Making its debut on Netflix this Christmas is the festive holiday movie, Single All the Way – a brand-new LGBTQ+ romantic comedy. The film stars Ugly Betty star Michael Urie, alongside Philemon Chambers, Luke Macfarlane, Barry Bostwick, Kathy Najimy and Jennifer Coolidge, and follows the story of Peter, a single guy who convinces his best friend to pretend to be in a relationship with him just for the holiday season.
The official blurb for Netflix’s Single All the Way reads: “Desperate to avoid his family’s judgment about his perpetual single status, Peter convinces his best friend Nick to join him for the holidays and pretend that they’re now in a relationship. But when Peter’s mother sets him up on a blind date with her handsome trainer James, the plan goes awry.”
Single All the Way is directed by Michael Mayer who has directed TV movies including Hatfields & McCoys (2013) and Stanistan (2015). Mayer has also directed episodes of shows including Alpha House and Smash.
The film is written and executive produced by Chad Hodge. Speaking about the movie (via Netflix), Hodge said: “When I sat down to write this movie, I made a list of all the things I personally wanted to see in a holiday rom-com.
“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.
“I’m so grateful to Netflix for embracing all of it. I can’t wait to see it come to life.”
Producer Joel Rice said: “What I love most about this hysterical, moving project is that it is simply a genuine holiday romantic comedy that explores friendship and love between gay men.”
Music for Single All the Way is by Anton Sanko, while casting is by Rosina Bucci, John Buchan, and Jason Knight. Single All the Way was filmed in Pointe Claire, Quebec.
Commenting on the new movie, star Michael Urie said: “Chad Hodge has written a laugh-out-loud-funny and lump-in-throat-sweet movie that Michael Mayer will effortlessly lift off the page.
“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.”
Single All the Way makes its debut on Netflix in December 2021.
