HBO Max Orders Christmas-Themed Reality Dating Show
HBO Max, the upcoming streaming service and formidable opponent in the Streaming Wars, has ordered to series a new unscripted Christmas-themed reality dating show.
Influenced by Christmas themed rom-coms and described as a “quest for love in a Winter Wonderland,” the reality show places singles in a lavish picturesque castle, where they can partake in classic winter activities including snowball fights, skiing, and drinking hot toddies in front of the fireplace. All the while, they’re testing the waters to find the special someone to take home for the holidays.
The setting, the vibe, and the Christmas spirit can be shared with the viewers at home. “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,” says Jennifer O’Connell, the company’s Executive Vice President of Original Non-Fiction and Kid’s Programming.
The series was created by Michael Beilinson (“Million Dollar Car Hunters”) and is set to premiere following the company’s launch in 2020.
