It feels like it’s been ages since we saw Jennie Garth and Cameron Mathison on Dancing with the Stars, but true to form, the DWTS alums have kept themselves busy in the past few years. The celebs’ latest project is an ABC Family movie that will air on Thanksgiving Day, 2013. Nothing like a mini-DWTS reunion!
The holiday season may have just ended, but ABC Family is already getting ready for next year’s festivities. The latest movie to begin production is tentatively named Home Again. Part of the annual Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas, the movie will feature Jennie Garth and Cameron Mathison, both of whom have appeared on Dancing with the Stars in the past.
Jennie Garth will be playing Melanie, a corporate type who is planning on spending the holiday season partying it up with her friends. Little does she know that her boss has other plans in store. Sent to her hometown to open a new branch for her retail company, Melanie finds herself facing her family and, worst of all, childhood crush Carter. Yep, that’s where Cameron Mathison comes in. He’ll be playing the love interest and in an interesting turn of events, will end up as Melanie’s husband. But not in the way you’re expecting: Melanie will find herself in an alternate reality in which she never left her hometown and instead married Carter.
Sounds interesting, if a bit sappy. But come on, this is ABC Family and sappy is to be expected. If nothing else, we’re sure it will be a good move for Jennie Garth, whose post 90210 career has been almost exclusively TV movies and reality shows.
Will you be watching Home Again or will you stick with football for Thanksgiving 2013? Feel free to share your plans in the comments section below!
