PRODUCTION TO START ON “HOME AGAIN” WITH JENNIE GARTH AND CAMERON MATHISON SET TO PREMIERE THANKSGIVING 2013 ON ABC FAMILY

Burbank, CA (January 8, 2013) – Muse Entertainment, in association with ABC Family, will begin production this week on the new original Thanksgiving movie “Home Again” (working title). Jennie Garth (“Beverly Hills, 90210,” “What I Like About You”) and Cameron Mathison (“Dancing with the Stars,” “All My Children,” “Good Morning America”) will star in the movie, which is set to premiere as part of the network’s annual “Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas” programming event in November, 2013. Also cast in the movie is Mary Kay Place (“The Big Chill,” “The West Wing,” “Big Love”).
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, and Producer is Steve Solomos. Teleplay is by Michael Vickerman, and Story by Michael Vickerman & Ann Gunder, and directed by Jerry Ciccoritti.
