Updated with trailer.
Netflix has set the premiere date and gave a first look at Brandy Norwood and Heather Graham’s holiday movie Best. Christmas. Ever.
The film, which centers on a frenemy friendship “put to the ultimate test over a boastful Holiday Newsletter” will premiere on Netflix, November 16th. Matt Cedano, Jason Biggs, Madison Skye Validum, and Abby Villasmil also star in Best. Christmas. Ever. Mary Lambert is directing based on Charles Shyer and Todd Calgi’s script.
Best. Christmas. Ever. centers on Jackie (Norwood), who every Christmas, without fail, sends a boastful holiday newsletter that makes her old college friend Charlotte (Graham) feel like a lump of coal. When a twist of fate lands Charlotte, her husband Rob (Biggs), and their family on Jackie’s and her husband Valentino’s (Cedeño) snowy doorstep just days before Christmas, Charlotte seizes the opportunity to prove her old friend’s “perfect” life can’t possibly be that perfect. But in her overzealous attempt to expose Jackie, Charlotte nearly ruins Christmas for both families and must team up with her old friend to put the pieces back together.
Brad Krevoy is producing, with Amanda Phillips, Eric Jarboe, Steve Berman, David Wulf, Shyer and Gallicano serving as executive producers.
