Quibi might be a pretty small little service, but they are somehow pulling some major talent in to star in their upcoming series. Variety just broke the news that Bill Murray will be joining Dave Franco in the new series The Now, which will be directed by Dumb and Dumber’s Peter Farrelly.
“The Now” centers on Ed Poole (Franco), who is about to take his own life when he finds out from his mother that his brother just died by suicide and his dad also did in the past. Ed quickly realizes the only thing that will make his life worth living is to “forget the past, screw the future and just live in the now.”
Sources say Murray has already wrapped up shooting his part, while production on the series is still underway.
Others set to join Franco and Murray in the short-form show include O’Shea Jackson Jr., Daryl Hannah, Jimmy Tatro, Alyssa Milano, Rob Yang and Lex Scott Davis.
