PATRICK SWAYZE CELEBRATES THE HOLIDAY SEASON IN ABC FAMILY'S "CHRISTMAS IN WONDERLAND," PREMIERING ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 20TH

Burbank, CA (November 3, 2008) � Christmas mayhem is afoot when a family stumbles onto a couple of bumbling crooks at the local mall in the new ABC Family holiday movie, CHRISTMAS IN WONDERLAND, premiering on Saturday, December 20 (8:00 � 10:00 PM ET/PT) as part of ABC Family's "25 Days of Christmas." The film stars Patrick Swayze, Tim Curry, Carmen Electra and Chris Kattan.

With a recent move and tough financial times, the Saunders family is facing a bleak Christmas. With the kids moping around home, Wayne Saunders (Swayze) decides to try and make the best out of the holiday by taking the family to the mall to get much needed Christmas decorations and presents. But when the two youngest kids come across a bag full of money, they believe that their Christmas just got a whole lot brighter. Unfortunately for them, the bag belongs to two bumbling crooks who are in the middle of a counterfeit heist and, if they don't get it back, their boss (Electra) will have their heads.

Now with the crooks hot on their heels and an incompetent detective (Curry) holding Wayne responsible for the counterfeit ring, the kids must make things right before Christmas completely lands in the dumps.

CHRISTMAS IN WONDERLAND is directed by James Orr, with executive producers Bob Yari, Alexander Tabrizi and Henry Boger. The film was written by Wanda Birdsong Shope, James Orr & Jim Cruickshank.
