If you’re a fan of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror, you might have watched Cunk on Britain, the mockumentary sitcom created by David Mitchell and Robert Webb. Now, the pair is back with their latest creation, Cunk on Earth, an equally funny and biting show that follows the adventures of Philomena Cunk, who is presented as a dim-witted journalist who can investigate almost everything. In the upcoming series, she will be exploring science and technology and giving her interpretations of some of the major inventions and discoveries.
What Is the Show About
After a delay in their schedule, Diane Morgan resumed shooting for her lead role in the Netflix show. She last appeared in Charlie Booker’s Antiviral Wipe. The upcoming show will be produced by Broke & Bones, and Philomena Cunk will unravel human history from the dawn of civilization to the contemporary times of supercomputers and the Internet of Things. She will present the comic spin to some of the most extraordinary tales of human inquisitiveness leading to the discovery of fire, the wheel, even the Mona Lisa, and nuclear power. The series aims to provide a comedic commentary starting from the stone age to the supersonic and the future that is yet to be created.
When and How to Watch
One of the show’s highlights is that the new viewer need not watch previous episodes as they are independent of each other. The series can first be viewed on BBC and will be available on Netflix either in late 2022 or in 2023. The Netflix mockumentary promises to be a riot. Apart from Morgan, the show will also feature special appearances by famous names like Lisa Kudrow, Hugh Grant, Kumail Nanjiani, and Leslie Jones. The focus of the show’s investigations will be culture, science, and art that have defined the development of human civilization. It will also focus on individuals who shaped the human journey with their inspired contributions.
