Netflix is making a push to disrupt Hallmark Channel's market domination of the TV Christmas movie genre. The first shot was last year's A Christmas Prince, and this year the streaming service will release four holiday movies in November, starting with The Holiday Calendar on Nov. 2, which got a trailer on Monday.
The Holiday Calendar stars The Vampire Diaries' Kat Graham as a young woman who gets an heirloom advent calendar from her grandfather (This Is Us' Ron Cephas Jones) that seems to have wish-granting powers. She meets the guy of her dreams (Star Trek: Discovery's Ethan Peck) and gets the job of her dreams, but starts to miss out on what's been in front of her the whole time?
Fun fact: Kat Graham and Quincy Brown (who plays the in-front-of-her-the-whole-time character) are both godchildren of superstar music producer Quincy Jones, the subject of a recent Netflix documentary.
The other holiday Netflix holiday movies are The Princess Switch with Vanessa Hudgens on Nov. 16; The Christmas Chronicles with Kurt Russell on Nov. 22; and A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding on Nov. 30.
The Holiday Calendar premieres on Netflix Friday, Nov. 2.
