Brooke White stars in the latest Wal-Mart/P&G family night movie, set to air on FOX January 8, 2011.
In Change of Plans, Brooke plays Sally Danville, a “beautiful and free-spirited musician.” Sally and her fighter-pilot husband, Jason, live free of domestic responsibilities until Sally is “met with the news that her best friend from college has died in a tragic accident on a Peace Corps mission and has named Sally the legal guardian of her four kids – 3 of them adopted from third-world countries.”
Phylicia Rashad from the Cosby Show plays the case worker who breaks the bad news to the carefree couple. Of course, confusion ensues, lessons are learned and everyone lives happily ever after. It’s family movie night people!
You might remember Brooke blogging about the mysterious movie pilot she was shooting in Canada. She didn’t spill much about the production, but did mention that she wrote 3 songs for the film, one with fellow Idol Michael Johns.
Randy Jackson is the producer of the soundtracks for the Wal-Mart/P&G Family Night movies. The Idol judge, who executive produced Brooke’s album, High Hopes and Heartbreak, invited her to record songs for two previous Family Night movies, Secrets of the Mountain and The Jensen Project. Michael wrote a song for the latest movie, A Walk In My Shoes, that premiered on NBC on Dec. 3.
I don’t know how Brooke made the leap from songwriter to actress, but I’m sure we’ll find out.
