The official trailer for Netflix’s newest comedy series, ‘Man vs. Bee,’ has been dropped. It stars Mr. Bean actor Rowan Atkinson in the role of a man whose housesitting job goes dreadfully wrong all because of a difficult-to-catch bee. The first episode of the series is set to land online on June 24.

Davies and Chris Clark serve as executive producers for Man vs. Bee, while David Kerr seats on the director’s chair. The series will consist of nine episodes, each lasting between 10 and 20 minutes.
Atkinson has imprinted on worldwide audiences with his classic role as Mr. Bean, a character he played in the 15-episode British same-titled comedy. In 2002, however, it was brought back to life as an animated series, with Atkinson returning to voice and executive produce the five-season animated comedy.
