‘Black Mirror‘ creator Charlie Brooker is said to reunite with Netflix for a mockumentary on the year 2020. The year embodying the coronavirus pandemic and possibly the worst year of our lives.
The new show will feature Hugh Grant, the famous Notting Hill star. Netflix is keeping details the hidden under the carpet. The British actor spilt the bean revealing that he is playing a “repellent” historian with a wig in the series.
Brooker returns to the BBC with a special episode painting the pandemic picture in his famous Annual Wipe series. It is a darkly comic hark back at the news events and cultural moments of the year, in May.
Living Through the 2020 Horror Story!
This year has been by far the worst that we’ve ever had the displeasure of experiencing. At least for most of us. Now, that’s not to say it was entirely horrible, because there were some light moments in a cave of utter darkness. The problem with that is they were such a precious few, we can probably count them on fingers.
Brooker will have plenty to mine for the mockumentary. There is no shortage of global events to parody, from the COVID pandemic to the US presidential election.
Brooker has a mysterious skill of demonstrating the current spirits people feel. He put the use of this ability into with Black Mirror, and this new mockumentary will prove to be no exception.
