Netflix has just proved that it’s never too early to start preparing for the holiday season.

The streaming service announced Friday that it’s picking up A Very Murray Christmas, a special starring Bill Murray and written and directed by Sofia Coppola.

Paying homage to classic variety shows, the special follows Murray playing himself as he worries that no one will show up for his TV show thanks to a massive snowstorm in New York City.

Naturally, help arrives in the form of singing and dancing courtesy of a star-studded cast including George Clooney, Amy Poehler, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, Maya Rudolph, Rashida Jones, Miley Cyrus, Jason Schwartzman and more.
