Most of us do not cause a cataclysm when trying to chase away a troublesome insect, but the same cannot be said for Rowan Atkinson.
The great English comedian, known in Italy above all for Mr. Bean , will in fact be the protagonist of the Man vs Bee series , out on Netflix on June 24th .
In the first poster we see Atkinson struggling with the eponymous bee, while a saucepan is on fire behind him. The man is the keeper of a luxurious mansion, and wages an all-out war with the bug over 10 episodes. We can imagine that a catastrophe will result.
Each episode will last between 10 and 20 minutes, standard length for comedy series (especially with a subject like this). Waiting for the trailer, you can see the poster below.
