Munya Chawawa Lands His First Writing Job On Netflix Special 'Death To 2020'


To round off what has been a stellar year for the UK based, Zimbabwean comedian, Munya Chawawa recently announced that he secured his first writing job on the mystery special Death To 2020 - a mockumentary by Black Mirror creators Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones released December 27 on Netflix.

The Executive producer of the show, Charlie Brooker assembled a sizeable writing room for the show, comprising Tom Baker, Kemah Bob, Ken Bordell, Munya Chawawa, Constance Cheng, Alan Connor, Erika Ehler, Charlie George, Eli Goldstone, Mollie Goodfellow, Jason Hazeley, Angelo Irving, Kae Kurd, Ali Marlow, Thanyia Moore, Joel Morris and Michael Odewale.


‘Death To 2020 features fictional characters discussing real events in a bombastic mockumentary, but quite a bit sillier than that makes it sound. It felt like an apt format for Netflix, which is known for high-end documentaries, but also like a good opportunity to create a different kind of comedy special that deals with the year head-on while also showcasing some brilliant performers.
