Aubrey Plaza to Voice Grumpy Cat in Lifetime’s ‘Worst Christmas Ever’

“Parks and Recreation’s” Aubrey Plaza has been cast as the voice of Grumpy Cat in Lifetime’s upcoming holiday movie, “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.”

The infamous Internet sensation with the woeful but endearing facial expression will star in the cabler’s live-action Christmas TV movie on Saturday, November 29, at 8 p.m.

In “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever,” Grumpy Cat is a lonely feline living in a mall pet shop. Because she never gets chosen by customers, she develops a sour outlook on life, until one day during the holidays, a very special 12-year-old girl named Chyrstal enters the pet store and falls in love with her after realizing she is the only person who can hear this unique cat talk. As the two develop a close friendship during the holiday rush, Grumpy reluctantly thwarts the kidnapping of an exotic dog she dislikes and, on Christmas Eve, rescues Chyrstal after the mall closes. Through her adventures, will Grumpy learn the true meaning of Christmas? Or will it be, in her words, the “Worst. Christmas. Ever?”

“Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever” is executive produced by Lifetime’s Arturo Interian, with Ben Lashes serving as co-executive producer. Tim Hill, who wrote the teleplay with Jeff Morris, also directs the movie. A+E Networks is handling international sales for the telepic.
