Freevee, the free streaming service from Amazon, has cast Riverdale’s Madelaine Petsch and Aladdin star Mena Massoud in its first Original Christmas movie.
Debuting this holiday season exclusively on Amazon Freevee in the US and UK, 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.
The film’s cast also includes 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.
