Netflix drops first trailer for Charlie Brooker's Death to 2020
The mockumentary will be available to stream from 27th December.
Netflix has released the first trailer for Charlie Brooker’s mockumentary Death to 2020.
The show, which is the brainchild of Brooker and his Black Mirror co-creator Annabel Jones, sees several different fictional characters taking a look back at “the dreadful year that was.”
Some of the famous faces glimpsed in the clip below include Hugh Grant as “repellent” historian Tennyson Foss, Lisa Kudrow as a conservative US politician and comedian Tracey Ullman as Queen Elizabeth II.
Samuel L. Jackson, Kumail Nanjiani, Leslie Jones, Stranger Things’s Joe Keery and Diane Morgan are also set to star.
“This landmark documentary-style special weaves together a chorus of narration from some of the world’s most (fictitious) renowned voices with real-life archival footage spanning the past 12 months,” reads the streaming giant’s official plot description.
“Death To 2020 feels like the collision of several different strands. (Do strands ‘collide'? No. Apologies). But the approach for this is quite different to most of the topical comedy I’ve done in the past” Brooker said.
Speaking about the sixth season of Black Mirror, he told the Radio Times that he wasn’t currently working on the script and would rather focus on more comedic projects.
You can stream Death to 2020 from 27th December on Netflix.
