Netflix nabs Christopher Guest's 'Mascots' mockumentary

Netflix Gives Parents Full Year of Maternity/Paternity Leave

Christopher Guest is making his next mockumentary for Netflix.

The streamer said on Tuesday that Guest will make Mascots for Netflix, to debut in 2016. The movie, to mirror earlier mockumentaries like The Best in Show and For Your Consideration, Guest's last film, will be set around a mascot competition competing for top prize.

"Welcome to all the drama, intrigue and occasional excitement of The 8th World Mascot Association Championships, where a group of 'unusual' men and women, with big heads and furry suits, compete to win the prestigious gold fluffy award and be crowned best mascot in the world," the flyer advertised.

There's no word on casting for Mascots, or whether long-time collaborators like Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara and Parker Posey are on board.
