IT'S ALMOST THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR WHEN ABC FAMILY KICKS OFF ITS ANNUAL "COUNTDOWN TO 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS" ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20

The original movie "Christmas Bounty" stars WWE Superstar The Miz and Francia Raisa (ABC Family's "The Secret Life of The American Teenager")

Burbank, CA (October 11, 2012) - As part of its annual "Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas" programming event, ABC Family presents the original action-comedy movie "Christmas Bounty," starring WWE Superstar Mike "The Miz" Mizanin and Francia Raisa (ABC Family's "The Secret Life of The American Teenager"), premiering on Tuesday, November 26 at 7:00pm ET/PT.

Former bounty hunter turned elementary school teacher Tory Bell (Raisa) was ready for a new life when she left the family business behind and moved to Manhattan. But when an old enemy is released from jail and vows retribution on Tory and her loved ones, she returns to New Jersey to take care of him once and for all. When Tory's upper-class fiancé, James, follows her home for Christmas, she tries to keep her bounty hunting ways a secret, but the plan backfires when James unwittingly becomes involved in the Bells' mission. Further complicating matters, Tory must work closely with her ex-boyfriend, Mike (Mizanin) to bring down their target and keep James out of certain danger. But as Tory becomes further entrenched in her old life, she finds herself torn between whom she once was and her plans for the future. Will Tory choose her new life with James, or will the thrill of bounty hunting and unresolved feelings for Mike prove too powerful to ignore?

"Christmas Bounty" was produced in partnership with WWE Studios and was written by Claudia Grazioso and Andrew Black & Vivian Lee. The movie was executive produced by Michael J. Luisi, co-executive produced by Richard Lowell and Marc Bienstock, and directed by Gil Junger.

"Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas" airs Wednesday, November 20 - Saturday, November 30. Other highlights include:
