The streaming site announced that a film adaptation of the two-time Emmy-winning series (Outstanding Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Program in 2013 and 2014) will come to Netflix later this fall, on September 20. It will be directed by series co-creator Scott Aukerman (
“Zach Galifianakis dreamed of becoming a star. But when Will Ferrell discovered his public access TV show ‘Between Two Ferns’ and uploaded it to Funny or Die, Zach became a viral laughing stock.
