Watch HULU’s ‘Dear Santa, the Series’ Six-part Series Premieres



On the heels of the critically-acclaimed Christmas documentary, Dear Santa about the United States Postal Service’s venerated Operation Santa program – streaming on Hulu and included on the Entertainment WeeklyTown and CountryWomen’s Health and Men’s Health magazine lists of must-watch holiday films – Hulu will debut the new documentary series Dear Santa, The Series tonight: Sunday, December 18 at Midnight Eastern.

The six-episode series takes audiences on an inspiring holiday journey as children across America write letters to Santa and kind-hearted “elves” step up in unexpected ways to make their Christmas wishes come true.

Directed by Dana Nachman (Pick of the Litter, Batkid Begins) and produced by her company, Sweet World Films, along with Chelsea Matter, TRAVERSE32’s Brendan Gaul and Brett Henenberg, and Christopher Karpenko, the series was brought to life by the same team behind the acclaimed IFC Films documentary feature.

Nachman is a veteran documentary filmmaker and former journalist. Her films have received dozens of awards from top film festivals across the U.S. and around the world. Her television news work earned her multiple Emmy® awards, an Edward R. Murrow Award, and a regional AP award. Nachman is a member of the Directors Guild of America (DGA).

This year (2022) also marks the 110th anniversary of Operation Santa. Since 1912, thousands of children and families in need have sent letters to Santa asking for everything from toys to the most basic of necessities. And each year, Santa, through the USPS, has partnered with anonymous human “elves” to fulfill those requests by December 25th.

Dear Santa, The Series has been rolling out this month across ABC’s local stations including WABC in New York, WPVI in Philadelphia, WLS in Chicago, WTVD in Raleigh-Durham, KTRK in Houston, KABC in Los Angeles, KFSN in Fresno, KGO in San Francisco and ABC’s Localish. This is the first time the series is available to stream nationwide on Hulu.

In this new family friendly show, audiences traverse the country to meet some of Jolly Ole’ St. Nick’s most memorable letter writers, the human elves Santa tapped to make their Christmas wishes come true, and the USPS employees who annually make everything possible.

About Accused

From Emmy Award-winning producer Howard Gordon, the co-creator of landmark television, such as Homeland, and the showrunner of 24, comes Accused – a collection of 15 intense, topical and exquisitely human stories of crime and punishment. Each episode is a fast-paced provocative thriller, exploring a different crime, in a different city, with an entirely original cast. Based on the BBC’s BAFTA-winning crime anthology, Accused opens in a courtroom on the defendant, with viewers knowing nothing about their crime or how they ended up on trial. Told from the defendant’s point of view through flashbacks, the show holds a mirror up to current times with evocative and emotional stories. In the end, audiences will discover how an ordinary person gets caught up in extraordinary circumstances, and how one impulsive decision can impact the course of that life – and the lives of others — forever. Developed for American Television by Howard Gordon (Homeland24) and executive-produced by Gordon, Alex Gansa (Homeland24) and David Shore (House, The Good Doctor), Accused once again fearlessly takes on the hottest topics of our time.
