Netflix is preparing to release some new originals, one of which is a series called History of Swear Words, presented by Nicolas Cage. As you would expect, given the nature of the show and its host, the trailer begins with Cage screaming a profanity dramatically, introducing an educational exploration of those words.
Netflix released the trailer for its special comedy today, stating that viewers will learn about the history of name calling in a six-part series mixed with a little humor. The trailer features a series of people participating in the special, including the best possible host for this type of show: Nicolas Cage.
The two-minute trailer provides a good overview of what the comedy special will include – it seems that popular myths surrounding the origin of these words will be included, as well as comments on how the words evolved in society and how they might even be beneficial (hint: it involves a bucket of ice water).
As revealed in the trailer, other celebrities who are part of the show include Jim Jefferies, Nick Offerman and Sarah Silverman, among others. You will be able to broadcast it on Netflix from January 5, 2021. Go to the comedy page on Netflix to receive an alert when it arrives.
History of Swear Words is one of multiple original comedies that Netflix plans to premiere in the coming days. Before its release, Death to 2020 will come on December 27, presenting viewers with a fake documentary full of stars that calls for fictional experts to comment on last year.
