2020 will go down in history due to the coronavirus and all that that brought. Quarantine, school and work from home, not being able to see loved ones. Everybody wants this year to end. To start leaving the feelings of sadness behind, Netflix proposes to say goodbye to these 12 months with a comedy special.
This is a program called Death to 2020, which will feature performances by Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained) , Hugh Grant (The Undoing) y Lisa Kudrow (Friends). The production is in charge of the creators of Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones, who will use elements from that series.
The streaming platform has already launched the first advance on all its social networks. “2020: Such a year [insertá tu adjetivo de preferencia acá] that neither the creators of Black Mirror they could have imagined it … but that does not mean that they do not have something to add, “says the advance, which refers to fiction that works as a satire of reality and was characterized by creating dystopian situations.

The show will have a mockumentary format and will reflect situations of this 2020 with an ironic look. “This special documentary style intermixes some of the world’s most recognized (fictional) voices with real-life archives spanning the past 12 months,” the trailer reads.. The release date, for now, is a mystery.
“A comedy event about the year that nobody will want to remember, that we are still doing. That it will be impossible to forget,” the trailer advances.
Leslie Jones (Saturday Night Live), Joe Keery (Stranger Things), Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), Tracey Ullman (The Tracey Ullman Show), Cristin Milioti (The wolf of Wall Street), Diane Morgan (After Life) y Samson Kayo (Famalam) complete the cast. Although the role that each one will have is unknown, the synopsis anticipates that the script will revolve around the look that the worst-informed commentators have on the events that occurred this year.

Last week, Grant spoke to the magazine New York Magazine about his upcoming jobs and possibly referred to this special: “I’m playing a historian who’s being interviewed about the year. I’m quite repellent, actually! And they’ll like my wig.” However, for now there are no more details about the plot or other characters.
This will not be the first time that Blooker does a program of this style. I think Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe, which aired in the UK on the BBC. The show was a success from its premiere in 2013 to 2016 with 23 episodes in three seasons. The creative commented on a variety of current shows, events, games, and movies. Always with a satirical and humorous look.
On May 14, 2020 a new single episode titled Toallita antiviral, which was seen by 2.9 million people and it was filmed at home by Covid-19. In that episode, the creator of the Netflix series commented on the aspect of politicians in the pandemic and the measures that were taken.
