Charlie Brooker's 'Black Mirror' Reportedly Becoming a Netflix Show
Published Sep 08, 2015Though there's no shortage of terrible trash, British TV is more often than not a cut above other countries in the western world. Part of that is thanks to cultural critic, comedian and writer Charlie Brooker. When he's not telling it like it is with his series of Wipe shows, he's offered up a handful of chilling and thought-provoking episodes in his anthology series Black Mirror. Now, North Americans may have better access to the show, as it's reportedly becoming a Netflix series.
Netflix finally started playing the first season of Black Mirror late last year, and it's proven to be a hit among North American viewers. According to Radio Times, the streaming service is planning to produce their own episodes of the show.
While details are scarce, a source told the site that Brooker and his House of Tomorrow production company successfully negotiated a deal with Netflix to make "multiple episodes" of the show.
Airing on Channel 4 in the UK, Black Mirror has already offered up two seasons and a Christmas special. Channel 4 will likely air the new episodes of Black Mirror as well in partnership with Netflix.
