Rob Lowe and Charlie Brooker are teaming up for Attack of the Hollywood Clichés!, a new Netflix comedy special.
Hosted by former Rat Pack member, movie star, and handsome devil Rob Lowe, the special features some of the most famous films in cinematic history along with a plethora of Hollywood A-Listers, screenwriters, academics and critics as they guide us through the clichés that appear on our cinema screens.
These include such tropes “Walking Away from an Explosion” and the “Meet-Cute”, as well as “Females Running in Stilettos”. While that doesn’t inspire hope for much serious cinematic debate, the special does boast an impressive roster of talent, with Lowe and Brooker exec-producing alongside Jon Petrie and Annabel Jones. It is produced and directed by Sean Doherty, with Alice Mathias and Ricky Kelehar also serving as directors. Ben Caudell serves as head writer, with writers Dane Baptiste, Sean Doherty, Erika Ehler, Jason Hazeley, Daniel Maier, Michael Odewale and Charlie Skelton.
The result premieres on Netflix on 28th September.
Attack of the Hollywood Clichés is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
