Netflix will release A Very Murray Christmas on December 4th.
The holiday special, which was directed by Sofia Coppola, is an homage to the variety show. Bill Murray plays himself as the show’s host, facing a New York City snow storm and potential no show guests.
Given the cameos in today’s teaser we’re going to assume that it all works out.
George Clooney, Paul Shaffer, Amy Poehler, Julie White, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, David Johansen, Maya Rudolph and Jason Schwartzman are all part of the ensemble cast which also includes musicians Jenny Lewis, the band Phoenix (singer Thomas Mars is married to Coppola) and Miley Cyrus.
Will it become another timeless Murray holiday classic in the vein of Scrooged? We can only hope.
