Apple scoops up rights to ‘The Fight Before Christmas’ documentary for Apple TV+

Apple has landed the global rights to the documentary feature film The Fight “Before Christmas,” which will premiere exclusively on Apple TV+ on November 26. The film is the directorial debut from “Three Identical Strangers”producer Becky Read.

About ‘The Fight Before Christmas’

Here’s how the documentary is described: Produced by Dorothy Street Pictures, the doc follows the story of a North Idaho neighborhood turned upside down by one man’s obsession with bringing Christmas cheer to all, through the biggest community Christmas event America has ever seen. Christmas-loving lawyer Jeremy Morris’ plan hits a snag when the home owners’ association informs him that the event violates the rules of the neighborhood. A contentious fight over the festivities erupts and things snowball out of control. As the situation escalates, the film asks the question, who wins when different rights and interests collide? Director Read pieces together the polarized perspectives in this quirky Christmas tale about freedoms, with a message about differences and tolerance at its heart. 

The film is produced by Julia Nottingham and Lisa Gomer Howes, and executive produced by Chris Smith.
