“Twas the Night,” a musical anthology series, is in the works at Disney+ from David E. Talbert.
In “Twas’ the Night,” Santa Claus, now retired to civilian life, indulges his grandchildren in their favorite family tradition, sharing stories of his magical adventures. Only this year, they’re not interested in the ones with happy endings. This year, they insist he tell them about that One Night, that one fabled night, where everything went wrong. And the One Family who made it right.
Becky Hartman Edwards (Firefly Lane )is executive producing.
Talbert is writing and is executive producing with his wife and producing partner Lyn Sisson-Talbert through their Golden Alchemy Entertainment.
Per Deadline, Talbert and Sisson-Talbert have a first-look deal for Golden Alchemy at Netflix to write, direct and produce movies following the success of Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey, which the duo produced and Talbert wrote and directed.
After starting as a playwright, Talbert broke into directing on the studio level with First Sunday. He followed with films Baggage Claim, based on his novel, and the holiday-themed Almost Christmas and El Camino Christmas, the latter of which he made for Netflix.
