Netflix revealed the trailer of its newest Holiday season-themed show called ‘Merry Happy Whatever,’ yesterday. The series stars Dennis Quaid as Don Quinn, a strong-willed family father that likes to do things on his own way during Christmas.
And problems start when Matt (Brent Morin), her daughter’s (Bridgit Mendler) boyfriend wants to ask her to marry him. Here’s the official synopsis prepared by Netflix:
“Set during the happy but hectic days before and after Christmas, “Merry Happy Whatever” follows Don Quinn (Dennis Quaid), a strong-willed patriarch from Philadelphia doing his best to balance the stress of the holidays with the demands of his close-knit but eclectic family — and his family doing their best to manage him. But when youngest daughter Emmy (Bridgit Mendler) arrives home from L.A. with a new boyfriend, struggling musician Matt (Brent Morin), Don’s belief that “there’s the Quinn way… and the wrong way” is put to the test. From Emmy Award-winning creator Tucker Cawley (Everybody Loves Raymond), Merry Happy Whatever is a hilarious and heartwarming comedy that proves while family may not come wrapped up in a neat little bow, it sometimes can still be the greatest gift.”
‘Merry Happy Whatever’ stars Quaid, Mendler, Morin; former Disney star, Ashley Tisdale who plays Emmy’s sister who isn’t a great fan of Matt; Siobhan Murphy, Adam Rose, Hayes MacArthur, and Elizabeth Ho. Garcelle Beauvais and Tyler Ritter are guest stars.
The comedy show was created by Tucker Cawley, who is also the showrunner and executive produces with Aaron Kaplan, Wendi Trilling, Dana Honor, and Quaid.
‘Merry Happy Whatever’ will premiere on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, on Netflix. Enjoy the trailer below:
