Man Vs Bee is the latest from the vault of Rowan Atkinson and it can’t come soon enough. After a difficult 2020, all that everyone really needs is a fun time and it’s here. Never will anyone get enough of Atkinson’s comedic genius and every major streaming platform knows it. However, Netflix is the victor for this round among many that we’ll see this year.
Every once in a while you do seem to reminisce about the classic physical comedy of Mr. Bean. Those cravings will be put to bed with this brand new show in the upcoming months. Also, it’s evident that often we do get a movie or a series that attempts physical comedy and fails miserably. The Bean brand of comedy is so attractive but also very difficult to nail, that does make it a double-edged sword.
Details about the production so far and what to expect:-
While the title pretty much gives away the plot of the series but we can never think of Rowan as predictable. The show has been written and created by Atkinsons himself along with William Davies. HouseSitter Productions are behind the project and will be expecting lots from this show.
Netflix UK’s Twitter handle was the source for the official announcement for the show. On December 14th, 2020, in a series of tweets, the streaming company was happy with a simple call. Following was the teaser tweet put up by Netflix UK:-
“MAN VS BEE: Renowned actor and comedian Rowan Atkinson plays a new character in this riotous comedy. A man finds himself at war with a bee while housesitting a luxurious mansion. Who will win, and what irreparable damage will be done in the process?”
As long-time fans of the legend, we are all licking our chops on this massive release. Like Tom & Jerry chasing each other in a massive mansion, it’s bound to be a fun ride. The king of physical comedy has his work cut out. Meanwhile, he’ll have 10 episodes of pure TV with a Bee as his co-actor.
