-497/341, aka “Pax” (Barry Watson), a curious young man from the well-ordered but loveless future, travels to present day New Orleans in search of romance novelist Elizabeth Barrett (Sara Rue) – whose book he has come upon during an archeological dig in the year 3127. Hoping Elizabeth can explain the concept of love to him, which is now nonexistent in his time, Pax embarks on an adventure filled with new discoveries. Elizabeth introduces Pax to life in the year 2011, filled with love, music and of course, destiny.

When Pax doesn’t return to the future by the given deadline, Bob (Fred Willard), his fellow scientist, travels back in time to find him. Meanwhile, as Elizabeth helps Pax learn about love, she ends up confiding in her colleague, played by Valerie Harper, about her own upcoming “surprise” engagement.

The film is directed by Michael Lange ("Greek," "Drop Dead Diva"), with teleplay by James Orr & Jim Cruickshank, and executive produced by Rob Lee, James Orr and produced by Craig McNeal.
