Great American Family, the leader in quality, original faith-affirming programming, and a prolific producer of original Christmas movies, announces production is underway on My Grown-Up Christmas Wish, starring TV's beloved Mario Lopez ("Access Hollywood," "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.

In My Grown-Up Christmas Wish, Mayor Brian Ortega (Mario Lopez) 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.
