BURBANK � November 21, 2006 -- Carson Kressley (Bravo's "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy"), radio personality Dr. Laura Schlessinger and fitness expert Jack La Lanne add to the holiday fun with entertaining cameo roles in NBC's family Christmas comedy "The Year Without a Santa Claus," premiering Monday, December 11 (9-11 p.m. ET).

The movie, about Santa Claus and a young boy who help each other believe in Christmas again, stars John Goodman, Chris Kattan, Ethan Suplee, Eddie Griffin, Delta Burke, Harvey Fierstein, Michael McKean and Carol Kane. The comedy is based on "The Year Without a Santa Claus" by Phyllis McGinley, which was also the basis for the popular 1974 animated holiday classic of the same name.

Kressley plays Santa's (Goodman) acerbic personal dresser and Schlessinger plays a television talk show therapist whose advice is revered by one of Santa's elves (Griffin). Jack La Lanne plays Hercules, who now resides happily in a retirement home for mythological figures.

Mark Wolper ("Salem's Lot," "Helter Skelter") is the executive producer, and Ron Underwood ("City Slickers," "Mighty Joe Young") directs the two-hour movie from the Wolper Organization in association with Warner Bros. Television. "The Year Without a Santa Claus" was filmed in Shreveport and Natchitoches, Louisiana.
