One of the signature shows of comedian Zach Galifianakis will be coming out in movie form this September. Netflix announced plans to release “Between Two Ferns: The Movie” on Sept. 20.
The project is produced by Funny or Die and directed by Scott Aukerman.
Netflix describes the film as “a laugh-out-loud comedy that gives new insight into the curmudgeonly, beloved outsider Zach Galifianakis has created over the years.”
Galifianakis has been receiving acclaim recently for his FX comedy series “Baskets.”
“Between Two Ferns: The Movie” is written by Scott Aukerman & Zach Galifianakis, and produced by Aukerman, Galifianakis and Funny Or Die’s Caitlin Daley and Mike Farah.
Netflix released the following synopsis: “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.”
