Netflix To Present ‘A Very Murray Christmas’, Starring Bill Murray
Bill Murray’s Christmas special is a go! Netflix has signed on to distribute A Very Murray Christmas, Deadline reported this morning.
The 25-second teaser, apparently scheduled to coincide with Netflix’s announcement, doesn’t reveal a whole lot, no. In it, a Very Dour Murray stands at a picture window overlooking the city, then turns to face the camera, forlorn, while wearing a pair of festive reindeer antlers.
If you detect strains of Lost in Translation here, it’s for good reason: Murray’s holiday special will be directed by Sofia Coppola. She, Bill Murray, and Mitch Glazer — screenwriter of Scrooged, another holiday classic — are all on writing duty.
The holiday variety show is set to feature special guests including Rashida Jones, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Chris Rock, Jason Schwartzman, Paul Shaffer, George Clooney, and Miley Cyrus.
A Very Murray Christmas arrives on Netflix this December.
