'Black Mirror' is Getting a U.S. Remake

Endemol Shine North America announced it's begun to work on U.S. remake of the British sci-fi series Black Mirror, Variety reports.

Created by Charlie Brooker, the Channel 4 anthology has been described as "a contemporary British reworking of The Twilight Zone" and a twisted parable for the Twitter age that looks at how technology has transformed virtually every aspect of our lives. Debuting in 2011, the series drew interest in the United States when it was added last year to Netflix.

Endemol Shine Co-CEO Charlie Corwin confirmed Wednesday at the Realscreen Summit in Washington, D.C., "there is a plan" but he declined to elaborate. He added that Brooker and producer Annabel Jones "have really touched on something [with Black Mirror] and I agree -- we need more."

Brooker previously said he would be the showrunner for any U.S. rendition of his creation. Additionally, Robert Downey Jr.'s Team Downey banner optioned for the film rights to the Black Mirror episode "The Entire History of You."
