ABC FAMILY'S NEW ORIGINAL MOVIE BEAUTY & THE BRIEFCASE PREMIERES APRIL 18

HILARY DUFF PORTRAYS A NEW YORK FASHION WRITER WHO GOES UNDERCOVER TO FIND LOVE IN THE CORPORATE WORLD, IN THE NEW ABC FAMILY ORIGINAL MOVIE, "BEAUTY & THE BRIEFCASE," PREMIERING ON SUNDAY, APRIL 18TH, AT 8:00 PM ET/PT

Burbank, CA (February 25, 2010) � They say a good man is hard to find, but one woman will make it her career goal to find love in the workplace in ABC Family's new original movie, "Beauty & the Briefcase" (fka. "The Business of Falling in Love"), premiering Sunday, April 18th (8:00 � 10:00 PM ET/PT). The film stars Hilary Duff ("Gossip Girl"), Matt Dallas ("Kyle XY"), Michael McMillian ("True Blood"), Chris Carmack ("The O.C.") and Jaime Pressly ("My Name Is Earl").

"Beauty & the Briefcase," based on the book Diary of a Working Girl by Daniella Brodsky, stars Hilary Duff as Lane Daniels, a bright effervescent fashion journalist whose career and love life intersect in a complicated way when she pitches the article "Switching Careers to Find Love" to Cosmopolitan magazine � her favorite magazine and ultimate career aspiration. Lane can't believe her luck when the editor goes for it in a big way, handing her the professional opportunity of a lifetime � a potential cover story!

In order to pull the undercover story off, Lane must first land a corporate job. From there, her mandate is simple � find lots of eligible guys in suits in the office and date as many as possible! She quickly learns that going to work at the investment bank, Thompson/Fulworth, doesn't just mean wearing a nice suit and going to lunch. Luckily, Lane's new boss, Tom (McMillian), takes her under his wing and teaches her the ropes. As she navigates her way through the corporate world, she also meets Seth (Dallas), a hottie on whom she develops a crush after he comes to her rescue when the copy machine goes haywire. But her perfect plan goes awry when she meets Liam (Carmack), a gorgeous music producer with a British accent who sweeps her off her feet outside the office. Her editor's (Pressly) rules for the story are clear � Lane can only date the businessmen where she works � so Liam is strictly off limits! Lane is forced to choose between what she believes might be love and her Cosmo cover story � and the results are far from what she expected to find!

"Beauty & the Briefcase" is directed by Gil Junger and written by Michael Horowitz. Executive-producers are Hilary Duff, Frank Von Zerneck, Robert Sertner, Ira Pincus and Jessica Horowitz.
