Let’s Bring This Year To An End

Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming mockumentary feature, Death To 2020 from Black Mirror’s Charlie Brooker.

The mockumentary will see the cast, which also includes Samuel L Jackson, Hugh Grant, Lisa Kudrow, Joe Keery, Leslie Jones and Kumail Nanjiani, play a series of “experts, politicos, monarchs and average citizens” as they look back at 2020.

Grant is made up as “repellent” historian Tennyson Foss, Kudrow takes on the role of non-official spokesperson Jeanetta Grace Susan while Tracey Ullman plays the Queen.

Created and executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones, the creative team behind the anthology series Black Mirror, the new special will close out 2020 by highlighting events from the past year through a comical viewpoint, including the pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement and the 2020 Presidential election.

Brooker previously shared a cryptic teaser for the project, which said –

“2020. Even the creators of Black Mirror couldn’t make this year up. But they do have something to add.”

Death To 2020 will be available on Netflix starting on December 27th.
