In each episode of the special, Crews will visit a holiday enthusiast too overwhelmed by all that goes into planning Christmas and give their holiday season a complete makeover with the help from a team of food, beverage, and design experts.
“Sometimes, the pressure of gathering loved ones and hosting an event can be a stress-filled recipe for disaster,” explained Crews. “And that’s where I come in – I’m going to work my Christmas magic to help give these families the best holiday ever.”
The choice of the CW was an easy one, according to Max Levenson of Electus, saying the series “will feature busy young families, a lot of whom work 40-50 hours a week and feel pressure to carry on the family tradition and put on a great holiday,” which audiences of the channel will be able to relate to.
Tim Warren and Christopher Grant, Drew Buckley, Justin Dudek, and Levenson of Electus are set to produce the series, which will air December 20, 21, 22, and culminate in a two-hour finale on December 23.
Crews has won over audiences with his role as Terry Jeffords on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. He’ll next be seen in the Scott Zabielski movie Where’s the Money.
