Bill Murray Decks Netflix Halls in First ‘Very Murray Christmas’ Promo
We know, we know. A few weeks out from Halloween, and already Christmas specials are making their presence known. Still, we’re not ones to question Bill Murray, especially if the first promo for his star-studded, Sofia Coppola-directed Netflix special A Very Murray Christmas lives up to its promise.
Streaming on December 4 (Seems early, but again, it’s Bill Murray, go with it), Netflix’s A Very Murray Christmas will feature such impressive names as George Clooney, former Late Show bandleader Paul Shaffer, Amy Poehler, Julie White, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, David Johansen, Maya Rudolph, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Lewis, the band Phoenix, Frederic Moulin, Rashida Jones, and Miley Cyrus.
So reads Netflix’s official logline:
Written by Sofia Coppola, Bill Murray and Mitch Glazer and directed by Sofia Coppola, A Very Murray Christmas is an homage to the classic variety show featuring Bill Murray playing himself, as he worries no one will show up to his TV show due to a terrible snow storm in New York City. Through luck and perseverance, guests arrive at the Carlyle hotel to help him; dancing and singing in holiday spirit.
Watch the teaser again above, and have yourself A Very Murray Christmas on December 4.
