Burbank, CA (Monday, November 2, 2009) – Actress Jenny McCarthy will reprise her role as Mary Class in ABC Family’s new original holiday movie, “Santa Baby 2: Christmas Maybe.” McCarthy will star alongside Dean McDermott and Paul Sorvino. The movie is set to premiere Sunday, December 13 (8:00 – 10:00 PM ET/PT), during the network’s 12th annual “25 Days of Christmas” programming event, which will feature over 200 hours of holiday-themed entertainment for the whole family from December 1- 25.

In this sequel to ABC Family’s 2006 original hit movie, “Santa Baby,” Mary Class – Santa’s business minded daughter – must step in to help save Christmas. Santa’s in the midst of a late-life crisis — he’s tired of the responsibilities of the job and is ready to pass on the reins to Mary, who feels torn between the family business and running her own high stakes firm in New York City, along with balancing a relationship with the love of her life, Luke. The situation gets increasingly dire when a disgruntled former elf, Teri (Kelly Stables), in cunning disguise, sows dissension at the North Pole in an effort to take over Christmas.

“Santa Baby 2: Christmas Maybe” was written by Peter Garrett Frawley & Brian Turner and executive-produced by Jody Brockway and Craig McNeil.
