Emma Roberts (American Horror Story, Scream Queens, Nerve, Palo Alto) has signed to star in Holidate, coming to Netflix. The film will be directed by John Whitesell (Big Momma’s House 2, Malibu’s Most Wanted) from a script by Tiffany Paulsen.
Holidate is described as follows: “Sloane and Jackson hate the holidays! Their enduring singledom leaves them subject to the judgment of their meddling family members or stuck with clingy, awkward dates on each festive occasion. When these two meet, they pledge to be each other’s plus-ones for each holiday celebration over the course of the year.”
The project comes from Wonderland’s McG and Mary Viola (I Feel Pretty, The Babysitter). Wonderland is currently in production on the comedy Tall Girl for Netflix. Prior to that they produced Netflix hits The Babysitter, When We First Met, and the upcoming family action film Rim of the World. Additionally, they are the duo behind comedies The DUFF and I Feel Pretty.
Holidate marks the fifth collaboration between Wonderland and Netflix.
