ABC Family has greenlighted “The Cutting Edge: Fire & Ice,” the fourth installment in the MGM-produced ice skating franchise that started with the 1992 feature “The Cutting Edge.”

Following a direct-to-video sequel “The Cutting Edge: Going for Gold,” the franchise moved to TV with ABC Family’s 2008 movie “The Cutting Edge: Chasing a Dream” starring Francia Raisa as hockey player-turned-figure skater Alex Delgado.

In “Fire & Ice,” Alex segues into teaching after her skating career comes to an abrupt halt when her partner on and off the ice is injured.

This time around, Raisa is joined by Brendan Fehr, who stars as James Van Behr, the smoldering bad boy of speedskating, who pairs up with Alex. The film chronicles the duo’s grueling practice regimen and tempestuous relationship as they prepare for competition.

Stephen Herek (“Mr. Holland’s Opus”) is directing from a script by Holly Brix. Craig Roessler, Sara Berrisford and Hudson Hickman are exec producing.

Production begins this month in Montreal for a spring airdate.
