Netflix has named Emma Roberts as the star of their upcoming romantic comedy, “Holidate,” produced by McG ‘s Wonderland Productions.

The story focuses on Sloane (Roberts) and Jackson, both single and both tired of awkward family holiday get-togethers where they either feel judged for being single or are set up with dates they do not enjoy.  When they agree to avoid either outcome by being each other’s dates to such events over the next year, I think we all know what is going to happen.  Its unavoidable.  And, may I add, a total win as an idea for a romcom.

The role of Jackson is still being cast but the hope is to begin production later this year.
