Santa and Pete

Available on UP Faith & Family, Pluto TV, Prime Video, Tubi TV, Plex
It's the first Christmas without Grandma and a difficult time for the family, until Grandpa (James Earl Jones - Star Wars, Field of Dreams) decides to share a story with his ten-year-old grandson Terence. It's the story of Santa and Pete, a tale that has been handed down for generations. As the story unfolds, we too are transported to faraway lands and mystical events as the Old World's Saint Nicholas is transformed into modern day Santa Claus. At first, Saint Nicholas (Hume Cronyn - Cocoon, Shadow of Doubt), the patron saint of children, travels the world alone, performing small miracles and keeping track of his young followers in the sacred book of life. On his way Saint Nicholas is arrested, accused of being a spy, and is sent to a Spanish prison where he may have to spend the rest of his days, until an energetic young man, Pete (Flex Alexander - She's All That) come to his rescue. Santa and Pete become a team dedicated to making children happy. When they cross the Atlantic to the new world in winter, they trade their horse carriage for a reindeer-pulled sleigh, and Santa accepts a new thick red coat, made for him by Native Americans. Everywhere they go they bring lasting harmony, peace and happiness. A timely tale of racial harmony, promoting peace and equality, featuring superb performances by James Earl Jones, Hume Cronyn and Flex Alexander.
