Anyone who’s seen any of Black Mirror can attest to its brilliance as one of the more thought provoking, wonderfully uncomfortable and oft-times downright magnificently horrific series on television today. And now, for every fan out there who wants to know more about the inner workings of this critically successful creation, you can. This November Penguin Books will be releasing Inside Black Mirror, a behind-the-scenes look at how this series was conceived, planned and executed.
Written by series creator, Charlie Brooker, sharing writing duties with series’ producer and long-time collaborator, Annabel Jones, and scriptwriter/writer Jason Arnopp, here’s the official blurb:
This first official book logs the entire Black Mirror journey, from its origins in creator Charlie Brooker’s mind to its current status as one of the biggest cult TV shows to emerge from the UK. Alongside a collection of astonishing behind-the-scenes imagery and ephemera, Brooker and producer Annabel Jones will detail the creative genesis, inspiration and thought process behind each film for the first time, while key actors, directors and other creative talents relive their own involvement.
Sounds like a book packed full of Easter Eggs too. I man, I’d love to delve deeper into some of those items on show in series’ four’s finale, Black Museum. Wouldn’t you? A perfect sticking filler for any fan of this show this Holiday season.
