Netflix has revealed an official trailer for a romantic comedy titled Operation Christmas Drop from Canadian TV director Martin Wood. While gathering evidence as a congressional aide to support closing a tropical U.S. Air Force base, a by-the-book congressional aide warms to its big-hearted captain. This stars Kat Graham, Alexander Ludwig, Aaron Douglas, and Virginia Madsen. Here’s the official trailer for Martin Wood’s Operation Christmas Drop, from YouTube:
Chasing a promotion, congressional aide Erica Miller forgoes family Christmas to travel across the Pacific at her boss’s behest. Upon landing at a beachside Air Force base, she clashes with her guide, Captain Andrew Jantz, who knows her assignment is finding reasons to defund the facility. The pilot’s pet project Operation: Christmas Drop, a genuine, decades-old tradition where gifts and supplies are parachuted to residents of remote neighboring islands has lawmakers wondering if his unit has too much spare energy. Despite their initial opposing goals, Erica softens once she experiences the customs and communal spirit of Andrew’s adopted home.
Operation Christmas Drop is directed by Canadian TV filmmaker Martin Wood, director of the films Teenage Space Vampires and The Incredible Elephant previously, but mostly working in TV for years. The screenplay is written by Gregg Rossen and Brian Sawyer. Netflix releases Operation Christmas Drop streaming starting November 5th this fall.
