Walmart and P&G Unveil the Fourth Installment of "Family Movie Night"

CINCINNATI, Dec. 7, 2010 -- Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) and Walmart (NYSE: WMT) will premiere their latest made-for-TV family movie, "Change of Plans," starring Brooke White, Joe Flanigan and Phylicia Rashad on Saturday, January 8, 2011 at 8/7c on FOX.

"Change of Plans" demonstrates how our lives can be turned upside down with a single phone call. When Sally Danville (Brooke White, "American Idol") finds out that her best friend from college died in a tragic accident while serving in the Peace Corps, Sally also learns that she has been named the legal guardian of her friend's four children � three of whom were adopted from third-world countries. Now Sally and her husband, Jason (Joe Flanigan, "Stargate: Atlantis"), must quickly learn to parent this instant family and help the kids deal with culture clashes and life in America. The story is both humorous and heartwarming, revealing how fulfilling life can be when you look beyond your own plans and invest in the lives of others.

After a successful run in season seven of "American Idol," White makes her acting debut and performs songs throughout the movie. The movie also features a star-studded cast, including cameo appearances by NASCAR driver Jeff Burton and "American Idol" judge Randy Jackson, who has produced all of the "Family Movie Night" soundtracks, including the one for "Change of Plans."

"Brooke has been featured on the soundtrack for two of our other 'Family Movie Night' films and we immediately thought of her for the character of Sally Danville, the free-spirited, kind-hearted guitar player," stated Executive Producer Brian Wells. "This was an ideal first acting role for Brooke and we knew from her audition that we made the perfect choice."

"As a singer-songwriter, I never expected that I would be acting; talk about a 'Change of Plans!'" said White. "I love this story, because it is emotionally-driven, yet light-hearted and fun. It also shows us that the family comes in all shapes and sizes, and reminds us that sometimes life doesn't turn out the way we planned, but it can be even better. It's a great lesson that I learned firsthand!"

Phylicia Rashad, best known as Clair Huxtable from "The Cosby Show," plays social worker Dorothy in her return to television after spending time on Broadway and most recently in the film, "For Colored Girls." The dynamic and diverse children include Jordan (Jayme Lynn Evans, "All My Children"), Javier (Bobby Soto, "Brothers & Sisters"), Kaleb (Jakobe Dempsey, "Barney & Friends") and Sung Lee (newcomer Clarissa Suwoko).

The "Change of Plans" soundtrack includes three songs from White, as well as tracks from various recording artists. The "Change of Plans" DVD and soundtrack will be sold together in a bonus pack exclusively at Walmart. More details will be announced in 2011. For more information visit www.familymovienight.com.

When research revealed parents across America are seeking more family-oriented entertainment options, P&G and Walmart made a commitment to be part of the solution. "Change of Plans" continues P&G and Walmart's "Family Movie Night" initiative, which strives to produce more quality entertainment options families can enjoy together throughout 2011.

"Family Movie Night" launched in April 2010 with the film "Secrets of the Mountain," followed by "The Jensen Project" in July, and most recently "A Walk in My Shoes" on December 3. All three movies celebrated success with high-rated tune-in from viewers and associated brands seeing increased sales during the promotional time surrounding the films.
