Joel McHale, Lauren Graham, and Robin Williams are set to star in the dysfunctional holiday comedy A Friggin' Christmas Miracle. Prolific television helmer Tristram Shapeero, whose credits include Community, Parks and Recreation, and Veep, is attached to direct Friggin' Christmas as his feature debut. Production is set to begin in late March in Atlanta.
Written by Wreck-It Ralph scribe Phil Johnston, the story follows Boyd Mitchler (McHale) and his wifeLuann (Lauren Graham) as they spend a dreaded Christmas with Boyd’s father Mitch (Williams) and his family of misfits. Upon realizing that he has left all of his son’s gifts at home, Boyd hits the road with his father and younger brother in an attempt to make the eight-hour round trip before sunrise.
This actually sounds like a great story and the talent is all there. Let's just hope they can do better than Billy Crystals Parental Guidance.
