Netflix has given a first-look at its first gay Christmas movie, Single All the Way, which will be out in December.
The movie will mark the first time the streaming platform has featured a gay romance as its main storyline of a Christmas film.
It will follow Peter (Michael Urie) persuading his best friend Nick (Philemon Chambers) to return home for the holidays.
This is so he can be his fake date and appease Peter’s Christmas-obsessed family who desperately wants him to be in a relationship.
Little do they know, Peter’s mother, Carole (Kathy Najimy), is trying to get him set up with her spin instructor, James (Luke MacFarlane).
Also appearing in Single All the Way will be Aunt Sandy (Jennifer Coolidge), though her part in the storyline remains unclear at present.
Speaking via email to Entertainment Weekly, Urie says: “You can expect pageantry, wine, hunky Santas, a little bit of deception, a whole lotta do-gooding, and Jennifer Coolidge.
“My parents are played by Barry Bostwick and Kathy Najimy — a combination that scientists agree can only produce sons who are gay and love Christmas.
“Peter’s the kind of Guncle who has spent many Christmases perfecting choreography to a Britney Spears Christmas song with his nieces. And it is perfect.”
Urie also spilled the T on his character, who is obsessed with plans and hates his job.
“Peter is a self described plant-gay — he has a fern named Judith — trapped in a social media job he doesn’t love and is always single when he goes home for the holidays,” he reveals.
The former Ugly Betty star adds: “Like any good Christmas movie, there will be decorating, there will be mistletoe, there will be sleeveless flannel, but you never have you witnessed a town Christmas Pageant cast with children, written/produced/directed by and starring Jennifer Coolidge. It’s the gayest thing to happen to Christmas since Mariah!”
From the looks of the first three images, first shared by Entertainment Weekly, it’s sure to become an instant Christmas classic.
Single All the Way is expected to arrive on Netflix on 2 December.
