Freevee Streaming App Jumps Into Original Film Content With Rom-Com ‘Hotel for the Holidays’

Formerly known as IMDb TV, Amazon’s ad-supported free streaming service Freevee possesses several original shows including a ‘Bosch’ sequel. Now they appear to be taking the next step by acquiring the distribution rights to the romantic comedy ‘Hotel for the Holidays’ as its first original holiday movie.

“Freevee announced today that its first Original holiday movie, ‘Hotel for the Holidays,’ has cast Madelaine Petsch (Riverdale) and Mena Massoud (Aladdin) as the romantic leads. The film will debut this holiday season exclusively on Amazon Freevee in the U.S. and UK,” Amazon said in a statement.

Directed and executive produced by Ron Oliver, it was created by Brad Krevoy. The feature also stars Max Lloyd-Jones (The Book of Boba Fett) as Prince Raymond, Kayleigh Shikanai (American Gods) as Pandora, Jami Belushi (According to Jim) as Kiki, Neil Crone (It) as Milton, and Jayne Eastwood (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) as Florence. There is no official release date, though Freevee has said that the film will debut this holiday season.

Amazon also released some first-look images from the movie:

Freevee describes the synopsis as follows,

“Hotel for the Holidays revolves around an ensemble of staff and guests at the charming Hotel Fontaine in New York City during Christmastime. Georgia (Petsch) is an ambitious young woman and the manager of the high-end hotel, which 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 during the holiday season. Georgia’s work and personal life become entangled when she is caught between the charming hotel chef Luke (Massoud) and the sophisticated ex-prince staying at the hotel. The storylines of Georgia and the hotel’s eclectic guests twist, turn, and come together, as they unexpectedly find friendship, love, and inspiration.”

Originally titled FreeDive in 2019 before becoming IMDb TV that same year. It would morph into Freevee in 2022.
