Rowan Atkinson is back in a Netflix series that will see the cherished comical star dealing with down his most significant obstacle yet … a bee. A trailer launched today for Man Vs Bee sees Atkinson shine in his normal environment of physical humor as he handles the stinging insect while it totally damages his world. Buzzing onto the platform on June 24, the production was co-created by Atkinson and William Davies (How to Train Your Dragon, Puss in Boots) with David Kerr (No Offense) acting as writer and director. Davies likewise holds a credit as manufacturer along with Chris Clark under Clark and Atkinson’s HouseSitter banner.

The trailer for Man Vs Bee sets the phase for the series with Atkinson’s Trevor standing prior to a judge in a courtroom as his charges read. While the judge adds claim after claim, Atkinson plays the part he was born to have fun with all the feeling worldwide spread throughout his face. We’re then reclaimed to how all of it unfolded with Trevor landing a task as a housemaid at a vast estate. The brand-new task is something that wows his household as it appears the accident-prone man hasn’t had the ability to keep anything for long. Our honey-seeking villain then appears, and the slapstick takes place with Trevor heading out of his method to damage the bug. As Trevor lives it up in his short-lived house, his fight with the bee raves on and makes us question if your home will still be waiting completion of the series.


The physical humor is laid on thick, however what else might we anticipate from an Atkinson-starring production. With his abovementioned unequaled facial performing and severe skill for handling a bumbling personality, the function of Trevor is a best suitable for the Blackadder star. Although the teaser doesn’t provide us lots of take a look at the ensemble cast, it will be comprised of Jing Lusi, Claudie Blakley, Tom Basden, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Greg McHugh, and India Fowler.

While Man Vs Bee assures to drop Atkinson into a world that he prospers in, we’re questioning how it will turn itself into a powerful series. If it were a movie, that would make good sense. A neat 90 minutes of Atkinson being terrified by a bee and triggering mayhem in his wake is something, however a nine-episode series is totally various. We’re questioning how the story will move from episode to episode and how the momentum will be maintained. For this, we’ll simply require to wait till the series strikes Netflix in a month. You can see what all the buzz has to do with in the trailer listed below.
