Once Upon A Sesame Street Christmas Coming to HBO!

We heard word that Sesame Street was in producing a new Christmas special, and now we have the proof!

HBO, as the current home for all new episodes of Sesame Streetwill premiere Once Upon A Sesame Street Christmas at 7pm on November 25th!
And as is the case with all of HBO's shows, it will be rebroadcast many times over the next month, as well as streaming on HBO Go.

For those who don’t have HBO, it will be available for free during a two-week window, Dec. 12–26, via participating affiliates.

From the official Press release:
ONCE UPON A SESAME CHRISTMAS opens with the lyrical number “Holiday Lights,” a musical glimpse into the homes of Sesame Street families celebrating winter holidays, and unfolds into a fanciful bedtime story that brings the past alive. After a day of holiday fun, while being tucked into bed on Christmas Eve, Elmo asks, “Why do we leave cookies out for Santa?”
As his father spins a tale about a dreary Sesame Street of yesteryear, a place so unfriendly not even Santa Claus would visit, viewers are transported to a period-perfect 19th-century city neighborhood, with characters in authentic hand-sewn costumes, but marked by unkindness and a serious lack of holiday spirit. Luckily, Elmo’s great-great-great-grandmonster moves into the neighborhood with the best of intentions and endless good will, gradually winning over the unhappy citizens and bringing kindness and cheer to Sesame Street once and for all.”
Guest stars include Zosia Mamet (HBO’s “Girls”); Tony Award winner Audra McDonald (HBO’s “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill”); and Jim Gaffigan (“The Jim Gaffigan Show”).
