While Netflix has quickly risen to the top as one of the most respected creators of original television content, they are still making baby steps on the feature film front. They released a couple films last year–some more respected than others (never mind RIDICULOUS SIX), but it’s the next year or two that we really need to keep an eye out for.
Coming up soon on their list of exclusive feature films is the comedy SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS, the latest project from comedian Ricky Gervais, and remake of the French comedy of the same name.
SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS follows a struggling radio journalist and his hapless technician faking frontline war reports from a NYC hideout. Needless to say, their “fake reports” land them in a great deal of trouble, and the pair work to climb out of the hole they dug themselves into.
Check out the trailer for the Netflix comedy below!
SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS stars Ricky Gervais, Eric Bana, Vera Farmiga, Kelly Macdonald, Kevin Pollak, Benjamin Bratt, America Ferrera, and RaÃºl Castillo. The film is written and directed by Ricky Gervais.
The film hits Netflix on April 29, 2016.
