ABC Family is ramping up its holiday programming.
Rogel, who had a recurring role on Georgia as physics grad student Leo and on ABC’s Man Up! as Henry, will play Larry, Holly’s (Mowry) office-mate and a member of her musical group The Mistle-Tones. Jonathan Patrick Moore (Savages, The L.A. Complex), Reginald VelJohnson (Family Matters) and Tammy Townsend (Switched at Birth, Sherri) co-star.
The synopsis for the film is as follows: “Holly (Mowry), blessed with an amazing singing voice, is all set to audition for the newly vacated spot in a legendary local Christmas group which was founded by her late mother years ago. Shocked and upset when the slot goes to the barely talented best friend of the group’s leader, Marci (Spelling), Holly sets out to create her own musical group, The Mistle-Tones. After challenging their rivals to a sing-off on Christmas Eve, Holly finds herself on a journey to the real meaning of Christmas — with some new friends and a new love thrown in for good measure.”
Production on The Mistle-Tones, which will debut as part of ABC Family’s annual “25 Days of Christmas” programming event, is under way in Salt Lake City.
The film is executive produced by Maggie Malina (Single Ladies) and written by Jed Elinoff & Scott Thomas (My Super Psycho Sweet 16). Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam‘s Paul Hoen is directing.
