Zach Galifianakis’ comedic interview sketch series “Between Two Ferns” for Funny or Die is being turned into a film with plans for a global release on Netflix on September 20th.
Galifianakis leads the intentionally low-budget looking interview series where he conducts awkward, combative interviews with famous people ranging from Brad Pitt to Barack Obama among others. 21 episodes have been produced over the past ten years, including a Comedy Central special.
Co-creator Scott Aukerman helms and co-wrote the script with Galifianakis for the film version. The synopsis sounds fairly meta as well:
“Zach Galifianakis dreamed of becoming a star. But when Will Ferrell discovered his public access TV show ‘Between Two Ferns’ and uploaded it to Funny Or Die, Zach became a viral laughing stock. Now Zach and his crew are taking a road trip to complete a series of high-profile celebrity interviews and restore his reputation.”
What guests he’ll enlist for his film version isn’t known at this point.
