Actor Peter Porte calls his new holiday film Yuletide the Knot “the little movie that could.” The actor, who currently stars as Dimitri on DAYS OF OUR LIVES and previously played Ricky on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, is thrilled that the romantic comedy is finally going to be seen by viewers when it premieres on Sunday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. ET on UPtv.
“I got the script in 2019 and was excited to come on board as an actor as well as producer,” Porte explained on Instagram. “After months of planning, we were headed to Colorado with truckloads of Christmas decor and a start date of March 13… 2020.
“Three years, countless pivots, pulled favors, and a pandemic later, my tenacious and wildly talented cast and crew made and sold a movie and I couldn’t be more proud,” he continued. “Let’s all get in the holiday spirit together!”
In Yuletide the Knot, Mary Antonini stars as Rachel, a small-town wedding planner tasked with planning a Christmas ceremony for an influencer couple. But her big plans hit a major snag when she is partnered with the bride’s manager, Logan (Porte), who is actually a combination of her first love and high school sweetheart. Will the magic of the season bring these two together in true love? Oh come on — what do you think?!
Check out a preview for Yuletide the Knot below and then be sure to tune in on Sunday on UPtv to see the result of years of patience and hard work!
