ABC Family Presents the Television Premiere of "Another Cinderella Story" on Sunday, January 18, Preceded by "A Cinderella Story," Starring Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray

Burbank, Calif. (Monday, December 15) � ABC Family will present the television premiere of "Another Cinderella Story" on Sunday, January 18 (8:00 � 10:00 PM ET/PT). A high-energy, comedic twist on the classic fairy tale, "Another Cinderella Story" stars Selena Gomez ("Wizards of Waverly Place") as downtrodden teen Mary Santiago, Drew Seeley (the "High School Musical" concert tour) as pop idol Joey Parker and Jane Lynch ("Talladega Nights," "For Your Consideration," "Best in Show") as Dominique, Mary's evil legal guardian.

This re-imagining of the traditional fairy tale steps up the action to present-day Beverly Hills, where Mary, a humble yet sweet servant girl, dreams of being a world-class dancer. Standing in Mary's way is her cruel step-mother, Dominique, a washed-up diva, and Dominique's daughters, Bree and Britt, who do everything they can to crush Mary's dreams. The terrible threesome conspires to keep Mary off the dance floor�and mopping the kitchen floors.

But when Joey Parker, pop's Prince Charming, returns to town and announces that he will be hosting a contest to find the most talented dancer to perform in his new music video, Mary's hopes are revived. In order to increase her chances of winning the coveted spot, Mary sneaks into the studio where Joey is teaching girls the moves and watches him through a one-way mirror. Though he can't see her, the two of them share a passionate dance together.

Later, Mary and Joey share an unexpected encounter at the school's masked Black & White Ball, but it is cut short by the demands of Mary's evil step-mother. As Mary frantically flees the ball, she drops her MP3 player and Joey, determined to find out who the mystery girl is, begins his search by asking girls to identify the top songs on the MP3 play list. Will Joey find his princess? Will Mary's step-sisters' sinister plan to sabotage her work? Find out in "Another Cinderella Story," a dazzling, dynamic remix of the classic tale!

"Another Cinderella Story" is directed by Damon Santostefano ("Bring it on Again," "Three to Tango") from a script by Erik Patterson & Jessica Scott and is produced by Dylan Sellers ("A Cinderella Story," "Agent Cody Banks"). Clifford Werber, Ilyssa Goodman and Neal Dodson serve as executive producers.

Additionally, preceding "Another Cinderella Story," ABC Family will air "A Cinderella Story" (6:00 � 8:00 p.m. ET/PT), starring Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray, telling the Cinderella story with modern day technology, as Sam (Duff) finds her Prince Charming (Murray) on the internet and hopes to meet her online soul mate at the high school Halloween dance.
