Netflix has announced a comedy special from Black Mirror creators Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones, entitled Death to 2020.
The mockumentary will have an all-star cast playing fictitious ‘renowned’ historians, looking back at the landmark year of 2020 with real-life archival footage from the past twelve months.
Hugh Grant (The Undoing) will be playing one such historian and will be joined by Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction), Lisa Kudrow (Friends), comedian Leslie Jones (Saturday Night Live) and Kumail Nanjiani (The Lovebirds).
Diane Morgan (Motherland) will once again be collaborating with Charlie Brooker for the upcoming special, but she will not be reprising her Philomena Cunk character from Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe.
Stranger Things star Joe Keery will also star in Death to 2020, as well as Samson Kayo (Truth Seekers), Cristin Milioti (How I Met Your Mother) and Tracey Ullman (Mrs America).
Death to 2020 has been produced by Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones’s production company, Broke And Bones.
