Netflix Adds Ricky Gervais’ “Special Correspondents” To Its Feature Film Slate

(via The Hollywood Reporter)

Netflix said they weren’t going to slow down and they’re keeping to their word.

Taking projects one by one from traditional media and distribution channels, Netflix already has a Pee Wee Herman movie from Judd Apatow coming their way and now has added Special Correspondents starring Ricky Gervais and Eric Bana on top of that.

Special Correspondents will follow journalists on the radio making up stories and the mess that follows. So a bit of Wag The Dog, Orson Welles’ War of The Worlds, perhaps?

We have a feeling that you should get ready for more of this sort of announcement from Netflix very soon.
