As we learned from It’s a Wonderful Life, every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings – raising the question, what kind of sour noted bell would produce an Angry Angel?
Set in New York City, Angry Angel follows a young woman turned angel, Allison Pyke, who is stuck on Earth and can’t seem to ring the right bells in order to pass through those pearly gates into heaven.
Angry Angel, Freeform’s first original Christmas movie, began production this week in Toronto. It stars Brenda Song, Jason Biggs, Ricky Mabe, Andrew Batchelor and Any Favreau – and will be part of Freeform’s annual Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas.

Production Kicked Off This Week in Toronto
Freeform, Disney’s young adult television and streaming network, in association with Sony Pictures Television, announced today that it has started production on their first original Christmas movie, “Angry Angel,” in Toronto. From Golden Globe-nominated director and writer Will Gluck (“Easy A”, “Friends with Benefits”), the two-hour special holiday feature stars Jason Biggs (“Orange Is the New Black”), Brenda Song (“Pure Genius”), Ricky Mabe (“Preacher“), Andrew Bachelor (“Meet the Blacks”) and Andy Favreau (“Aquarius“).
Set in New York City, “Angry Angel” follows a young woman turned angel, Allison Pyke (played by Song), who is stuck on Earth and can’t seem to ring the right bells in order to pass through those pearly gates into heaven. When the love of her life, Patrick (played by Mabe), shows up in New York City, it complicates Pyke’s journey as well as frustrates her angel mentor Jason Biggs (played by Biggs). The not-so-merry situation also turns into an unexpected love triangle with her friend with sometimes benefits, Barker (played by Favreau).
The film will be a part of Freeform’s annual “Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas,” which begins on Saturday, November 18. The annual countdown to the fan favorite “25 Days of Christmas” will feature titles that will get everyone in the Christmas spirit, including: “Elf,” “Richie Rich’s Christmas Wish,” “Home Alone” and many more. The full slate for “Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas” and “25 Days of Christmas” will be announced at a later date.
Produced by Olive Bridge Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television, Will Gluck and Richard Schwartz will serve as executive producers. “Angry Angel” will premiere in November 2017.
