“Tonight will go down as the greatest night in history” is the only real line of dialogue provided in the above teaser for the upcoming Netflix special, but we’re inclined to believe Bill Murray when he says it. “A Very Murray Christmas,” starring Murray and a crazy assortment of guest stars, looks to be exactly that.
The official synopsis, from Netflix: “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.”
In the above teaser and the below photos , we get glimpses of the incredible array of stars who’ll stop by to make Murray’s Christmas bright, including George Clooney, 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, Miley Cyrus, and more.
“A Very Murray Christmas” premieres December 4 on Netflix; because Santa knows we’ve been very good this year, apparently.
