Netflix has revealed the trailer and cast for Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror special Death to 2020
If you’ve not heard of this project yet, here’s what you need to know:
“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 some of the world’s most (fictitious) renowned voices with real-life archival footage spanning the past 12 months.”
Cast includes Hugh Grant, Samuel L. Jackson, Lisa Kudrow, Leslie Jones, Joe Keery, Kumail Nanjiani, Tracey Ullman, Cristin Milioti, Diane Morgan and Samson Kayo. Charlie Brooker was working towards a sixth series of Black Mirror earlier this year then decided 2020 didn’t need any more dystopia, according to a Radio Times interview. He is writing and executive producing; his Black Mirror partner Alison Marlow is producing.
The trailer can be seen here. The show is marked as Coming Soon — we expect it on or by December 31. We’ll keep you posted.
