Death to 2020 Netflix Comedy Event Trailer

Death to 2020 Netflix Comedy Event from the creators of Black Mirror who tell the story of the year they themselves couldn’t have written

Death to 2020 claims to be “The definitive story of the most historic year in history.” “The story that couldn’t be told until now, because it was still happening.” and asks the question “Will this be on Quibi?”

The overly epic and dramatic trailer brings a welcome bout of levity to the brevity of this year. I’m personally very excited about what the Black Mirror creators have in store for a year that seems to have watched their show and say “Hold my beer.” Here are quotes from Charlie Booker and Annabel Jones shared to us from Netflix:

Charlie Brooker: ‘Those who only know me through Black Mirror may not realize that when not writing speculative sci-fi about people frowning at smartphones, I’ve spent years making comedy shows in the UK –  including many topical comedy specials. So to me, Death to 2020 feels like the collision of several different strands. (Do strands ‘collide’? No. Apologies). But the approach for this is quite different to most of the topical comedy I’ve done in the past. For one thing I’m not on screen presenting it –  a relief for anyone watching in 4K – and it’s more character-based. In the loneliest year on record, I got to work (remotely) with writers and team members from my previous comedies, as well as many sickeningly talented people who were new to me.
Death to 2020 features fictional characters discussing real events in a bombastic mockumentary, but quite a bit sillier than that makes it sound. It felt like an apt format for Netflix, which is known for high-end documentaries, but also like a good opportunity to create a different kind of comedy special that deals with the year head-on while also showcasing some brilliant performers. I don’t love the word “satire” but there’s some of that here, alongside some angry jokes, and some goofy jokes. And hopefully viewers will find at least one joke to their liking — because let’s face it, in 2020, any laugh you can emit, no matter how fleeting, is a small but precious victory.’
Annabel Jones: ‘This year has been unusual in many regards but what’s unified this year is the main stories we focus on – huge global stories, stories that affect the whole world, so we knew what the structure of the show was going to be with quite a few surprises along the way!’
The Netflix Comedy Event is coming this weekend, December 27th to be exact, to close out the Christmas weekend and start the countdown to the end. Continue reading below for some images from the event and the program details from Netflix:
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. Death to 2020 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.
Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Grant, Kumail Nanjiani, Tracey Ullman, Samson Kayo, Lisa Kudrow, Diane Morgan, Leslie Jones, Cristin Milioti, Joe Keery and Laurence Fishburne, Death to 2020 is the cathartic comedy event you’ll never forget about the year you really, really don’t want to remember.
Death to 2020 is 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.
Death to 2020 premieres Sunday, December 27th, only on Netflix.
