Netflix has released the first trailer for Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein, an upcoming comedic mockumentary.
Stranger Things star David Harbour will try his hand at comedy in the new short film from Netflix and some of the minds behind Kroll Show. As the title suggests, Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein will involve a good deal of absurdism as Harbour (playing both himself and his father) seeks to uncover a mystery from his past.
Along with the trailer, Netflix has released a synopsis for the short that further hints at what viewers can expect:
In this new mockumentary, join "Stranger Things" actor David Harbour as he uncovers lost footage from his father's televised stage play, Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein.
Expect the unexpected in this over-the-top and often dramatic(ish) reimagined tale of mystery and suspense. With appearances by Alfred Molina, Kate Berlant, and more special guests, Harbour explores the depths of his family's acting lineage to gain insight into his father's legacy - all in 28-minutes.
The special will be directed by Daniel Gray Longino (PEN15) and written by John Levenstein (Arrested Development). Aside from their individual credits, both Longino and Levenstein worked together on Nick Kroll's Comedy Central sketch series Kroll Show.
Though he's mostly known for dramatic roles, we'll soon learn how suited Harbour is for comedy. However, before Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein debuts, Harbour will return to Netflix on July 4 in his most popular role. The final Stranger Things Season 3 trailer dropped recently, and it teased some interesting developments for Chief Hopper. All told, July looks to be an exciting month for Harbour and his fans.
Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein arrives on Netflix on July 16.
