According to Deadline, Kal Penn has been tapped in to play Simon Choksi, an ambitious game inventor and product developer and a devoted single father. Simon can talk the tech-mogul talk but can’t walk the walk, and his dreams of being the next Bezos fall drastically short. But all that changes after a visit to the North Pole.
The Santa Claus will see Tim Allen reprise his role as Scott Calvin/Santa Claus and Elizabeth Mitchell reprising as Scott’s wife, Carol Calvin/Mrs. Claus. “Scott is on the brink of his 65th birthday and realizing that he can’t be Santa forever. He’s suddenly starting to lose his Santa magic, and more importantly, he’s got a family who could benefit from a life in the normal world, especially his two kids who have grown up at the North Pole. With a lot of elves, children and family to please, Scott sets out to find a suitable replacement for Santa while preparing his family for a new adventure in a life south of the pole.”
The upcoming limited series is being developed by Last Man Standing creator Jack Burditt with Jason Winer directing and executive producing along with Jon Radler for Winer’s Small Dog Picture Company. Jack Burditt also serves as a showrunner and executive produces alongside Tim Allen, Kevin Hench, Richard Baker and Rick Messina.
