Netflix has unveiled the first trailer for Ricky Gervais comedy Special Correspondents.
The film, which stars the British comedian and Eric Bana, is written and directed by Gervais. It follows a struggling New York-based radio journalist, whose arrogance and decadent lifestyle has hindered his career. With his job on the line, he fakes front line war reports from the comfort of his hideout above a Spanish restaurant in Queens.
The film is a co-production between Bron Studios and Unanimous Entertainment, with Gervais also producing, alongside Unanimous’ Chris Coen, Bron’s Aaron L. Gilbert, Manuel Munz, and Larry Sanitsky. Jason Cloth and Ron McLeod are executive producers.
The talent in front of the camera is even more impressive, with Correspondents’ ensemble including Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel, Up in the Air), Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire, Brave), Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects, Casino), America Ferrera (Ugly Betty, How to Train Your Dragon), Raúl Castillo (Looking, Cold Weather), and Benjamin Bratt (Modern Family, 24: Live Another Day).
The movie will premiere worldwide exclusively on Netflix on Friday 29th April. Here’s the trailer:
