Christopher Guest and his gang of improvisational misfits are back together again and taking on the world of sports…well, sports mascots. And now we know when Mascots is going to hit Netflix.
The streaming service today announced that the direct-to-Netflix mockumentary will go live on October 13. The film, which is about the quest for the coveted Gold Fluffy, will star many of Guest”s usual troupe including Jane Lynch, Parker Posey, Fred Willard and Ed Begley, Jr. It will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
The Emmy- and Grammy-winning Guest is the mind behind such cult classics as This Is Spinal Tap, Best in Show and Waiting for Guffman. Of course he also played with Spinal Tap as the hot-tempered guitarist Nigel Tufnel alongside Michael McKean and Harry Shearer.
