Pee-Wee Herman is returning to TV thanks to Netflix and Judd Apatow.
Pee-wee’s Big Holiday is the latest film to star Paul Reubens as the iconic character, with he and Judd Apatow producing. John Lee (Broad City, Inside Amy Schumer) makes his feature film directorial debut with production beginning in early 2015.
In the movie, a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires Pee-wee Herman to take his first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny.
“As a fan of Pee-wee Herman since he first appeared on The Dating Game, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the brilliant Paul Reubens on this film. It is a dream come true,” said Judd Apatow.
“Judd and I dreamt up this movie four years ago. The world was much different back then— Netflix was waiting by the mailbox for red envelopes to arrive. I’ve changed all that. The future is here. Get used to it. Bowtie is the new black,” said Pee-wee Herman.
