‘Tis the season for making dreams true. If everything goes according to plan for one young boy, he just may be sharing this Christmas with a new dad. Ever since her husband died, Sarah Armstrong (Emmy nominee Gail O’Grady, NYPD Blue) has divided her time between working at a community center and caring for her nine-year-old son, Jesse (Jimmy ‘Jax’ Pinchak, The Polar Express). When Jesse wins the “All I Want for Christmas” contest sponsored by a toy company, his wish comes as no surprise—to find a new dad. When Sarah’s single-mom status becomes a national news story, she’s not the only one who’s taken aback. Her longtime friend, Ben Grant (Robert Mailhouse, Days of Our Lives), a newspaper writer and Jesse’s best buddy, finds his own feelings for Sarah finally emerging—just as they’re being undone by a toy company’s publicity stunt. The most frustrated one of all is Jesse. He’s been rooting for Ben all along, but the only man making any headway is Roger, (Greg Germann, Ally McBeal) the contest’s wealthy, but totally unworthy, dating chaperone. After every one of Sarah’s bad dates and potential suitors fall by the wayside, Roger’s the one who finally proposes. A stunned Sarah accepts. The public loves a happy ending. Of course, so do Ben and Jesse, who’ve bonded even more over their mutual dislike for Jesse’s potential new father. Now, they have to work hard and fast to make that happy ending come true for them—and ultimately for Sarah, if she’s willing to listen to heart. Just in time for the holidays, All I Want for Christmas is a surprise romantic treat for anyone who believes in the magic of love, friendship, and family.

Tony Danza is a dutiful but downright hysterical dad in SHE'S OUT OF CONTROL, the comedy about every teenager's greatest dream and every father's worst nightmare. Danza stars as Doug Simpson, a hip radio station exec, and the relatively stable single father of two daughters. But when Doug returns home from a business trip, he finds his fiancee (Catherine Hicks) has turned his life upside down by transforming his eldest daughter Katie (Ami Dolenz) from an awkward adolescent to an absolute knockout. Faced with the realization that his suddenly-sensational daughter is the dream date of every high school male old enough to have a learner's permit, Doug does his best to rain on Katie's endless parade of punkers, preppies and precocious would-be suitors. Will this over-protective, over-zealous dad ever find a place in his "little girl's" heart again?
Light-hearted spoof about the dynamics of a father's relationship with his teenage daughter when she discovers boys.
