'Best. Christmas. Ever!' is on Netflix Nov. 16
In the first trailer for Netflix's Best. Christmas. Ever!, the pair play old college friends who unexpectedly reunite for the holidays: Jackie (Norwood, 44) has a seemingly picture-perfect life, and Charlotte (Graham, 53), who feels inferior, is determined to find out if it's genuine or a façade.
"Every Christmas Jackie sends a boastful holiday newsletter that makes her old college friend Charlotte feel like a lump of coal," teases an official plot synopsis.
"When a twist of fate lands Charlotte and her family on Jackie’s snowy doorstep just days before Christmas, she seizes the opportunity to prove her old friend's life can’t possibly be that perfect."
Best. Christmas. Ever! is directed by Mary Lambert, who made the 1989 Stephen King film Pet Sematary. The film's cast also includes Jason Biggs, Matt Cedeño, Wyatt Hunt, Abby Villasmil and Madison Skye Validum.
Lambert told Today.com in October that Graham's character "just doesn’t like Christmas" because it "makes her feel inadequate."
She added, "I think there’s a lot of people that feel that way sometimes. And then there are people like Brandy’s character, who embrace the joy and the fun and the belief [of] the season."

"You get together and everybody reacts to the holidays in a different way," Lambert added. "But everybody wants to be happy at the foundation of it all. Everybody really wants to just fight against the darkness and celebrate that the shortest day of the year is gone and it’s kind of going to start getting lighter and brighter from there on."
The director also praised Norwood's contagious positivity on set.
"She just exudes joy and happiness, and when she walks in the room and when she’s ready to be part of the group, everybody is just so happy," she said. "It's like a shining light ... She just sort of breathes you in and then she breathes you back out. And you’re better when she breathes you back out."
