Mario Lopez (“Access Hollywood“) and Courtney Lopez Star to star in a new holiday film on Great American Family. #Powerjournalist Markos Papadatos has the scoop.

Production is underway on “My Grown-Up Christmas Wish,” starring TV’s beloved Mario Lopez (“Access Hollywood” and “Saved by the Bell”) and Broadway star Courtney Lopez (E! News, A Chorus Line).

Joining his famous parents in the film is Dominic Lopez who will play Mario’s character “Brian” as a young boy. “My Grown-Up Christmas Wish” joins the 2024 all-star Great American Christmas lineup which also includes holiday films featuring Candace Cameron Bure, Danica McKellar, Cameron Mathison, Jill Wagner, Lauren Holly, and Bruce Boxleitner, with many more stars and Christmas movies to be announced in the near future.

In “My Grown-Up Christmas Wish,” Mario Lopez plays Mayor Brian Ortega, who is beloved in the 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.

“My Grown Up Christmas Wish” is executive produced by Mark Roberts, Jeff Stearns, and Jemma Jones. It was directed by Brian Herzlinger from an original screenplay by Brian and Megan Herzlinger.
