Bill Murray’s star-studded Netflix Christmas special gets release date

Paul Schaffer, George Clooney, Bill Murray and Miley CyrusThere’s been buzz about a Bill Murray Christmas special being in the works for quite a while now, but knowing how much of a joker Bill Murray is, no one entirely believed it was actually going to happen.

Yesterday, the special not only received a release date on Netflix and a name, but a trailer was released and based on that, we think it may be the best Christmas special ever.

Sofia Coppola is directing it, and guest stars include Amy Poehler, George ClooneyChris Rock, Michael Cera, Maya Rudolph, Rashida Jones, Jason Schwartzman, Miley Cyrus and Paul Shaffer, to name a few.

Bill Murray wrote the special along with co-writers Sofia Coppola and Mitch Glazer. It begins streaming on December 4th and is titled A Very Murray Christmas. Watch the trailer, which features Bill announcing, “Tonight will go down as the greatest night in history!”

We can’t wait. Are you going to watch it?[poll id=”887″]

    Actually, try not watching it because it’s on Netflix. Not all of us have that and it’s such a shame that such great shows are not made available on more main-stream tv. Losing out to a lot of audience as we dont’ all have those specialty channels.

    Are you actually serious Gwen? Netflix is cheaper than any cable package @ a whopping 7.99 a month so why do you do what the rest of us do and cancel your cable and get a few of these services, it’s still way cheaper. And millions of people have Netflixs, so believe me when I say they really don’t care about your complaints. I don’t get HBO so I miss out on all their shows, but I don’t complaint about it… I don’t feel entitled to every single thing if I don’t pay for it.
