Discovery+ launched its “Holiday Lane” hub on NOVEMBER 1, which gives fans the opportunity to escape into holiday entertainment with competition, drama, and romance series that they crave this time of year. 

The holiday hub showcases four new scripted features: Designing Christmas follows two competitive hosts of a reality home makeover show. Stella (Jessica Szohr), an interior designer, and contractor Pablo (Marco Grazzini) come together for a stunt to renovate a house by Christmas. With a little advice from her mentor, Freddy (HGTV’s Hilary Farr), Stella reveals her complicated feelings for Pablo, redesigning their loves lives in the process. One Delicious Christmas explores the story of Abby Richmond, (Vanessa Marano) who inherited the struggling Vermont culinary destination, Haven Restaurant and Inn. After a blunt review from critic Tom Kingsley (Food Network’s Bobby Flay), Abby enlists the help of hot-shot chef Preston Weaver (Alex Mallari Jr.) to help liven the menu and secure an investment from restaurant mogul Alexandra Grandfield (Kathy Maloney). A Gingerbread Christmas follows aspiring architect Hazel Stanley (Tiya Sircar) who discovers her late mother’s bakery has fallen on hard times and she worries a piece of her will be lost forever. Hope for the shop — and her love life — rises when she enters a gingerbread competition led by food celebrity Mark Clemmons (Food Network’s Duff Goldman) with life-changing prizes. A Christmas Open House stars Katie Stevens as Melissa Norwood, an ambitious Atlanta property stager, who joins forces with her old high school crush David Phelps (Victor Rasuk) to sell her newly married mom’s home in their small Georgia hometown with some additional help from artists Henry and Sarah Wright (HGTV’s Ben and Erin Napier).
