The holiday season is about to get a little happier with Netflix’s first Christmas romantic comedy, “Single All the Way,” which premieres in December. After the streamer shared the first images of the cast, including Michael Urie, Philemon Chambers, Kathy Najimy Other Jennifer Coolidge, in October, the first official trailer finally arrived. And it promises to be an old time gay!
Written by Chad Hodge and directed by Michael Mayer, “Single All the Way” follows Peter (Urie) as he plans to go home for the holidays. Desperate to avoid his family’s judgment of being single, he invites best friend Nick (Chambers) to join him and pretend to be in a relationship. But Peter’s plan goes awry when his mom (Najimy) sets him up on a blind date with a handsome coach named James (Luke Macfarlane).
“Chad Hodge has written a fun and entertaining film that Michael Mayer will effortlessly lift off the page,” Urie said when the film was first announced. “My mom is Kathy Najimy, my dad is Barry Bostwick and my aunt is Jennifer Coolidge – if this isn’t a gay Christmas miracle, I don’t know what it is.”
At the time, Hodge revealed that he made a list of all the things he wanted to see in a Christmas movie like this one. “The list ranged from honestly portraying the uniqueness of gay friendships and relationships, to the often hilarious dynamics of our families, to Jennifer Coolidge,” she said.
And thanks to the new images and the trailer, it looks like we’re getting just that!
“Single for life” premieres Thursday, Dec. 2 on Netflix.
