THE LIFETIME ORIGINAL MOVIE "JIM HENSON'S TURKEY HOLLOW" ARRIVES FOR THANKSGIVING NOVEMBER 21ST STARRING MARY STEENBURGEN, JAY HARRINGTON, AND CHRIS "LUDACRIS" BRIDGES

MOVIE BASED ON AN ORIGINAL STORY AND CHARACTERS BY JIM HENSON AND JERRY JUHL, EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY LISA HENSON

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 9, 2015) -- Just in time for Thanksgiving, Lifetime joins forces with The Jim Henson Company on the Lifetime Original Movie, Jim Henson's Turkey Hollow, starrring Academy Award(R) and Golden Globe(R) Winner Mary Steenburgen (Orange is the New Black, Last Man on Earth), Jay Harrington (Benched, Better Off Ted) and Grammy(R) and SAG winner Chris "Ludacris" Bridges (Fast and Furious ). The live-action family-friendly film is based on original characters and story written in 1968 by creative mastermind Jim Henson and his longtime writing partner, Jerry Juhl (The Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock). Currently in production in Vancouver, Jim Henson's Turkey Hollow will premiere November 21, at 8pm ET/PT on Lifetime.

"As we all know, Jim Henson was a one-of-a-kind visionary whose works have entertained and sparked the imagination of millions of people across the globe for generations," said Tanya Lopez, SVP, Original Movies, A+E Networks. "It is a true honor to partner with The Jim Henson Company and be able to continue his legacy with this wonderful project."

"Turkey Hollow is an unproduced gem from our Company's archives. I have fond memories from my childhood of my father planning and developing this production. He was delighted by the idea of magical creatures living in the woods and was excited to portray them in a more realistic way than his other well-known puppet characters," said Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company and daughter of Jim Henson.

The movie follows the story of the Emmerson family, recently divorced father Ron (Harrington) and his kids Tim (Graham Verchere) and Annie (Genevieve Buechner), as they head to the quaint town of Turkey Hollow to spend a rustic Thanksgiving at the farm of Ron's eccentric Aunt Cly (Steenburgen). Surprised by the lack of internet and technology in Turkey Hollow, Tim and Annie soon find themselves swept up in tracking the "Howling Hoodoo," an elusive monster that, up until now, Turkey Hollow residents have long dismissed as mere legend. The Thanksgiving holiday threatens to take a bleak turn when a scheming neighbor frames Aunt Cly for turkey theft, but the fractured family teams up with some surprising new friends to save the day. Ludacris appears as an on-screen narrator in the film.

Produced by The Jim Henson Company, Jim Henson's Turkey Hollow is Executive Produced by Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford (The Jim Henson Company's EVP of Children's Entertainment), as well as Michael Taylor of Multiple Media Entertainment. Kirk Thatcher (It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie ) is directing. Christopher Baldi and Tim Burns wrote the script based on a story by Jim Henson, Jerry Juhl and Kirk Thatcher. The Burbank, CA location of Jim Henson's Creature Shop designed and fabricated the creatures of Jim Henson's Turkey Hollow.
