“What A Sh*t Show!“, yes folks 2020 has been a year to forget in many emotional, dark, drastic ways. You don’t need me to spell everything out, well let Charlie Brooker do it instead in Death To 2020.
Described as the ‘Netflix Original comedy event‘, this year might one big laugh and sometimes best way to reflect on the year is to laugh. Black Mirror co-creator Brooker (with Anabel Jones who is also involved in this) promise to deliver a satirical funny look on the year. A mockumentary that looks back on the year with a host of actors including Samuel L.Jackson recounting the year as reporter for the fictional New Yorkerly News.
Netflix have today have released the film’s Trailer teasing what we can expect. 2020 is certainly like one very long episode from Black Mirror, love Brooker’s brand of humour, you’ll dig this one… cue trainwreck!
2020: A year so [insert adjective of choice here], even the creators of Black Mirror couldn’t make it up… but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a little something to add. Death to 2020 is a comedy event that tells the story of the dreadful year that was — and perhaps still is? 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.
The cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Grant, Kumail Nanjiani, Tracey Ullman, Samson Kayo, Lisa Kudrow, Diane Morgan, Leslie Jones, Cristin Milioti, Joe Keery and Laurence Fishburne, Death to 2020 is promoted as the cathartic comedy event you’ll never forget about the year you really, really don’t want to remember.
Death To 2020 premieres Sunday, 27th December, only on Netflix.
