Man Vs Bee Release Date: Rowan Atkinson will return to the world of physical comedy in Man Vs Bee, a new Netflix series about a man’s battle with a pesky bug.
Thanks to the international success of the comic character Mr. Bean, Atkinson is a familiar face to millions of fans all around the world, and Netflix will be hoping the actor will break through with global audiences.
Atkinson developed the series with the help of Will Davies, with whom he had worked on the Johnny English film franchise. Here’s what we know about the show, which will undoubtedly pique the interest of fans…
What Will Be the Storyline of Man Vs Bee?
In a statement, Netflix explained the idea of the new show: “In this hilarious comedy, renowned actor and comedian Rowan Atkinson plays a new character.
While housesitting a magnificent estate, a guy finds himself at odds with a bee. Who will triumph, and how much irreversible harm will be done as a result?”
The show is one of several produced by Netflix in the UK, following the establishment of a UK team to develop production in the nation.
Original Series Vice President “Setting up an entirely UK-based team was always about being able to better connect to the fantastic program-makers we have here — to provide a space for writers, producers, directors, and actors that feels local, friendly, and familiar while also giving talent the opportunity to make shows that will have a global impact,” Anne Mensah said.
Who Will Be Starred in Man Vs Bee?
Rowan Atkinson and Johnny English writer William Davies are collaborating on the new series. In keeping with the theme, David Kerr, the filmmaker of Man vs Bee, also had Johnny English in his first picture.
When it comes to the actors, the bumbling Trevor (Rowan Atkinson) and his arch-enemy, a CGI bee, will take up most of the screen time. However, there will be several other characters, all of whom will be performed by well-known actors.
Jing Lusi (‘Crazy Rich Asians’) will play the posh house’s owner, while Julian Rhind-Tutt (‘Notting Hill’) will play her husband.
Trevor’s ex-wife will be played by Claudie Blakely (Pride and Prejudice), while the Gardener will be played by Greg Mchugh. Aysha Kala plays the detective, and Chizzy Akudolo plays the judge.
Along with Rowan Atkinson, we now know who else will appear in Man Vs Bee. Jing Lusi, who starred in Crazy Rich Asians, has been cast in the role of mansion owner Nina, whose home is being house-sat by Rowan Atkinson’s character.
Nina’s husband Christian is played by Julian Rhind-Tutt (Bridget Jones’s Baby), the Gardener is played by Greg McHugh (Fresh Meat), and White Lines star India Fowler plays a character named Maddy.
Trevor’s ex-wife is played by Claudie Blakley (Manhunt), while the Police Officer is played by Tom Basden (After Life).
The Great Comedian Mr. Bean Has Returned
The great comedian has returned. Rowan Atkinson (‘Mr. Bean,’ ‘Johnny English,’ and ‘Blackadder’) will appear in the forthcoming Netflix comedy series ‘Man vs Bee.’ The new teaser depicts the comedian’s battle with a single bee, and the film is sure to be as ludicrous as it sounds.
Rowan Atkinson, star of the highly successful and beloved Mr. Bean, will star in a new movie this summer, Man vs. Bee. In 1979, Atkinson made his acting debut in The Secret Policeman’s Ball, a television spectacular in which he played himself.
The English comedian has appeared in over 30 television programs and 20 films during the course of his career.
Most of us know him from the British sitcom Mr. Bean, in which he plays a childish man who, most of the time, unwittingly causes problems for himself and those around him.
What is the Status of the Man Vs Bee Production Team?
The first season will consist of ten episodes, each lasting between ten and twenty minutes.
This is a Netflix-exclusive short-runtime format, akin to Mr. Bean. During the summer of 2021, the Netflix series was shot. According to HertsLive, filming took place in both London and Bovingdon, Hertfordshire.
“Word of Rowan Atkinson being in town rapidly spread, with many people coming outside to take a look,” according to The Bovingdon Villager newspaper. Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, was also used for filming.
The little town is located in central England, around an hour’s drive north of London. In the same town, you’ll find the famous Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery.
The series is now in post-production as of November 2021. This series is one of many that Netflix is producing in the UK after establishing a UK team to develop production in the nation.
“Setting up a team entirely based in the UK was always about being able to better connect to the fantastic program-makers we have here — to provide a space for writers, producers, directors, and actors that feels local, friendly, and familiar while also providing talent with the opportunity to make shows that will have a global impact,” said Vice President, Original Series Anne Mensah.
Man Vs Bee Trailer
The Man Vs Bee trailer has finally arrived on Netflix, and it shows some of the mayhem that bumbling dad Trevor produces while attempting (and failing) to rid Nina’s elegant mansion of the bothersome bee.
Man Vs Bee Release Date
Man Vs Bee will be available on Netflix on June 24, 2022, joining some of the other summer blockbusters on the service. It will be divided into ten episodes, each lasting only ten minutes.
‘Bumbling dad Trevor tries to outsmart a crafty bee while house-sitting a fancy mansion – but only causes more mayhem,’ according to the official Netflix synopsis.
The teaser depicts Trevor getting himself into all kinds of problems while trying to get rid of the pesky insect, including reckless driving, breaking ornaments, and even pictures of him with a flamethrower. Fans of ‘Mr. Bean and ‘Johnny English’ will undoubtedly feel nostalgic as a result of these absurd happenings.
From June 24, 2022, the crazy new Netflix humor will be available on the streaming site. There will be ten episodes, each of which will be roughly ten minutes long. These brief episodes will further add to the show’s chaotic atmosphere.
