Watch Bill Murray Bring the Yuletide Cheer in the 'A Very Murray Christmas' Trailer

Watch Bill Murray Bring the Yuletide Cheer in the 'A Very Murray Christmas' Trailer

May 22, 2015

We love to spend the holidays with Bill Murray. There's Ghostbusters II on New Year's Eve, Hyde Park on Hudson on President's Day, Groundhog Day on Groundhog Day and, of course, Scrooged at Christmas*. Now we're going to have more of the actor to watch on that last holiday, because he's starring in a special called A Very Murray Christmas, which will debut on Netflix this December.

Fans of Scrooged should be happy with the program, as one of that movie's screenwriters, Mitch Glazer, is now co-writing this with Murray and Sofia Coppola, who is also directing the special. Coppola worked with both Murray and Glazer on Lost in Translation, the former starring and the latter an associate producer on the movie. 

The idea behind the special is that Murray plays himself and he's got a new variety show. But a big storm threatens the TV program by keeping the audience away. Fortunately, he winds up getting help from such stars as George Clooney, Miley Cyrus, Amy Poehler, Jason Schwartzman, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, Rashida Jones, Scrooged co-star David Johansen and Maya Rudolph, whose name is perfect for a Christmas special. There's going to be musical guests, too, including Phoenix and Jenny Lewis.

Watch the very brief teaser for A Very Murray Christmas, which hopefully has some of Bill Murray's brother's to actually make it very Murray, here:
