Netflix has debuted a new trailer for the comedy mockumentary ‘Death to 2020’ featuring Samuel L. Jackson and Hugh Grant.
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. It 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.
It stars Samuel L. Jackson as “Dash Bracket” – Reporter, New Yorkerly News, Hugh Grant as “Tennyson Foss” – Professor of History, Kumail Nanjiani as “Bark Multiverse” – CEO, Shreekr, Tracey Ullman as “Queen Elizabeth II” – Monarch and Figurehead, Samson Kayo as “Pyrex Flask” – Scientist, Lisa Kudrow as “Jeanetta Grace Susan” – Non-Official Spokesperson, Diane Morgan as “Gemma Nerrick” – Average Citizen, Leslie Jones as “Dr. Maggie Gravel” – Behavioral Psychologist, Cristin Milioti as “Kathy Flowers” – Soccer Mom, Joe Keery as “Duke Goolies” – Gig Economy Millennial and Laurence Fishburne as “Narrator”.
Created and executive produced by Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones, and produced by Alison Marlow. Al Campbell and Alice Mathias both directed the special. Brooker wrote the special with Tom Baker, Kemah Bob, Ken Bordell, Munya Chawawa, Constance Cheng, Alan Connor, Erika Ehler, Charlie George, Eli Goldstone, Mollie Goodfellow, Jason Hazeley, Angelo Irving, Kae Kurd, Ali Marlow, Thanyia Moore, Joel Morris and Michael Odewale.
