TV-Shows News

 

He’s currently shooting the lavishly expensive mob film “The Irishman” for them, and now filmmaker Martin Scorsese is expanding his relationship with Netflix with a little side project reports Deadline.

Scorsese will direct an untitled original comedy special for the streaming giant, a special which explores the legacy of Emmy-winning Canadian sketch comedy series “SCTV”. The series ran for six seasons between 1976 and 1984 and help launch or shape the careers of the likes of John Candy, Rick Moranis, Martin Short, Harold Ramis, Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin and Catherine O’Hara.

Scorsese will reunite Levy, O’Hara, Short, Martin, Joe Flaherty and Dave Thomas in front of a live audience for “An Afternoon with SCTV” which will be moderated by Jimmy Kimmel. The event will be held at Toronto’s Elgin Theatre on Sunday, May 13th with filming to be part of the Netflix special.

While this is official news, this follows on from a rumor earlier this week that Paul Thomas Anderson will direct the latest Adam Sandler comedy special which was shot the other weekend. Screen Crush has now debunked the rumor, saying Anderson was in attendance but isn’t directing – rather he only filmed a portion of the stand-upset. Sandler’s longtime collaborator Steven Brill, who helmed his most recent Netflix film “Sandy Wexler,” is actually directing the special.
