Documentary Now! Plot and Cast
This TV series of a mockumentary genre, created by a famous American SNL show crew with Helen Mirren as a hostess, is highly praised by critics. There are two “fixtures” of the project, F. Armisen and B. Hader, starring, and a guest cast perfectly hand-picked as well.
Every episode is full of specific jokes and gags, given in a straight-faced way. The plots used are taken from real documentaries of previous years, altered a bit and dressed with humour and some kind of derision. Topics vary a lot, from cultural to political, touching upon the lives of both famous and ordinary people.
Another brilliant thing to be mentioned is a detailed imitation of the original style of each episode narration. One can hardly distinguish right from wrong here. The lead roles in TV series were played by Fred Armisen and Bill Hader with Helen Mirren as host.
