More than twenty years after working on “Kingpin” together, actor Bill Murray and filmmakers Peter and Bobby Farrelly are reuniting for the new short form streaming series “The Now” for Quibi.
Dave Franco leads the cast a man that is on the verge of committing suicide but then finds out from his mother that his brother just killed himself and his father did the same thing previously. This leads the helpless man to change his life.
Murray has reportedly agreed to play a recurring role in the upcoming series that is created and produced by the Oscar-winning filmmaker. Murray’s role has not been revealed but it has been reported that he’s already completed filming of his parts even as the series is in the middle of production.
O’Shea Jackson Jr., Daryl Hannah, Jimmy Tatro, Alyssa Milano, Rob Yang, and Lex Scott Davis co-star. Both the Farrellys will serve as directors and are joined by Pete Jones and Steve Leff as writers.
The news comes as the previously reported on “Varsity Blues” series for the Quibi service has been given the greenlight with Tripper Clancy (“Stuber”) attached to pen the script based on the 1999 high school football film.
Quibi is set to launch in April and is focused on the mobile streaming audience.
