Olivia Holt is coming out with the brand-new holiday film Turkey Drop slated to premiere on Freeform. The studio swooped in to announce the upcoming film which is going to premiere during Kickoff to Christmas next month.
Joel S. Rice, Lydia Storie, and Henry Huang executive produced the Thanksgiving flick. Schitt’s Creek director, Jerry Ciccoritti, is set to direct with the film itself being written by Adventures in Babysitting writer, Tiffany Paulsen. Jonas Prupas and Shane Boucher will take on the task of producers.
Turkey Drop will follow Lucy Jacobs, a country girl starting her freshman year in university. On her first trip back from Uni, she worries she is going to be “turkey dropped”, a term coined by a person on a long-distance and or long-term relationship, that gets dumped by their high school sweetheart often around Thanksgiving.
Fearing the worst, Jacobs goes out of her way to prove that she isn’t the same safety-first girl she once was to her boyfriend.
The press release didn’t say when the film would start other than during Kickoff to Christmas this November.
