“It’s a genius idea, a holidate,” Chenoweth says. “I actually had a guy in college who was my holidate. He was gay, and I was not, but I was not in the mood to be serious with anybody. It wasn’t a time when he could come out, so we were together on holidates. So, when I read the script I was like, Ding, I lived it. Differently, but I lived it.”

The cast also features Andrew Bachelor, Jessica Capshaw, Manish Dayal, Alex Moffat, Jake Manley, and Cynthy Wu.

Holidate is directed by John Whitesell with a screenplay by Tiffany Paulsen and produced by McG and Mary Viola. Steven Bello, Jenny Hinkey, and Paulsen are executive producers with Max King and Corey Marsh as co-producers. Rounding out the creative team are director of photography Shane Hurlbut, production designer John Collins, editor Emma E. Hickox, costume designer Helen Huang, and composer Dan the Automator.
