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.

Also you can catch a look at the wrist bracelets and head band that the character wears in the comics.
