Fruitcake is a 10-episode comedy miniseries, set during Christmastime, about a college guy with commitment issues. One night he has too much to drink, and decides to end the suspense by mailing his girlfriend an engagement ring - in a box of fruitcake. When he wakes up and realizes what happened, he rushes over to explain, but his girlfriend acts like nothing's wrong. Since nobody actually eats fruitcake, she had cheerfully re-gifted the box without even opening it. Which is exactly what the next person to receive the fruitcake does. And the person after that . . .
