Merry early christmas: miley cyrus is doing a netflix holiday special with bill murray
Because it’s never too early for a Christmas wish to come true, Netflix announced today that it will debut its very own holiday variety show special in December, starring the one and only Bill Murray, and featuring the best lineup of celebrity guest stars we have ever seen.
The special will be called “A Very Murray Christmas” and will feature Murray as himself, hosting a holiday special whose success is jeopardized by a terrible snowstorm.
According to the press release, Bill Murray “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.”
Said guests are a lineup of celebrity stars including George Clooney, Amy Poehler, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, David Johansen, Maya Rudolph, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Lewis, Phoenix, Rashida Jones, and Miley Cyrus, among others.
And it gets better: The whole thing is being written and directed by Sofia Coppola, the brain behind the amazing “Lost in Translation” starring Murray alongside Scarlett Johansson.
Also, there’s a teaser video featuring a morose-looking Bill Murray wearing a pair of fuzzy reindeer antlers and gazing out over New York City. Can it please be December already?
