Freeform’s first Thanksgiving feature, “Turkey Drop,” premieres on November 23rd, just in time for the holiday break. Olivia Holt stars in the movie as Lucy Jacobs, and Cheryl Hines stars in the project as Lucy’s mother, Nancy Jacobs. It’s a classic story of Thanksgiving, filled with high-school romances coming to an end as everyone gets back from their first year at college.
The story follows Lucy, a small-town girl who has started her freshman year at a big-city university. When Lucy returns home for Thanksgiving break, she suspects she’s about to get turkey dropped (dumped by her high school sweetheart) during their holiday visit. To avoid a Turkey Day travesty, Lucy gets out of her comfort zone, proving she’s not the same play-it-safe girl she was with her high school boyfriend. The network described the story adding, “As she takes control of her own life and makes choices that put herself first, she learns to let go of what’s been holding her back, helping achieve what she truly wants out of life.”
The network is currently gearing up for its gigantic “25 Days of Christmas” programming event, which starts on December 1st. The new lineup of winter-land delights includes the new Freeform original feature “Ghosting: The Spirit of Christmas,” with Aisha Dee and Kimiko Glenn. That Freeform original airs on December 4th. The new special, tells the quirky and heart-warming story of Jess (Aisha Dee), who goes on the greatest first date of her life, but inadvertently “ghosts” Ben when she tragically dies in a car accident on the way home. Stuck on Earth with no idea how to ascend, Jess will need the help of her best friend Kara (Kimiko Glenn), the only person who can still see and hear her. Kendrick Sampson (“Insecure”) and Jazz Raycole also star in the special.
Later in the month, “Good Trouble” is hosting a special two-hour holiday episode. That episode airs on December 16th, and the full cast of “The Fosters” is guest-starring. Throughout the holiday season, Freeform will also air Christmas classics like “Frosty the Snowman” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” You can also watch the new Freeform original holiday series “Wrap Battle,” and catch other holiday classics like “Home Alone,” all three films in “The Santa Clause” trilogy, “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “The Holiday” and more.
