The film directed by Michael Mayer and written by Chad Hodge debuts in December.
The yuletide season is about to get a little bit gayer thanks to Netflix’s first queer-led Christmas rom-com, Single All the Way, which is set to debut in December. After the streamer shared the first images of the cast, including Michael Urie, Philemon Chambers, Kathy Najimy and Jennifer Coolidge, back in October, the first official trailer is finally here. And it promises to be a gay old time!
Written by Chad Hodge and directed by Michael Mayer, Single All the Way follows Peter (Urie) as he plans to return home for the holidays. Desperate to avoid his family’s judgment about being single, he invites best friend Nick (Chambers) to join him and pretend they’re in a relationship. But Peter’s plan goes awry when his mother (Najimy) sets him up on a blind date with a handsome trainer named James (Luke Macfarlane).
“Chad Hodge has written a laugh-out-loud-funny and lump-in-throat-sweet movie that Michael Mayer will effortlessly lift off the page,” Urie said when the movie was first announced. “My mom is Kathy Najimy, my dad is Barry Bostwick and my aunt is Jennifer Coolidge -- if that isn’t some kinda gay Christmas miracle, I don’t know what is.”
At the time, Hodge revealed that he made a list of all the things he wanted to see in a holiday film like this. “The list ran the gamut, from honestly portraying the uniqueness of gay friendships and relationships, to the often hilarious dynamics of our families, to Jennifer Coolidge,” he said.
And thanks to the new images and trailer, it looks like we’re getting just that!
Single All the Way premieres Thursday, Dec. 2 on Netflix.
