Netflix is filming a new comedy series about the Eurovision Song Contest, and it’s going to star Will Ferrell.
The competition is a popular event in Europe, though it might not be as popular in the U.S. It’s likely that, with this move, Netflix is targeting more international subscribers.
Ferrel has been a Eurovision fan for a long time, as The Guardian reports. His wife is from Sweden, and she introduced him to this competition.
Besides starring in the new show, Ferrell will also co-write it together with Andrew Steele.
