Christmas Cupid Preview: ABC Family's Take On A Christmas Carol

This Sunday night, ABC Family will premiere their original movie Christmas Cupid, which stars Christina Milian, Chad Michael Murray, Jackée, and Pretty Little Liars’ Ashley Benson.

ABC Family is calling the film a modern-day take on A Christmas Carol and while the premise they released (below) does lean in that direction, it sounds more like a mash-up of A Christmas Carol and last year’s big screen film Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, which was also sort of a modern-day take on the Dickens’ classic. In short, there’s a good chance you’ve heard this story in some form or another but that doesn’t mean ABC Family won’t find a charming way to retell it.

Below is ABC Family’s description for the movie and further down are a couple of clips.

Christina Milian, Ashley Benson and Chad Michael Murray star in ABC Family’s new holiday movie, Christmas Cupid, premiering during ABC Family’s annual 25 Days of Christmas on Sunday, December 12, at 8:00PM ET/PT. Milian (Bring It On: Fight to the Finish, Snowglobe) stars as Sloane Spencer, a high powered Hollywood publicist who finds herself haunted by the ghost of her recently departed infamous client Caitlin (Ashley Benson, Pretty Little Liars). With just days before Christmas, Caitlin takes Sloane on a journey to meet the ghosts of her ex-boyfriends from the past, present and future to try and guide her to true love in a modern day take on the Charles Dickens’ holiday classic story A Christmas Carol.
