WarnerMedia’s pending HBO Max service has greenlighted the unscripted series “12 Dates of Christmas,” a holiday-inspired dating show to debut next year.
The SVOD service launches in May at $15 monthly.
The series will follow a cast of singles as they step into a real-life romantic comedy full of cozy sweaters, fireside cuddles and mistletoe kisses, all arranged to help them find love — just in time for the holidays.
Their romantic journey begins at a Christmas castle, where the prospective couples will enjoy holiday traditions such as ice skating, sleigh rides and hot toddies after a day in the snow. The singles will ultimately choose a special someone to take home for the holidays.
“The holidays can be a magical time for budding relationships and where better to find your perfect match than in this real-life fairytale castle in the snow? Viewers can grab some hot cocoa, watch the romance unfold and be charmed right along with these hopeless romantics as they search for a Christmas miracle — true love,” Jennifer O’Connell, EVP of original nonfiction and kids programming, said in a statement.
