A NETFLIX comedy which was released this month was filming closer to home than you might think.

Rowan Atkinson’s new TV series Man Vs Bee was in fact filmed at an undisclosed location in Slough.

The story follows house sitter Trevor, who finds himself wrapped up in an ongoing battle with a bee while he’s looking after a mansion.

Berkshire Film Office and Slough Borough Council assisted the production in finding a unit base for the film crews to park their cars and tech vehicles.
