Spend Christmas with Bill Murray in this special show

Bill Murray is a prince among men, and you can spend Christmas with him thanks to this new special, A Very Murray Christmas.

Wait, so what is this?

The show is directed by Sofia Coppola (reteaming with Murray after Lost in Translation) and is a story about Murray worrying that no one will show up to his Christmas special. But we're pretty sure they do and its an excuse to get lots of famous folks in the same room as Murray, and also to line them up with their busy schedules to they don't have to actually meet eachother.

It's a bit weird to even bother having Coppola at the helm but the cast speaks for itself - Bill Murray, George Clooney, Paul Shaffer, Amy Poehler, Julie White, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, David Johansen, Maya Rudolph, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Lewis, Rashida Jones and Miley Cyrus. Something for everyone, it has to be said. And we're pretty sure Clooney does eventually meet up.

It only runs for an hour and will be a nice slice of entertainment before the Christmas madness begins in earnest.

A Very Murray Christmas hits Netflix on the 4th of December 2015.
