Lights, Camera, Christmas!

‘Tis the season to be jolly — possibly all the way to the bank.

TVLine has learned exclusively that ABC this December will untangle and put on display Lights, Camera, Christmas!, a new competition series in which 16 families from across America trick out their homes in ways that would make even Clark Griswold envious — all with their eyes on a grand prize.

The 16 families — chosen through a nationwide search, based on their previous Christmas light displays, choreography and over-the-top designs — will compete four-at-a-time in weekly playoffs, after being given 21 days to make their homes as merry as can be.

The four finalists will then be flown to a surprise location (the North Pole? Whoville?) to compete for the best Christmas gift ever, $50,000. The series is produced by FremantleMedia North America’s Thom Beers and Jennifer Mullin and exec producers Brady Connell and Max Swedlow (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition).

(Not sanctioned by ABC is TVLine’s own plan to fine any of the finalists $50K, should they leave their lights up past Jan. 15.)

Will you be tuning in for this twinkly Christmas display? Have any neighbors who this competition was made for?
