December 6, 2010 6:17 pm

Brooke White will lead the upcoming TV movie called “Change of Plans” which focuses on Sally Danville, a singer/songwriter who becomes guardian of her best friend’s four children after an accident. “Idol” judge Randy Jackson even will be making a cameo appearance, as well as executive producer of the soundtrack.

Up to this point, Sally Danville’s life has played out just as she hoped it would. A beautiful and free-spirited musician, she and her fighter-pilot husband, Jason, live life on the go, free of domestic responsibilities. But with a single phone call from Child & Family Services case worker, Dorothy (Phylicia Rashad, The Cosby Show), she learns that things don’t always go according to plan. Sally (Brooke White, American Idol) 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. Now Sally and Jason (Joe Flanigan, Stargate Atlantis) must quickly learn to parent this instant family and help the kids deal with the culture clash of life in America. The story is both humorous and heartwarming, revealing how fulfilling life can be when you look beyond your own plans and invest in the lives of others.

Change of Plans” premieres at 8 p.m. EST on Jan. 8 on Fox.
