CULVER CITY, California—October 25, 2022—’Tis the season. Amazon Studios’ first Original holiday movie Hotel for the Holidays, starring Madelaine Petsch (Riverdale) and Mena Massoud (Aladdin), will premiere exclusively on Amazon Freevee in the U.S., UK, and Germany on December 2. Petsch and Massoud lead an ensemble cast that includes Max Lloyd-Jones (The Book of Boba Fett), Kayleigh Shikanai (American Gods), Jami Belushi (According to Jim), Neil Crone (It), and Jayne Eastwood (My Big Fat Greek Wedding).
Hotel for the Holidays revolves around an ensemble of staff and guests at the charming Hotel Fontaine in New York City during Christmastime. Madelaine Petsch stars as Georgia, an ambitious young woman and the manager of the high-end hotel that attracts guests of all kinds—including heartbroken singles, an infamous pop star, and a European ex-prince who recently abdicated his throne—all looking to escape from their everyday lives and come to the hotel as a sanctuary over the holidays. Georgia’s work and personal life become entangled when she is caught between the hotel chef Luke (Mena Massoud) and Raymond (Max Lloyd-Jones), the sophisticated ex-prince staying at the hotel during the holidays. The storylines of Georgia and the hotel’s eclectic guests twist, turn, and come together, as they unexpectedly find friendship, love, and inspiration.
Hotel for the Holidays is created by Brad Krevoy and executive produced by Krevoy, Lorenzo Nardini, and Amy Krell on behalf of the Motion Picture Corporation of America, along with producer David Anselmo, and executive producers Susie Belzberg Krevoy and Ernie Barbarash. The film is directed and executive produced by Ron Oliver, and written by Maggie Lane and Margarita Matthews.
