Little bummer boy

Netflix has a wealth of original programming these days, but last week we found out that the streaming service has been working on its very own Christmas special starring Bill Murray. Now, the first sigh-filled teaser is available to watch, and it is as Bill Murray as it gets.

The special is called "A Very Murray Christmas," and according to Variety the plot revolves around Bill Murray playing, you guessed it, Bill Murray:

In "A Very Murray Christmas," the comedian worries no one will show up to his TV show due to a massive snowstorm in New York City. Through luck and perseverance, guests arrive at Gotham’s Carlyle hotel to help him — dancing and singing in holiday spirit.

The special will star George Clooney, Paul Shaffer, Amy Poehler, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, Maya Rudolph, Miley Cyrus, and more, and will also reportedly be full of Christmas carols; basically, "A Very Murray Christmas" will just be a people-filled version of "A Muppet Family Christmas." It also reunites Murray with Lost in Translation director Sofia Coppola, which means the teaser's bar-piano soundtrack and Murray's dissatisfaction with a beautiful, dark cityscape make much more sense.
