But as Peter's mother Carole has set up Peter on a blind date with her handsome spin instructor (Luke McFarlane), the fake romance plan begins to unravel.

'Single All The Way' cast — Michael Urie on playing Peter 

Playing Peter in Single All The Way is Michael Urie who rose to fame with his breakout role as Wilhelmina’s endlessly sarcastic assistant Mark St. James in the comedy drama Ugly Betty and its spin-off Mode After Hours.

Michael says of Single All the Way: "You can expect pageantry, wine, hunky Santas, a little bit of deception and a whole lotta do-gooding,’ laughs Michael Urie. ‘Peter’s parents are played by Barry Bostwick and Kathy Najimy, a combination that scientists agree can only produce gay sons who love Christmas. Peter's spent many Christmases perfecting choreography to a Britney Spears Christmas song with his nieces. And it is perfect! He has a fern named Judith, is trapped in a social media job he doesn't love and is always single when he goes home for the holidays!’

Michael has also starred in The Good Wife, Almost Family, and American comedy-drama Younger. He popped up as a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2015.
