Right now, HBO is giving us the dour “True Detective,” the “Entourage“-y “Ballers,” and “The Brink,” which I presume people are watching since it has been renewed. Next weekend, we get a new David Simon miniseries, “Show Me A Hero.” But this fall, the network is taking things a bit breezy and silly, and they have Will Ferrell to help them with that task.
The comic actor will be arriving with with self-evident title, “Ferrell Takes The Field.” Back in March of this year, in what become a minor viral sensation, Will Ferrell made history by suiting up, heading down to Arizona for Major League Baseball spring training, and played every position on the field for ten different teams, all in one day. Yeah, it was a bit of stunt, but a memorable one, and it was done for charity too. It should be an amusing watch, so check out the trailer below.
“Ferrell Takes The Field” arrives on September 12th.
