WWE(R) STUDIOS AND ABC FAMILY BEGIN PRODUCTION ON "CHRISTMAS BOUNTY"

The Original Movie Will Air as Part of the Network's Annual 25 Days of Christmas Programming Event

Francia Raisa Joins WWE Superstar The Miz

Burbank, CA (April 11, 2013) - WWE Studios (NYSE:WWE) and ABC Family began production this week on "Christmas Bounty," a television movie that will world premiere during the network's popular annual 25 Days of Christmas programming event. Network star Francia Raisa ("The Secret Life of the American Teenager") joins the cast as Tory, opposite WWE Superstar Mike "The Miz" Mizanin. Will Greenburg ("Modern Family," "The Office") and Chelan Simmons ("The L.A. Complex") will also star.

"Christmas Bounty" is an action-filled comedy about Tory (Raisa), a former bounty hunter turned elementary school teacher. Determined to have a normal life with her new fiancé, James (Greenburg), Tory would love to keep her bounty hunter past a secret. She reluctantly returns home for Christmas when a past bounty comes back for revenge. But when James follows her home for the holiday, she struggles to hide her wild family business and Mike (Mizanin), the bounty hunter ex-boyfriend she thought she'd left behind. Simmons plays Liz, Tory's best friend who can't quite understand why Tory would want to keep her past a secret. Also cast as Tory's mom, Gale, is April Telek ("Hell on Wheels"). "Christmas Bounty" is written by Andrew Black & Vivian Lee, James Berg & Stan Zimmerman and Claudia Grazioso.
