Christopher Guest Doing 'Mascots' for Netflix

August 11, 2015

Get ready to look beneath the oversized heads of mascots and, presumably, at the gawkish Eugene Levy faces beneath. Netflix has just announced Mascots, the film that will be Christopher Guest's follow-up to For Your Consideration and his HBO series Family Tree. Like most of the Waiting for Guffman and Best in Show director's efforts, the movie will be a mockumentary centered on the participants of a big event--this time, "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." We can only hope that it will deviate from Guest's prior efforts in not showing a marked decline from its predecessors. Come on, Chris, wha' happened?
