David Harbour is getting stranger for Netflix’s upcoming mockumentary “Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein.” If that title didn’t already make it clear this project would be even weirder than Harbour’s “Stranger Things,” the trailer certainly will, as it features Harbour playing very dramatic versions of both himself and his “father,” David Harbour Jr.In the 1-minute, 31-second clip above, Harbour explains how he’s been uncovering “lost footage” of his dad and his made-for-TV play, “Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein,” to learn about his “father.” The trailer gives you a tiny taste of what’s in this “found footage,” which is the not-so-stable, acting genius David Harbour Jr. and his dreams for his masterpiece.(In real life, Harbour’s dad, Ken, sells commercial real estate in Westchester County, New York.)The streaming service says you should “expect the unexpected in this over-the-top and often dramatic(ish) reimagined tale of mystery and suspense.”Also Read: 'Stranger Things 3': Joe Keery and Maya Hawke on Steve, Robin and Dustin's 'Slapstick' Starcourt Mall Adventure (Video)Alfred Molina, Kate Berlant, and more special guests will appear in the mockumentary, as Harbour “explores the depths of his family’s acting lineage to gain insight into his father’s legacy – all in 28-minutes.”“Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein” is directed by Daniel Gray Longino (“Kroll Show” and “PEN15”) and written by John Levenstein (“Arrested Development” and “Kroll Show”).Watch the trailer above.“Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein” launches July 16 on Netflix.Read original story ‘Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein’ Trailer: David Harbour Plays a Very Dramatic Version of His Father (Video) At TheWrap

“Stranger Things” star David Harbour is about to do something even stranger at Netflix: a mockumentary special called “Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein.”

Yes, you read that title right.

Per Netflix, the project follows Harbour as he uncovers lost footage from his father’s televised stage play, “Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein.” The streaming service says you should “expect the unexpected in this over-the-top and often dramatic(ish) reimagined tale of mystery and suspense.”

Alfred Molina, Kate Berlant, and more special guests will appear in the mockumentary, as Harbour “explores the depths of his family’s acting lineage to gain insight into his father’s legacy – all in 28-minutes.”

“Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein” is directed by Daniel Gray Longino (“Kroll Show” and “PEN15”) and written by John Levenstein (“Arrested Development” and “Kroll Show”).

While you wait for the special to hit Netflix on July 16, you can get your Harbour fix when Jim Hopper and the rest of the residents of the fictional Hawkins, Indiana return to the streaming service with the eight-episode third season of “Stranger Things,” which launches July 4. You can probably expect the unexpected from that, too.
