Samson Kayo joins Charlie Brooker’s latest project for Netflix, Death to 2020.
Described as a mix between Brooker’s Black Mirror and Wipe series’ Death to 2020′s synopsis is as follows: “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 some of the world’s most (fictitious) renowned voices with real-life archival footage spanning the past 12 months.”
BAFTA-nominated star of Famalam and Sliced Samson Kayo has been announced as part of the cast alongside superstar actor Samuel L. Jackson and comedian/actress Leslie Jones.
Charlie Brooker & his Black Mirror co-creator Annabel Jones will exec produce under their production company Broke And Bones. Wipe producer Alison Marlow is on board to produce. The series is exclusive to Netflix after it invested in Brooker & Jones – which also means they have exclusive rights to all new series coming out of the company.
There are no details as yet when Death to 2020 will air. Rumours say it will be before 2020 ends.
