Danica McKellar is ready to shake and shimmy into her next role!
PEOPLE can exclusively reveal that The Wonder Years alum, who competed on season 18 of Dancing with the Stars in 2014, will be putting those skills to the test once more in the coming months as she films Swinging into Romance, her latest rom-com movie for Great American Family.
According to the network, the film follows former dancer Christine Sims (McKellar) when she temporarily returns to her hometown for the Fall Festival and learns that her family’s General Store is struggling. In order to help save the business, Christine will need to dust off her dancing shoes and face her ex-fiancé — and she may even find love in the process.
“I’ve been wanting to dance in a movie since I was on Dancing with the Stars in 2014, but I’ve always loved dancing,” McKellar, 48, tells PEOPLE. “My mom was a professional dancer before I was born, so the love of dance is in my genes.”
McKellar is one of the executive producers on the film, which hits very close to home for her since her husband, Scott Sveslosky, wrote the story!
“Back in 2017, I told my husband that I wanted to play a math teacher in a movie, and he wrote the story for a movie that ended up being called Campfire Kiss, and I did that for Hallmark,” McKellar explains. “More recently, I said, ‘I really want to dance in a movie,’ and he wrote this story.”
She adds, “He’s not a writer! He’s a lawyer. He just is good at putting together ideas when I really want to do something. And it’s just fun to have that knowledge that he’s a part of this.”
Asked if those ideas stem from a conversation, or if he surprises her with a story, the actress is quick to recognize Sveslosky’s romantic gesture.
“More or less, he will surprise me with it,” she says. “He’ll say, ‘Hey, so remember when you were talking about how you wanted to do a movie about dance?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah.’ And he says, ‘Well I wrote this 10 pages of a story. What do you think?’ So it’s really all him. Again, it’s not his day job, so the fact he will take to time to do that is really cool. He’s so romantic. I hit the jackpot.”
Over the weekend Danica attended 90’s Con. I’ve added photos to our photo gallery. If you have a photo from the event and want to include it in our photo gallery make sure to tweet us on twitter!

Danica McKellar, who inked a multi-picture deal with Great American Family in 2021, is set to star in Royal Christmas Ball, an original holiday movie premiering as part of the network’s Great American Christmas 2023.
In addition to starring in the film, McKellar wrote the story with Marcy Holland and serves as one of the film’s executive producers.
In Royal Christmas Ball, Chelsea Shaw, a Chicago-based dance instructor whose adoptive parents have long since passed, travels to the small European country of Havenshire over Christmas break in search of her heritage… and maybe even family. Discovering that the only way to get access to information she needs on her quest is via the royal family, she accepts an offer to teach a very reluctant Prince a special Waltz for the traditional Royal Christmas Ball. By the end of this Christmas adventure, Chelsea finds love, answers to her deepest questions, and yes, family.
Royal Christmas Ball is executive produced by Brad Krevoy, Danica McKellar, Kathy Ceroni, and Kelly Martin. Producer is David Anselmo. Writer is Holland.
McKellar’s first movie for GAC was The Winter Palace, which she also exec produced. Previously, McKellar appeared yearly in a Hallmark Channel holiday movie since 2015.
Her GAC Media deal extends through this year.
