Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Grant, and Lisa Kudrow star in Death to 2020 a mockumentary by Charlie Brooker streaming on Netflix this December 27th. Also starring in this satirical look back at the worst year in human history is Joe Keery from Stranger things, Leslie Jones, and Kumail Nanjiani who will add to the cast of experts, politicians, and average citizens who recount the events of 2020.
One treat will be seeing Tracey Ullman playing the Queen. The film promises to tell the story of the most “Historic year in history.” It appears to be a sign of comedy on Netflix evolving beyond just stand up specials and narrative series to more experimental formats. We’re hoping this lets us see more sides to our favorite actors because streaming is proving to be the place where the A-list can flex their talent muscles to an audience that is more than willing to stream anything.
