UP presents the exclusive television premiere of the acclaimed romantic comedy “Christian Mingle The Movie,” which follows a successful, 30-something marketing executive’s zany, belief-testing journey for love after she fills out a dating profile on ChristianMingle.com in a moment of inspired desperation to find Mr. Right. Starring Lacey Chabert (UP’s The Tree That Saved Christmas, “Party of Five”), the UP Premiere Movie Christian Mingle: The Movie will make its television debut on Sunday, February 8 at 7:00 p.m. EST / 6:00 p.m. PST.
Produced by Home Theater Films and The Creation Lab in association with Rocky Mountain Pictures and Capitol Christian Distribution, the film is written, directed by and stars Corbin Bernsen (“L.A. Law,” “Psych”).
The movie’s ensemble cast also includes Jonathan Patrick Moore (“The L.A. Complex,” “Neighbours”), Stephen Tobolowsky (“Californication,” “Glee”), Saidah Arrika Ekulona (The Taking of Pelham 123, The Royal Tenenbaums) and John O’Hurley (A Remarkable Life, “All My Children”), with Morgan Fairchild (“Friends,” “Chuck”) and David Keith (Officer and a Gentleman, “Hawaii Five-0”).
“In Christian Mingle, Lacey Chabert plays Gwyneth Hayden, a super-successful marketing exec who admits that the secret to her success has essentially been “Fake It Til You Make It,” said Sophia Kelley, senior vice president of programming, UP. “While it’s always worked for her professionally, hilarity ensues and life lessons are learned when she tries to apply this laissez-faire attitude – with the best of intentions – to dating someone of faith.”
In “Christian Mingle: The Movie,” Gwyneth Hayden (Lacey Chabert, UP’s hit The Tree That Saved Christmas, “Party of Five”) is a 30-something marketing executive with a top-notch career, killer wardrobe, dream apartment and great friends. She thinks the only thing missing is a man. In a moment of inspired desperation, she fills out a profile on the dating website ChristianMingle.com hoping to find Mr. Right.
However, Gwyneth’s attempts at impressing her dream guy end in disaster when he calls her out on her “faux faith.” In an honest realization, she sees her superficial life for what it really is, and she’s driven to create a personal relationship with God. In the end, He delivers on the true desires of her heart: “life-changing” love.
The film also features music from chart-topping Christian music artists, including Toby Mac, Mandisa, Shawn McDonald and City Harbor.
