The film, which began production this week in Toronto, follows a young woman turned angel, Allison Pyke (Song), who is stuck on Earth and can’t seem to do what is required in order to get into heaven. When the love of her life, Patrick (Ricky Mabe), shows up in New York City, it complicates Pyke’s journey, as well as frustrates her angel mentor Jason Biggs (Biggs). The not-so-merry situation also turns into an unexpected love-triangle with her friend with sometimes benefits, Barker (Andy Favreau). The film will also star Andrew Bachelor.
Freeform was formerly ABC Family and is part of the Disney-ABC television group. Song has a long history with Disney television, having starred in “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” and “The Suite Life on Deck.” She has also appeared on “Key and Peele,” “Scandal,” “New Girl,” and “Pure Genius.” She is repped by DPN Talent and Curtis Talent Management.
