Dubbed Jennifer Hudson: I'll Be Home for Christmas, the hour-long primetime music special will follow Hudson as she travels to her native Chicago "to share childhood memories of the music, people and places that set the stage for her phenomenal success," according to ABC.
"I am thrilled that Jennifer chose ABC to be the home for her very first holiday special," said ABC executive Vicki Dummer. "I can't wait to hear her take on Christmas classics as we discover what she loves about her hometown of Chicago."
A specific airdate for the holiday special has yet to be scheduled. It will be produced by Tall Pony Productions.
