At this evening’s FYSEE Event for My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman in Los Angeles, Zach Galifianakis announced that a Between Two Ferns movie is coming to Netflix globally on September 20, 2019.
The movie will be based on the talk show hosted by Galifianakis in which he and his celebrity guests trade insults. In addition to the online series, an episode was filmed for Comedy Central as a television special as well.
Between Two Ferns: The Movie is directed by Scott Aukerman from a script by Aukerman and Galifianakis. The producers are Aukerman, Galifianakis, and Funny Or Die’s Caitlin Daley and Mike Farah.
In the movie, 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.
Between Two Ferns: The Movie is a laugh-out-loud comedy that gives new insight into the curmudgeonly, beloved outsider Zach Galifianakis has created over the years.
You can watch a lot of the previously-released Between Two Ferns videos at the Funny Or Die YouTube channel.
