Debuting after HBO Max’s launch next year, the unscripted series will follow a group of singletons as they look for love in time for the holiday season.

Set in a “winter wonderland,” the prospective couples will begin their romantic journey at a Christmas castle, where they will take part in festive holiday traditions like ice skating and sleigh rides. The singles will ultimately choose who they want to take home for the holidays.

12 Dates of Christmas is produced by All3Media’s Objective Media Group America, with Jilly Pearce and Layla Smith exec producing.

Michael Beilinson created the show, while Sam Dean is showrunning exec producer and Suzy Ratner is co-exec producer.

“12 Dates of Christmas is inspired by our love of Christmas romcoms past and present. It’s a romantic, fun and feel-good dating show with a difference, and has the perfect home with HBO Max,” said Pearce.

Jennifer O’Connell, HBO Max’s exec VP of original non-fiction and kids’ programming, added: “The holidays can be a magical time for budding relationships and where better to find your perfect match than in this real-life fairytale castle in the snow? Viewers can grab some hot cocoa, watch the romance unfold and be charmed right along with these hopeless romantics as they search for a Christmas miracle – true love.”
