Netflix has announced that they will debut the comedy satire film “Special Correspondents” worldwide next year.
Eric Bana portrays a struggling New York-based radio journalist who fakes front line war reports from the comfort of his hideout above a Spanish restaurant in the heart of Manhattan.
Ricky Gervais directed the film from his own script and will produce. Chris Coen, Aaron L. Gilbert, Manuel Munz and Larry Sanitsky are also producing.
In a statement, Gervais says: “Having shaken up the TV industry, Netflix is about to do the same to Hollywood. It’s great to be part of the changing future. Ted Sarandos is the new Godfather of entertainment and he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.”
