Rowan Atkinson in Netflix's new comedy series 'Man vs Bee'
Sometimes, you hear an idea for a movie or TV show and become instantly convinced it will work. Netflix has stumbled upon one of those instant-winner ideas.
Netflix released the trailer for Man Vs Bee, a new comedy series in which a bumbling dad named Trevor, played by Rowan Atkinson, inadvertently gets into a war against a singular bee. Start polishing every Emmy.
To be a little more precise about the plot, Trevor has found a job, which in itself is apparently so momentous that it is worth calling his family to inform of the development.
The job is to house-sit a posh mansion, which should be simple enough, except that Trevor discovers a bee in the house. He accidentally breaks a statue belonging to the homeowner while trying to get the bee, and thus begins a series of escalating, maddening events that can only be described as Man Vs Bee. It will ultimately involve slapstick, flamethrowers, and court appearances, so, again — start polishing every Emmy.
The Man Vs Bee trailer might be the most charmingly dumb thing to come around in a while, and casting Mr. Bean himself in the role is nothing less than a masterstroke. Let us hope this series lives up to its full potential when it arrives on Netflix on June 24, 2022.
