Christopher Guest is the latest filmmaker to enjoy the spoils of Netflix.
The mastermind behind films such as Waiting For Guffman, Best In Show, and For Your Consideration is set to debut his latest mockumentary, Mascots, on October 13th. As its title suggests, the film chronicles “the ultra-competitive world of sports mascots where they compete for the most prestigious award in their field, the Gold Fluffy.” So basically, Best in Show but with human furries.
Mascots stars Guest’s usual collaborators, including Bob Balaban, Fred Willard, Ed Begley Jr., Don Lake, Parker Posey, Jim Piddock, Jane Lynch, Christopher Moynihan, and John Michael Higgins along with Zach Woods, Chris O’Dowd, and Maria Blasucci.
