A Clüsterfünke Christmas
Premiere date: Saturday, December 4 at 7PM with an immediate encore
Synopsis: A Clüsterfünke Christmas is a celebratory parody of the traditional TV holiday romance that follows Holly (Lovell), a go-getter real estate exec from New York City who heads to a small town to buy the quaint Clüsterfünke Inn and transform it into a mega-resort. First, she must convince the inn’s spinster owners (Gasteyer and Dratch) to make the sale. But before she can, she meets their nephew Frank (Jackson), a hot hunk of smoldering woodsman. Will she go back to her fast-paced city life, or will she fall in love with Frank and find the spirit of Christmas? What will she do? What. Will. She. Do… A Clüsterfünke Christmas is a festive cocktail of holiday movie tropes, dripping with sappy syrup and a twist of sexy lumberjack.
