Comedy legend Rowan Atkinson aka Mr Bean is back with a new original Netflix series Man Vs Bee, and from the looks of it, the show will set the house ablaze with laughter.
The official trailer for Man Vs Bee premiered on Thursday, May 26, kicking off with Atkinson on trial for dangerous driving, destruction of property and setting a house on fire, among other obnoxious things he did. But you wouldn't believe the cause of his adversity, and supposedly neither will the judge. 'There's this bee,' Atkinson (Trevor) says to the judge.
Taking us back, the trailer shows how the monstrosity began with Trevor taking a job to housesit a luxurious mansion. His family is impressed with his new job, considering how his clumsiness has cost him several jobs in the past. However, our black and yellow striped bug antagonist appears, sending Trevor into a frenzy to destroy it at all costs.
What ensues is physical humor laid on thick, as you’d expect of the comic. And no one shines in physical humor better than Atkinson. Even his face itself is comical!
