The Disney Branded Television series is a production of 20th Television. Allen won a People's Choice Award for his portrayal of Scott Calvin, Santa Claus's proxy, complete with expanding waistline, rosy cheeks and snow-white whiskers in the 1994 film "The Santa Clause.". He went on to play the role in two sequels, both hugely popular movies, 2002's "The Santa Clause 2" and 2006's "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause." In the Disney+ series, Scott Calvin is on the brink of his 65th birthday and realizing that he can't be Santa forever.
