Bill Murray is determined to have A Very Murray Christmas in the new trailer for the comedian’s upcoming Netflix special.
The film is directed by Sofia Coppola, and co-written by Murray, Coppola and longtime friend and frequent collaborator, Mitch Glazer (Scrooged, Rock the Kasbah).
“It was sort of something we were just making for ourselves,” Coppola previously said of the homegrown project, which marks the first time she has worked with Murray since 2003’s Lost in Translation. “It really came out of talking (to Bill and Mitch), and it just seemed fun to get people together that we’re all fans of.”
The series is set at The Carlyle Hotel after an unexpected blizzard halts production on Murray’s holiday broadcast. He instead invites all of his friends to join him at the hotel for a night of singing and celebration. From George Clooney to Amy Poehler to Rashida Jones and more, everyone seems to love Bill Murray…except Michael Cera.
The special is described as “homage to classic holiday variety shows,” and heads to the network in December.
