HBO Max is ready to sleigh the holidays with its seasonal Max Original adult animated series, Santa Inc., from Lionsgate Television and Seth Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures. The streamer has officially unveiled the key art and first-look images and expletive-laden trailer for the project, announced in May 2020.
Starring co-creator Sarah Silverman as a disgruntled elf ready to shake up the white male hegemony of the North Pole, all eight stop-motion episodes drop Thursday, December 2.
