At a glance

  • Actor Tim Allen talked about what it took for him to once again don the red coat for the new “Santa Clause” streaming show after saying that the third film “overshot the runway.”
  • “As I get older in my performance career, it’s all about words on paper,” Allen explained. “When streaming increased the demand for content, I knew it was coming, so I said, ‘Show me some words.’ It took a long time to get to that communication.”
  • “I thought we overshot the runway on number three, and I wanted to rein it in,” he added. “[I said], ‘If you have another story, let’s get together with some writers,’ and they ended up getting Jack Burditt, who penned ‘Last Man Standing.’
