Bless HBO! Will Ferrell & Molly Shannon Are Covering the Royal Wedding as Cord & Tish

Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon will reprise their parody anchor personas for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, so yeah, pop the bubbly.

Not only will the SNL alums cover the upcoming wedding on May 19 in London, but they’ll also do it as their fake commentator characters, Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan.

That’s right, HBO will broadcast The Royal Wedding Live with Cord and Tish! at 7:30 a.m. ET and again at 9:45 p.m. ET. (Because once is never enough.) Tim Meadows, along with other special guests, will help the duo cover the festivities.

The special will be produced by Ferrell, Shannon, Andrew Steele (SNL), Mike Farah (Billy on the Street), Bellamie Blackstone (@midnight) and Funny or Die. Ferrell will also pen the script.

We first met Cord and Tish earlier this year when they starred in Amazon’s parody special The 2018 Rose Parade Hosted by Cord & Tish. If their debut is any indication, Prince Harry and Markle have no idea what they’re in for.

Only 18 more days…
