If you haven’t already noticed, Hallmark isn’t the only place to get your feel-good Christmas movie fix this year. Netflix’s first foray into the genre, A Christmas Prince, made headlines this week when the streaming service’s official Twitter account roasted over-eager fans of the flick, and on Friday, the company will release its second original Christmas movie. We can already tell it’s going to be an instant classic.
Christmas Inheritance stars The 100‘s Eliza Taylor as Ellen, a hard-partying socialite who wants to inherit her father’s company. But her antics have her father (Neil Crone) second-guessing his daughter’s ability to properly represent the business, so he sends her to his small hometown, conveniently named Snow Falls, to deliver the family’s traditional Christmas letters — and to learn the true spirit of the company along the way.
While there, she meets the humble (and handsome!) local inn employee played by The Office‘s Jake Lacy. Sparks fly as he teaches her the value of hard work and helping others, but it all comes crashing down when her fiancé shows up to surprise her. (The film also stars Hallmark Channel staple Andie MacDowell, natch.)
Like A Christmas Prince, Christmas Inheritance seems to follow a formula that fans love, and it’s sure to deliver all the warm fuzzies you’re looking for this holiday season. Catch it on Netflix starting Friday, December 15.
