The Disney empire is again bringing Christmas in springtime to Salt Lake City.
Filming starts here in two weeks on "Mistletones," an ABC Family movie set to air during the network's annual "25 Days of Christmas" programming.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tia Mowry will star as Holly, a singer who auditions for the Christmas-caroling group her mother founded 40 years ago, the Mistletones. When she loses the spot to the best friend of the group's leader (Tori Spelling), Holly forms her own group that faces off against the Mistletones in a singing competition.
Mowry stars in the BET sitcom "The Game," and in "Tia & Tamera," a Style Network reality series with her twin sister. She has a book, Oh, Baby!: Pregnancy Tales and Advice from One Hot Mama to the Next, will be released May 14.
Last spring, Salt Lake City was the location for shooting of "Good Luck Charlie: It's Christmas," a holiday TV movie based on the Disney Channel sitcom.
