In A Very Murray Christmas, Bill Murray's holiday TV show is in shambles after the New York City weather shuts down production
That toasty feeling you’re experiencing isn’t from chestnuts roasting on an open fire–it’s Bill Murray‘s holiday cheer, in the new trailer for his highly anticipated Netflix holiday special, A Very Murray Christmas.
Inspired by classic Christmas celebrations from TV’s golden age, A Very Murray Christmas features Murray in full yuletide funk as a New York City storm strands his celebrity guests and halts production. (Check out PEOPLE’s first look!)
Stuck at the city’s famed Carlyle Hotel with the likes of Paul Shaffer and Amy Poehler, Murray attempts to resurrect the show with help from wherever he can get it.
It turns out that his options aren’t too shabby, as stars from Chris Rock to George Clooney and Miley Cyrus make their way to the set of his shindig, with Cyrus crooning “Sleigh Ride” with a tux-clad Murray.

The special, directed and co-written by Sofia Coppola, is a nod to Murray as a song stylist, and a throwback to yesteryear.
“It just started from wanting to see Bill sing and our fondness for those old Christmas specials that were on TV in the ’70s and ’80s,” Coppola previously revealed to PEOPLE.
So how did the pair recruit such an impressive cast? “Bill is friends with George [Clooney], so that’s how he came on. Then, we wanted a pop starlet,” said Coppola. “I had met Miley through Marc Jacobs and she seemed really game and nice, so I asked through a friend.”
A Very Murray Christmas premieres Dec. 4 on Netflix.
