In Love At the Kettle (wt), up-and-coming singer songwriter Bella Harlan (Alexa PenaVega) comes home for Christmas and enlists her high-school songwriting partner Jack Grayton (Carlos PenaVega) to craft a song to win back her rockstar boyfriend by Christmas. As the two reunite for the first time in a decade, they embark on a Christmas journey down memory lane, and soon realize true love may be closer than they thought. The heart of the movie centers on Jack's role with The Salvation Army, and Bella soon finds herself inspired by his devotion and passion to a life of doing the most good. Filled with charming original music and its share of twists and turns, Love At the Kettle (wt) demonstrates the importance of never losing sight of the ones who matter the most.

"This is our second film this year with Carlos and Alexa, and I am so excited to be reunited and working with them on a number of projects that are different from the typical rom com," said Bill Abbott, President & CEO, Great American Media. "The PenaVegas are about faith, family, compassion, and love. With Alexa and Carlos starring in and co-executive producing with Mario Lopez a story that celebrates faith, Christmas, and one of the most beloved charitable organizations in America, The Salvation Army -- it is guaranteed to be a winning moment for our viewers," Abbott concluded.

"We are so excited about Love at the Kettle because it represents everything Carlos and I love about Christmas and the holiday season. We want to be a light in this industry and to offer families positive, uplifting and faith-filled stories," said Alexa PenaVega. "We also feel fortunate to have worked with The Salvation Army for a number of years, and we look forward to representing the authentic goodness behind the brand and mission," said Carlos PenaVega.

Love At the Kettle (wt) is executive produced by Mark Roberts, Mario Lopez, Alexa PenaVega, and Carlos Penavega. Brian Herzlinger directs from an Original screenplay written by Horace Priester.
