BURBANK � November 21, 2006 -- Carson Kressley (Bravo's "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy"), radio personality Dr. Laura Schlessinger and fitness expert Jack La Lanne add to the holiday fun with entertaining cameo roles in NBC's family Christmas comedy "The Year Without a Santa Claus," premiering Monday, December 11 (9-11 p.m. ET).

The comedy is based on "The Year Without a Santa Claus" by Phyllis McGinley, which was also the basis for the popular 1974 animated holiday classic of the same name.

Mark Wolper ("Salem's Lot," "Helter Skelter") is the executive producer, and Ron Underwood ("City Slickers," "Mighty Joe Young") directs the two-hour movie from the Wolper Organization in association with Warner Bros. Television. "The Year Without a Santa Claus" was filmed in Shreveport and Natchitoches, Louisiana.
