Shannen Doherty is teaming up with the ABC Family channel. According to Variety, the actress will be starring in the holiday film Christmas Caper for the network.

The TV movie sees Doherty as a Grinch-like thief who returns to the small town of her birth and decides to destroy Christmas for its meager populace. April Blair wrote the script, which David Winkler will be directing.

The film begins shooting this week. Christmas Caper is scheduled to air in the late fall as part of ABC Family's annual 25 Days of Christmas programming block.
