The news was confirmed by Hugh Grant, who revealed his casting in the project during an interview with Vulture. “I am a historian who’s being interviewed about the year,” he told the publication. “I’m pretty repellent, actually! And you’ll like my wig.”
As announced by Grant, the project is being created for Netflix, which has been home to Black Mirror since 2019. There’s no further details about the mockumentary as of yet.
