Mario Lopez & Courtney Lopez To Make Christmas Movie For Great American Family

EXCLUSIVE: Access Hollywood‘s Mario Lopez, together with his wife/Broadway star Courtney Lopez (A Chorus Line) are the latest actors to join Great American Family’s lineup of holiday movies.

The duo will headline My Grown-Up Christmas Wish, which follows Mario Lopez as the mayor of an idyllic community of Long Grove. While decorating for Christmas with the residents, Brian discovers his childhood Christmas wish list which magically begins to come true, reminding Brian about the spirit and joy of the holiday. Returning to town for Christmas is Brian’s childhood friend Nina Meyers (Courtney Lopez), and soon a connection becomes undeniable as she helps Brian face a new challenge for the town. As Brian’s wishes come true, he inspires the town to showcase its warm culture and values in order to stop the modern world from stifling the charm and heart of Long Grove.
