From Black Mirror Creator Charlie Brooker
Black Mirror supremo Charlie Brooker and Hugh Grant are teaming up to make a mockumentary about 2020 for Netflix.
In an interview with Vulture discussing the finale of The Undoing, Grant revealed that he already has his next project lined up.
Grant said –
“I’m doing a thing tomorrow, actually. Charlie Brooker [the creator of Black Mirror] has written a mockumentary about 2020. It’s for Netflix, and I am a historian who’s being interviewed about the year. I’m pretty repellent, actually! And you’ll like my wig.”
While Brooker is best known to international audiences for dystopian sci-fi series Black Mirror, which airs on Netflix, he also produces Annual Wipe, a satirical look back at the year, for the BBC.
Earlier this year, the writer created a one-off special about the pandemic, titled the Antiviral Wipe.
Grant can currently be seen in The Undoing as Jonathan Fraser, an oncologist married to Grace (Nicole Kidman), a therapist. The show is based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’ 2014 bestselling novel of the same name and follows the couple’s unravelling as a major drama changes the course of their lives.
There’s no official word about Brooker’s Netflix mockumentary yet apart from Grant’s tease, but it will more than likely be under the deal that Brooker and Annabel Jones’ production company have with the streamer.
