Samuel L. Jackson Set for ‘Death to 2020’ Comedy Event From ‘Black Mirror’ Creators

Hugh Grant, Lisa Kudrow, Kumail Nanjiani will also star in documentary-style special

Netflix has released a mysterious teaser for Death to 2020, a “comedy event” from the creators of the popular British dystopian sci-fi anthology Black Mirror.

Although the trailer gives little info on the plot of Death to 2020 — other than it’s centered around how terrible this year was — the documentary-style special boasts an all-star comedic cast: Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Grant, Lisa Kudrow, Kumail Nanjiani, Tracey Ullman, Samson Kayo, Leslie Jones, Diane Morgan, Cristin Milioti, Joe Keery and more.

“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,” the logline for the special reads. “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 some of the world’s most (fictitious) renowned voices with real-life archival footage spanning the past 12 months.”

Netflix has yet to share a release date for the special, saying only that it is “coming soon…too soon?”

Death to 2020 is created and executive produced by Black Mirror producers Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones and produced by Alison Marlow.
