Every holiday has its traditions, but there are none more universal than the awkward family gathering. That’s the truth Netflix hopes to tap into with its newest multi-cam sitcom, Merry Happy Whatever, starring—among others—Dennis Quaid, Ashley Tisdale, and comedian Brent Morin. And though the first season focuses on Californian Matt (Morin) heading to chilly Philadelphia for Christmas to meet his girlfriend’s complicated family, the series reportedly plans to tackle other holidays with each subsequent season.
