Netflix is spreading out as far as it can. It has original TV shows, it’s picking up potential Oscar-contenders, and now it’s reached the highest echelons of programming: Christmas Specials.
The streaming service has picked up A Very Murray Christmas, which will star Bill Murray as himself. Per Variety, the plot centers on Murray worrying that “no one will show up to his TV show due to a massive snowstorm in New York City. Through luck and perseverance, guests arrive at Gotham’s Carlyle hotel to help him — dancing and singing in holiday spirit.”
Those guests will include George Clooney, Paul Shaffer, Amy Poehler, Julie White, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, David Johansen, Maya Rudolph, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Lewis, Phoenix’s Thomas Croquet, Christian Mazzalai and Laurent Mazzalai, Frederic Moulin, Rashida Jones, Miley Cyrus, and more. That may seem like a lot, but keep in mind that everyone wants to party with Murray.
Sofia Coppola will write and direct the special. Check out the A Very Murray Christmas teaser trailer below. The special will air sometime in December.
