SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Santa’s making his list, checking it twice… and undergoing a secret investigation in Nickelodeon’s brand-new original TV movie Santa Hunters, premiering Friday, Nov. 28, at 7:00p.m. (ET/PT). The film, which stars Benjamin “Lil P-Nut” Flores Jr. (The Haunted Hathaways), Breanna Yde (The Haunted Hathaways) and Mace Coronel (Nicky Ricky Dicky & Dawn), follows nine-year-old Alex (Flores) as he sets out to prove to the world that Santa is real. However, unexpected consequences from Alex’s meddling may cause Santa to lose his Christmas powers forever.
In Santa Hunters, Alex and his cousins Zoey (Yde) and Richard (Coronel) create an elaborate setup of traps to catch Santa on tape, but their plan backfires when they realize that seeing Santa will cause him to lose his Christmas magic. The kids have to protect the tape to save Christmas, learning that believing is more important than seeing.
