ATLANTA, Aug. 23 (UPI) -- Production has begun in Vancouver, British Columbia, on "My Mother's Future Husband," a TV movie starring Lea Thompson and Matreya Fedor, the UP network said.

The film is being produced by Legacy Filmworks Ltd. and directed by George Erschbarner, who previously directed Thompson in 2008's "The Christmas Clause."

Co-starring Sebastian Spence, Gig Morton, Burkely Duffield and Everick Golding, the movie will have its world television premiere on UP in 2014.

The film casts Thompson as a widow of five years who has thrown herself into running her bistro and caring for her 15-year old daughter.

"Mother-daughter relationships are one of the greatest in the world," Barbara Fisher, senior vice president of original programming for UP, said in a statement Friday. "This special film explores how this loving, funny, sometime aggravating, unbreakable bond provides the key to a mother and daughter both moving forward and discovering love in their lives again."
