Co-written by the actor alongside his Lost In Translation director Sofia Coppola and Scrooged scribe Mitch Glazer, with Coppola calling the shots, the special is an homage to variety shows, with Murray playing himself and worrying that none of his guests will show up due to a terrible snow storm in New York. But show up they do, with participants including George Clooney, Chris Rock, Amy Poehler, Jason Schwartzman, Paul Shaffer, Michael Cera, Rashida Jones, Maya Rudolph, Jenny Lewis, Julie White, Miley Cyrus, rockers Phoenix and more ready to crack jokes, sing songs and generally be merry and bright.

“It was sort of something we were just making for ourselves,” Coppola says of the homegrown project. “It really came out of talking to Bill and Mitch, and it just seemed fun to get people together that we’re all fans of. And I like when Bill shows his crooner side. I love putting him in a tuxedo, too: he has a little Dean Martin vibe, I guess.”
