Ready to start the holidays from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and WWE Studios is the story behind “Santa’s Little Helper.”

Dax (Mike ‘The Miz’ Mizanin) is a man with little cares in the world. What I mean is that Dax literally doesn’t care about anyone or anything but himself. Of course things are about to change because slick businessman Dax get’s fired from his job and the good life is about to be repossessed.

Tis the season as Santa (Eric Keenleyside) has been keeping an eye on him. Enlisting the help of Billie (AnnaLynne McCord), Santa wants to discover if Dax has what it takes to become his second-in-command.

One elf who isn’t happy about it all is Eleanore (WWE’s Diva Paige) who wants the job and is going to do whatever it takes to get it. But we all know that being naughty doesn’t look good on a resume.

Dax, Billie and Santa know what needs to be done to bring ho-ho-ho back into the holidays!

Mizanin as Dax takes his role to the limits of entertaining. Starting off as the narcissistic care-not-at-all, he becomes desperate when Santa’s elf shows up at his door. Being tested for all the right qualities, Mizanin gives his character the right amount of silliness to make the story endearing.

McCord as Billie must deal with her insecurities about having round human ears instead of pointy elf ones. Wanting to be Santa’s second-in-command, she believes in doing what is best for Santa and the children of the world. McCord is charming, sweet and doesn’t fall to hard for Daxs’ shenanigans.

Paige as Eleanore gets a chance to be as bad as she wants to be. Finding all ways and means to stop Dax from becoming Santa’s second-in-command, Paige is the right amount of snide and equally sporting.

Keenlyside as Santa is everything one would expect from jolly old Saint Nick. Popping in and out you can be sure Santa’s agenda has a purpose.

Other cast include: Kathryn Kirkpatrick as Mrs. Claus, Geoff Gustafson as Fitz, Tom McLaren as Harvey, Dyland Schmid as Marcus and Karen Holness as Miriam.
