Netflix Releases Photos From “Black Mirror”

Today Netflix released some photos from the up coming series Black Mirror. If you are not aware of this series it is based on a British TV series from creator and writer Charlie Brooker. I highly recommend that you find this series and give it a watch.

The series has a modern day look and feel of the classic American series, The Twilight Zone. If you are a fan of that series you will love Black Mirror.

Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm – a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us. The series is created and written by Charlie Brooker, and executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones.
