A U.S. rendition of “Black Mirror,” the British sci-fi series that has been a buzzy hit for Netflix, is in the works, the new leaders of Endemol Shine North America said Wednesday at the Real Screen confab.

The keynote session at the Washington Hilton marked the first major public appearance by Cris Abrego and Charlie Corwin since they were tapped co-CEOs and co-chairmen of Endemol Shine North America.

Corwin confirmed that “there is a plan” regarding a U.S. version of the “Twilight Zone”-esque series created by Charlie Brooker and produced by Annabel Jones for Endemol U.K. He declined to elaborate other than to say that Brooker and Jones “have really touched on something and I agree – we need more.”

Brooker has previously said he would be the showrunner on any U.S. series rendition.

If Brooker is running it, it's on cable and are new episodes instead of remakes I'll be up for it,

Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror to become a Netflix show

Exclusive: Sources say the US streaming giant has agreed terms to make original episodes of the hit dystopian drama


Charlie Brooker's dystopian drama series Black Mirror has been snapped up by Netflix, RadioTimes.com understands.

The streaming giant is understood to have agreed terms with Brooker and his independent production company House of Tomorrow to make "multiple episodes” of the dystopian drama, according to sources involved in the negotiations.

Netflix has already shown episodes of the drama, which first aired on Channel 4, in the US. The series has proved a word-of-mouth hit since launching in December, with some fans even holding Black Mirror viewing parties.

As RadioTimes.com revealed in May, Netflix was in talks with Brooker and House of Tomorrow over a possible deal, which has reportedly progressed. It is understood that Brooker is currently writing scripts for a new run of the Channel 4-originated drama which explores the dark and troubling aspects of technology.

So far, Channel 4 has aired two series and a Christmas special of the show and is likely to be keen to acquire future episodes of the drama and be the first UK broadcaster to air them.

12 new episodes confirmed. Going into production later this year. http://variety.com/2015/digital/news/ne ... 201602037/

Seems like whether or not Channel 4 or Netflix have it in the UK and Ireland is still being discussed.

I still never got onto the second series of this, which is madness because I love them. The Christmas one was spectacularly bleak.

strawberry floating yes. :datass:

The first two seasons are back on UK Netflix. Not up on Irish Neflix yet for some reason although apparently they will be by the time the new episodes are out.

Edit: They're up now.

I watched the first three and it's as brilliant as ever!

Nosedive:
Joe Wright did an incredible job directing this, it looks amazing. The story was fairly straightforward and you could see where it was going but I really liked that ending.

Playtest:
Once it got going this was pretty much pure horror film, and a good one at that! Loved the cupboard scene. Not quite so keen on the multiple endings but it was still a truly excellent hour of TV.

Shut up and Dance:
I think this might be the first episode since S01E01 that was present day and didn't use any future tech, which makes it all the more plausible and frightening. Again it was a brilliant hour of TV and some incredible acting in this one. A rather bleak ending (as usual with Black Mirror) but you could tell it wasn't ever going to have a happy one.


Hard to rank them as they've all been superb and distinct from one another.

I thought it was a pretty bad ep.

Followed the same trend as the other weak episodes of the show by relying too much on a twist ending that you could see coming after 15 minutes.

San Junipero was amazing! That's definitely an episode that couldn't have been done without the bigger budget they've (presumably) now got.

I completely missed the 'twist' at first and still really enjoyed the episode. I thought the hackers were just making up the child porn thing as the video they filmed wouldn't have shown what he was watching.

Yeah I just watched that. Brilliant and quite unlike the rest of the series.

I just watched S1E1 as I've never watched this show before and it was so grim. Not really sure what I felt about it other than unease. I do know I'm really intrigued to watch another though.
