IT'S A DOG'S HOLIDAY IN THE ABC FAMILY ORIGINAL MOVIE "THE DOG WHO SAVED CHRISTMAS VACATION," PREMIERING SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 28th, AT 8:00 PM ET/PT

The Movie, a Sequel to Last Year's Hit "The Dog Who Saved Christmas," Marks Paris Hilton's First Voice-Over Role and the Return of Mario Lopez as Loveable and Loyal Zeus, Debuting as Part of ABC Family's "Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas" Programming Event

Burbank, CA (October 25, 2010) - One lovesick dog must single-pawedly save his family's Christmas vacation in the ABC Family Original Movie, "The Dog Who Saved Christmas Vacation," premiering Sunday, November 28th (8:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT), as part of ABC Family's "Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas" programming event. A joyous holiday sequel to last year's "The Dog Who Saved Christmas," the film stars Paris Hilton in her first voice-over role as French poodle Bella and Mario Lopez as lovable Zeus. Also starring in the movie is Gary Valentine ("The King of Queens"), Dean Cain ("Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman"), Elisa Donovan ("Clueless"), Casper Van Dien ("Starship Troopers"), Joey Diaz ("The Longest Yard"), Kayley Stallings ("Monk"), Brennan Bailey ("My Sister's Keeper"), Mindy Sterling (the "Austin Powers" trilogy), Catherine Oxenberg ("Watch Over Me"), Carlson Young ("Pretty Little Liars") with Adrienne Barbeau ("Carnivale").

The Bannister family and their well-intentioned pooch, Zeus (Lopez), plan for a nice, relaxing holiday vacation, but their ideal winter wonderland getaway goes awry when Belinda's (Donovan) obnoxious brother, Randy (Van Dien), arrives with his son and their new poodle, Bella (Hilton), proving there is such a thing as too much family togetherness. Zeus immediately falls head over paws for Bella and is desperate to win over her affection, but she will have nothing to do with him.

The family's troubles only get worse when inept thieves Ted (Cain) and Stewey (Diaz) arrive at the resort to steal the $250,000 diamond necklace belonging to starlet London James (Young). Initially successful, Ted and Stewey are forced to ditch the necklace to avoid being caught, leading the way for George (Valentine) to purchase it as a dog collar for Bella. Diamonds are a pampered poodle's best friend, after all. Once Ted and Stewey realize where the priceless jewelry has disappeared to, they dognap Bella, leaving it up to Zeus to once again foil their criminal plans. Will Zeus rescue Bella in time and reunite the family, effectively saving Christmas vacation and winning Bella's heart? Or will Ted & Stewey finally get the best of the affable canine? Only Zeus knows for sure.

"The Dog Who Saved Christmas Vacation" is produced by Starz Media. Jeffrey Schenck and Barry Barnholtz are executive producers on the film, which was written by Michael Ciminera, Richard Gnolfo and Peter Sullivan, from a story by Schenck, Sullivan, Ciminera and Gnolfo. Michael Feifer directed the movie.
