Ever since we first heard that Bill Murray would be starring in a Sofia Coppola-directed Christmas special for Netflix alongside a slew of famous people like George Clooney, Amy Poehler and Miley Cyrus, we've been waiting to see a glimpse of the production. And today we've got our first taste of A Very Murray Christmas, which shows Uncle Bill preparing for a live holiday show broadcast inside NYC's iconic Carlyle Hotel only to panic after he learns that a blizzard is going to thwart his plans. Like a cross between an old-school Andy Williams Christmas special and one of Hugh Hefner's retro episodes of
Playboy's Penthouse, the trailer shows how Murray saves the show with a series of performances and pop-ins by friends and hotel staff.
The special airs on December 4th, the same day a 7" will come out featuring Murray, Phoenix (who will appear on the show), Paul Shaffer, Jason Schwartzman, and
Buster Poindextersinging an original song, "Alone on Christmas Day." Watch the trailer above.
