Hulu is sweetening up your holidays with Candified: Home for the Holidays, a four-part unscripted series where Candy Queen Jackie Sorkin and a team of participants build a functioning life-sized home made entirely of candy. The platform just released a delicious first trailer ahead of the show’s December 1 premiere.
According to the clip, the 1,000 sq. ft. home will feature surfaces, accessories, and pieces of furniture all made of candy.
“Hundreds of thousands of pieces of candy,” said Sorkin of how many sugary treats are used to build the house. One of her artists shared they also used “600,000 sugar cubes” and “96,000 cupcakes.”
There are, of course, some bumps along the way including a giant candy penguin named Mr. Squeekers losing its head in a terrible kitchen accident, leaving the artist in tears. What’s not fun about making a giant candy house? Well, Sorkin repeats throughout the teaser that they’re all under an insane amount of stress to successfully complete their task within 6 weeks.
Candified also stars Chris Fernandez, Genevieve Chan, Amanda Touch, D. Micah Lindsey, Basia Whitely, Caroline Habash, and Mandy Bui.
It is produced by Bright Spot Content, the All3Media-backed production company behind Hulu’s Baker’s Dozen. It is exec produced by founder Sandy Varo Jarrell as well as Suzanne Rauscher and Brian Robel.
