Burbank, CA (October 25, 2012) - ABC Family will premiere "The Mistle-Tones," an all new original musical starring Tori Spelling ("Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood") and Tia Mowry ("The Game") on Sunday, December 9 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). The movie will air as part of the network's annual "25 Days of Christmas" programming event.
In "The Mistle-Tones," Holly (Tia Mowry), blessed with an amazing singing voice, is all set to audition for the newly vacated spot in a legendary local Christmas group which was founded by her late mother years ago. Shocked and upset when the slot goes to the barely talented best friend of the group's leader, Marci (Tori Spelling), Holly sets out to create her own musical group, The Mistle-Tones. After challenging their rivals to a sing-off on Christmas Eve, Holly finds herself on a journey to the real meaning of Christmas--with some new friends and a new love thrown in for good measure. The film also stars Jonathan Patrick Moore, Reginald VelJohnson, Tammy Townsend, Andy Gala, Megan Kathleen Duffy, and Jason Rogel. "The Mistle-Tones" is executive produced by Maggie Malina ("Single Ladies"), from a script by Jed Elinoff & Scott Thomas ("My Super Psycho Sweet 16"), and directed by Paul Hoen ("Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam").
To make the holiday a little brighter, ABC Family will release an accompanying "The Mistle-Tones" movie soundtrack on Sunday, November 18. Featuring nine songs from the movie sung by the cast, the soundtrack will be available exclusively on Itunes.
