Fitting title for a Netflix — and the life we all lived in — 2020 mockumentary. Also from Charles Brooker, the mastermind behind the world of Black Mirror.
If you’re one of many who’ve cursed the year 2020 more times than you can count, Netflix hears you. The streaming giant just announced Death to 2020, a “comedy event” from the creators of Black Mirror that features some huge names. The announced cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Grant, Lisa Kudrow, Leslie Jones, Joe Keery (of Stranger Things fame), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley and The Big Sick), Tracey Ullman, Cristin Milioti (The Wolf of Wall Street), Diane Morgan (After Life) and Samson Kayo (Famalam).Black Mirror’s creators made a ‘Death to 2020’ Netflix special | Engadget
I don’t know how good or not this will be, but I’m going to watch it tomorrow. Part of me wants to forget most of 2020, because it was among the worst years in my 50+ years. As far as world events go, 9/11 is certainly up there. Strangely enough, we were in Vegas when that happened as well as when Vegas shut down in 2020 for the pandemic. It’s supposed to be the place people go for serendipity, not sorrow.
Are you planning on checking out this mockumentary?
Death to 2020 will be available for streaming on Netflix on December 27, 2020.
