Bill Murray and the Farrelly Brothers Team Up for Quibi Comedy 'The Now'
Ghostbusters and Lost in Translation actor Bill Murray has signed on to play a recurring role in the Farrelly brothers' new comedy series The Now.
Dave Franco, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Daryl Hannah, Jimmy Tatro, Alyssa Milano, Rob Yang and Lex Scott Davis will also star in the show for the Quibi mobile-device streaming service.
The series is billed in a press release as a "comedy that examines what exactly makes life worth living."
"For Ed Poole (Franco), clarity comes when a secret from his past has seemingly destroyed his future. He soon 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."

Peter Farrelly also co-wrote and directed this year's Best Picture Oscar winner Green Book.
The show will be a contemporary remake of the beloved 1999 high school film.
