Broadcasting on CBS Soon

The CBS Television Network will broadcast An Elf’s Story Friday, November 25, 8:30pm ET/PT. CBS is proud to kick off the holiday season with the new Christmas family classic. An Elf’s Story follows one of the many scout elves from the North Pole who helps Santa Claus determine who to put on the naughty and nice lists. Named “Chippey” by his adoptive family, the elf is assigned to help a young boy, Taylor McTuttle, who struggles to believe in the magic of Christmas. The Elf on the Shelf is a popular children’s storybook created by Carol Aebersold and her daughters, Chanda Bell and Christa Pitts, who self-published the book through their company CCA and B. The story was inspired by an Aebersold family tradition featuring their own pixie elf, Fisbee, who appeared in their home every holiday season. Since 2005, The Elf on the Shelf has sold nearly two million copies. Big Canoe Entertainment (BCE) is the Atlanta-based production company that created An Elf’s Story. BCE was formed in 2010 by Christa Pitts, Catherine Scorsese, Chad Eikhoff, Chanda Bell, Carol Aebersold, Tara Burtchaell, and Kenneth Waddell. Trick 3D executed the animation for the film. An Elf’s Story is BCE’s first project.
