The Paley Center for Media is giving viewers a glimpse of the magic behind Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey.
Producer and Grammy award winning John Legend will participate in “Making Holiday Magic! A Look Inside Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey,” a conversation with co-producers Lyn Sisson-Talbert (Almost Christmas, Baggage Claim), Mike Jackson (Rhythm + Flow, Atlanta’s Missing and Murdered: The Lost Children) and writer-director David E. Talbert (Almost Christmas, Baggage Claim).
The holiday themed fantasy musical has become an instant classic by bringing holiday cheers to households around the world on Netflix. Its story follows a toymaker in a rut who is inspired to reconnect with his work by the arrival of his young and inquisitive granddaughter.
By answering her probing questions he reconnects with the purpose behind his mission. The film celebrates the power of love, family and imagination and features a talented cast of Forest Whitaker, Keegan-Michael Key, Hugh Bonneville, Anika Noni Rose, Madalen Mills, Phylicia Rashad, and Ricky Martin.
The event is part of the Paley Front Row series. Previous conversations in the series have explored Girls Trip, BET’s First Wives Club and HBO’s Westworld.
“We are delighted to present this heartwarming and entertaining conversation with the creative team behind this critically acclaimed holiday special that conveys a message of love, family, and community that is synonymous with the season,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO.
“Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey epitomizes why Netflix has become one of the top destinations for holiday entertainment,” she added.
Journalist Tre’vell Anderson, who penned our cover story profile on Billy Porter last July, will moderate the conversation.
“Making Holiday Magic! A Look Inside Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey” will premiere on the Paley Center’s Yahoo Entertainment Channel on Monday December 14 at 8:00 pm EST/ 5:00 pm PST.
