Burbank, CA (November 12, 2010) - Sara Rue, Barry Watson, Valerie Harper and Fred Willard have been cast in ABC Family's upcoming original movie, "Always and Forever" (working title). The movie, which has begun principal photography in Atlanta, is set to premiere in Spring 2011 on ABC Family.
In "Always and Forever," P-A-X-497/341, aka "Pax" (Barry Watson), a young man from the well-ordered but loveless future, travels to present day New Orleans in search of romance novelist Elizabeth Barrett (Sara Rue) - whose book he has come upon during an archeological dig in the year 3125. Hoping Elizabeth can explain the concept of love to him, which is now nonexistent in his time, Pax embarks on an adventure filled with new discoveries. Elizabeth introduces Pax to life in the year 2011, filled with love, music and of course, destiny. Valerie Harper plays a confidante and colleague to Elizabeth. Fred Willard portrays Bob, Pax's scientific superior from the future who reluctantly helps him go back in time.
