Featuring a largely non-descript cast, the Disney Channel's 1997 production of Under Wraps is a Halloween-themed film involving the discovery of a 3,000 year-old mummy (Bill Fagerbakke) by a trio of 12-year-olds. Suspension of belief is necessary (it's only a movie) as the three befriend the obviously "out-of-his-element" mummy. Hilarity ensues through the efforts of the youngsters to keep their often-clumsy, bumbling discovery secret, and when they learn of an attempt by dark, powerful forces (led by veteran actor Ed Lauter) to "recapture" Harold (as named by them), the film takes on an "Us vs. Them" slant, with the predictable outcome.
Directed by Greg Beeman, who also was behind the camera on TV series as The Wonder Years, Nash Bridges, The Sentinel and JAG, Under Wraps was written and produced by Don Rhymer, who served the same dual role on hits such as Coach, Evening Shade and Caroline in the City.
