Mariah Carey Set To Direct & Star In Christmas Film ‘Melody & Mistletoe’

Mariah Carey will soon add movie director to her already-extensive resume.

Carey will direct, star and sing in the tentatively-titled “Melody &Mistletoe,” a made-for-TV movie slated to air on the Hallmark Channel as a part of the network’s “Countdown to Christmas” programming.

Bill Abbott, president of Crown Media Family Networks, says he's confident in Carey's ability to handle many duties in Melody.

"She is exceptionally smart and savvy. Getting to know her a little bit, I'm amazed at her capacity to multi-task," he says.

The film is scheduled to begin production in Cincinnati in October. Other stars include Lori Loughlin, Dermot Mulroney, Danica McKellar, and William Shatner.

“Melody & Mistletoe” will air on Dec. 19th at 8 p.m.
