TOM CAVANAGH AND ASHLEY WILLIAMS REPRISE THEIR ROLES IN THE ORIGINAL MOVIE "SNOW 2 BRAIN FREEZE," PREMIERING SUNDAY, DECEMBER 14, DURING ABC FAMILY'S "25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS"
Sequel to ABC Family's 2004 Original Movie "Snow"
Burbank, CA (November 18, 2008) - Tom Cavanagh reprises his role as Nick Snowden, aka "Santa," in "Snow 2 Brain Freeze." In the rush to get his reindeer ready for Christmas, Nick jumps through his magic mirror and hits his head upon landing, causing him to lose his memory and forget who he is! With just days before Christmas, his wife, Sandy (Ashley Williams), is desperate to find her husband and enlists the help of her old scrooge-like boyfriend, Buck (Patrick Fabian). With the help of some new friends, Nick's memory starts to trickle back, but will he remember that he's Santa in time for Christmas? The two-hour original movie will premiere during "25 Days of Christmas," Sunday, December 14 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), on ABC Family.
In "Snow 2 Brain Freeze," just days before Christmas, Nick Snowden is so busy with his Santa duties that he forgets all about the early Christmas he promised to celebrate with his wife Sandy. They have a tiff, and he goes out for a walk as only Santa can � right through his magic mirror! A rough landing puts Nick in the hospital with amnesia. Now it's up to Sandy to get his memory back so Christmas can get back on track, but unfortunately it's not that simple: According to Galfrid, the keeper of Santa's "How To" book, Sandy can't just tell Nick who he is. For one thing, he'd never believe her, and his doubt could put an end to Christmas magic forever. So with the help of Nick's No. 1 reindeer, Buddy, and two new friends, Sandy sets out to spark Nick's memory.
Working the serious "Scrooge" angle is Buck, Nick's old nemesis. He'll stop at nothing to keep Nick in the dark so he can steal his secrets and reap the rewards. The only thing Nick knows is that he's meant to be in an old nightclub on Christmas Eve. He's in for one big surprise, and before the night is through, even Santa will get a lesson in the true meaning of Christmas. But will it be enough to jog his memory? If not, will everyone have to forget about Christmas?
Also starring are Alexander Conti as Ryan, Hal Williams as Henry Mays, Viv Leacock as Gustavo, Janelle Cooper as Kaitlin Mays and Jonathan Holmes as Galfrid.
