A Clüsterfünke Christmas (Previously announced):

Premiere date: Saturday, December 4 at 7PM with an immediate encore

Synopsis: A Clüsterfünke Christmas is a celebratory parody of the traditional TV holiday romance that follows Holly (Lovell), a go-getter real estate exec from New York City who heads to a small town to buy the quaint Clüsterfünke Inn and transform it into a mega-resort. First, she must convince the inn's spinster owners (Gasteyer and Dratch) to make the sale. But before she can, she meets their nephew Frank (Jackson), a hot hunk of smoldering woodsman. Will she go back to her fast-paced city life, or will she fall in love with Frank and find the spirit of Christmas? What will she do? What. Will. She. Do... A Clüsterfünke Christmas is a festive cocktail of holiday movie tropes, dripping with sappy syrup and a twist of sexy lumberjack.

Written By: Rachel Dratch and Ana Gasteyer

Director: Anna Dokoza

Starring: Vella Lovell, Cheyenne Jackson, Ryan McPartlin, Nils Hognestad, Rachel Dratch and Ana Gasteyer

Executive Producers: Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer; Meghan Hooper, Trevor Rose and Josh Van Houdt; Danielle von Zerneck ; Jamie Goehring and Shawn Williamson

Quote: "It feels like a Christmas miracle to work together to create the ultimate holiday TV movie homage," said Ana Gasteyer and Rachel Dratch. "We're whipping up a punchy seasonal cocktail with insider insight from holiday film vets Danielle von Zerneck and Michael Murray, the keen eye of Anna Dokoza, and brimming with ribbons, townsfolk, and tropes - all against the classic festive backdrop of Vancouver in July!"
