An Atkinson-owned production company is behind the writing of the script, which is being penned by Davies, who will also assist as executive producer alongside Chris Clark.
According to the show’s synopsis, ‘A guy gets into a fight with a bee while house-sitting for an affluent family.’ Each episode of the 10-episode miniseries will only be 10 minutes long. Netflix UK Scripted Boss Anne Mensah commissioned seven projects in late 2020 as the streaming service ramped up its attempts to generate original UK programming. Rowan Atkinson, who plays Mr. Bean, and Will Davies, who created Johnny English, will appear in the June 24 premiere.
It all begins after Trevor lands a house-sitting job in a beautiful posh mansion. The bumbled dad, who is very excited about landing the brand new job opportunity, makes some calls while in the mansion to brief people about the new job. His phone call is interrupted when he notices a bee in the house. Wilts swinging his hand tries to shoo away the bee only to break an artifact statue on a stool. Enraged, he hangs up, which is when the hell breaks loose when his controversial fight with the bee begins.
The catastrophic battle escalates, the aftermath is ugly, the mansion is ruined, and much damage has been caused. It is unclear whether Trevor has a phobia of bees or if he was getting rid of the bug. In his quest to get rid of the bee, Trevor goes to great lengths to use explosives, shoes, sick sucker and many unnecessary but humorous methods. What will be the owner’s reaction to the damage caused?
