Lacey Chabert to Star in Netflix's 2024 Holiday Rom-Com 'Hot Frosty'

Netflix has announced that Lacey Chabert, known for her role as Gretchen Wieners in Mean Girls, will star in the upcoming holiday romantic comedy Hot Frosty. The film, set to release during the 2024 holiday season, tells the story of Cathy, a widow who magically brings a handsome snowman to life two years after losing her husband. As the snowman helps Cathy laugh, feel, and love again, the two fall in love just in time for the holidays.

Joining Chabert in the cast are Dustin Milligan (Schitt's Creek), Craig Robinson (Killing It), Joe Lo Truglio (Brooklyn 99), Katy Mixon (Mike & Molly), Lauren Holly (Dumb and Dumber), and Chrishell Stause (Selling Sunset). Stause shared her excitement about the film, saying, "I absolutely love Christmas, so to walk up to a set that is a full town completely decked out, I got instantly excited!" She also praised Chabert, noting, "She is the absolute sweetest... When someone is the star of the movie and yet so gracious to everyone regardless of how big their part is, it makes for such a happy crew and experience."

Hot Frosty is directed by Jerry Ciccoritti (My Life with the Walter Boys) and written by Russell Hainline (The Santa Summit). The film is produced by Joel S. Rice (Single All the Way, A Tourist's Guide to Love) and Michael Barbuto (Never Too Late to Celebrate, Catch Me if You Claus) for Muse Entertainment, with Aren Prupas and Jonas Prupas serving as executive producers. Hot Frosty is part of Netflix's 2024 holiday slate, which also includes Our Little Secret starring Lindsay Lohan and Meet Me Next Christmas starring Christina Milian.

Lacey Chabert has become a staple in the holiday film genre, recently starring in numerous movies, mostly for Hallmark. Her recent projects include Haul Out the Holly: Lit Up, A Merry Scottish Christmas, and the franchise The Wedding Vale. She will soon be seen opposite Kristoffer Polaha in The Christmas Quest, also for Hallmark.

With its heartwarming premise and talented cast, Hot Frosty promises to be a delightful addition to Netflix's growing collection of original holiday content.
