NEW YORK, NY - NBC announced today that Tina Fey is set to host an upcoming primetime special titled One Night Only: We’re Just Showing "Sisters" In Its Entirety, in which the network will air the one hour and 58 minute 2015 comedy starring Fey and Amy Poehler in its entirety, sources confirmed.
“With Broadway currently shut down, I think it’s so important for everyone to come together and experience some joy - in the form of this light and heartwarming if somewhat lukewarm studio comedy,” noted Fey while preparing to recreate the fun sister bathtub bit from the film’s poster. “Honestly, I don’t think the film got a fair shake - the new Star Wars really messed things up for us. I’m so excited to give a major platform to something that is so impressive but maybe doesn’t get a ton of national attention - namely, John Cena as a character named Pazuzu.”
The film, directed by Jason Moore, focuses on two mismatched adult sisters (Fey and Poehler) called back to clean out their parents’ home before it’s sold. Representatives for NBC were equally excited by the upcoming special event.
“The movie is currently like $2.99 on iTunes,” noted NBC Head of Programming Lester Deniven while scouring the 99 cent DVD bin at his local Best Buy, just in case. “I thought it might be free on Hulu or like the TBS app or something, but no. I know that three bucks isn’t a lot, but it feels like a lot for this, you know? But I did want to see it when it came out, I just got caught up in the new Star Wars instead. So this is a nice way for me to finally see this movie for free, I guess - unless, wait, is it on Prime?”
Still, some viewers were less tantalized by the major primetime event.
“I saw that movie on a plane like three years ago, and it was fine” noted local account analyst Jen Crut. “If they really wanted to do something special, they’d show Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. You know, the war one she did. That looked interesting. Maybe not, like, good, but interesting. I missed it cause I went to see Rogue One instead.”
At press time, networks were in a bidding war for the next Fey-helmed primetime special: Tina Fey’s New Years Rockin’ “Admission, also starring Paul Rudd” Eve.
