Odette Annable may be a little sleep deprived…
Freeform has begun production on the holiday movie No Sleep ‘Till Christmas, starring the 33-year-old Colombian and Cuban American actress and her real-life husband Dave Annable.
The film is slated to air as part of Freeform’s annual holiday programming, “25 Days of Christmas.”
Written by Phil Traill and Steve Smith, the romantic comedy centers on two insomniac strangers plagued by exhaustion. Lizzie is a high-end event planner preparing for her own life’s biggest event — her wedding. She lies awake nightly while her devoted fiancé Josh rests peacefully, unaware of how to solve her issue. When a sleep-deprived incident causes her to run into Billy, a low-key bartender who is just as sleepless and frustrated as she is, they discover that they can only fall asleep while next to each other. What seems like an odd coincidence, and frankly a disruption to their lives, might be more meaningful than they’d like to admit.
The film will shoot in Toronto.
Annable just wrapped a season on the CW’s Supergirl as Reign/Sam. Her other credits include House, Brothers & Sisters and The Astronaut Wives Club.
